Default # of clicks for M1 Garand zero

I pulled my M1 Garand out of the safe for a match. I use a 6 o'clock hold on SR targets. My 100 yd zero is 14 clicks up and my 200 yd zero is 16. Does this seem higher than normal? I don't get much cheek weld on my thumb like I used to. It seems accurate enough (can hold the black at 200 yd prone)

Talon,
It sounds fine to me. 14 clicks up for 100' and 16 at 200' is right in the ballpark. Eddie

You can use a file to lower the front sight and square it off at the same time. I prefer somewhere around 8 clicks for a 100yd zero. Good Shooting. ...

8 clicks is where I start for sighting in at 100 with a center hold. From there is seems most rifles will zero within no more than a few clicks up or down. 14 for a 6 o’clock hold sounds normal.

While most people start around 8 clicks, that the OP is at 14 is (imo) not a big deal.
My last CMP purchase landed at 12 clicks for 100 yds.
As long as you note it somewhere what does it matter?
Yeah, I know you will loose those clicks at the end, how many of us need them at 600yds?
It's just where the rifle shoots, why file it to get to some specific number?
25 or so clicks at 100, that may be an issue, but again, if you still have enough to get to the ranges you shoot, why worry?

There is no "normal" zero. It will vary rifle to rifle

I've had one Garand that still shoots a little high with the rear sight run as low as it can go. I've played with bedding, stock fit etc. I finally built up the front sight with J&B Weld. Other than that it's an accurate rifle.
