    Most of the time I zero my scope at 50yds with CCI mini-mags.
    I wanted to make a table for number of clicks elevation adjustment
    at various distances and ammo. After googl’in around I found a
    target with scales that you can download as a pdf and then just print
    them out. I sure there must be commercial targets that you can buy,
    but these are free and worked quite well. I now a table for various ammo
    loads at different distances.
    There is also a download target to practice wind holdover shots, but I did
    not get a chance to try it out yet.
    The site is: borelsport.com

    Looks a little "busy" to me. We just use some butcher paper and draw a 3" square in the middle or pin a regular circular target on it. Then click over and up/down. Oh, welcome to the forum!

    What gun were you using to get those groupings? Just wondering.

    I'd move it 3/4" to the right and 7" up and shoot some more. Appears to be the distance from the center of each group to the right and the distance between the two group centers to the upper bull.

    It was a Ruger AmericaRimfire. 12X scope, shooting from the bench using a gun rest.

    Welcome to the forum. I've got a bunch of cci mini mags. I haven't been too impressed. Federal bulk shoots tighter in my 10/22 and marlin60

    Nice gun. I looked at one at Academy and I like how it felt. Congrats.
