Is it possible to zero a rifle at 50 yards?

It is possible to get pretty close to a 200 yard zero while using a rifle zeroing target at 50 yards. However, this requires using a chronograph to get an accurate velocity reading and a ballistic calculator to determine the expected trajectory deviation at 50 yards. Bottom line is 50/200 yard zeros are very usable for many applications.

What is the advantage of a 100 yard zero?

The chief benefit to using a 100 yard zero is that whether your bullet is going 2,500 fps or 3,000 fps it is the peak trajectory. That means from 0-100 yards you only need to be concerned with your height over bore when shooting a target. Live The Armory Life.
