Zeroing Your Rifle
This target relies on you knowing how to zero your rifle, so it’s not for newbies and first-timers. However, if you don’t know how to zero your AR-15, then no problem. It’s straight forward, and you can probably pick it up with some common sense and watching YouTube. Knowing how to zero your rifle is a required skill to be a ‘real’ shooter. Most likely, the range officer at your local range can help you out if you get stuck. It’s common for people to not know, so don’t feel embarrassed.
Do yourself and everyone around you a favor. Take the time to zero your rifle properly, and to confirm zero regularly.
It’s irresponsible to have a rifle that isn’t sending bullets where you want them to go. Remember that a rifle that shoots “a few inches to the left” at 10 yards will only shoot more and more to the left the further away your target is. This can mean the difference between shooting a home intruder and shooting through the wall into someone’s room.
You should be able to send your bullets where they need to go, and you can’t do that without a zeroed rifle.
Use this free printable M4 zero target to save some time and frustration. Zero whenever you mount a new optic, buy a new rifle, or after routine maintenance.
