Good piece and posted.

Gravity: it's not just a good idea, it's the law!

The first guy I took a rifle course with talked about how the bullet rises in the AR platform, but that other guns are flatter shooters. This was like putting sand spurs in my brain.

It didn't take too much time to figure out what's really going on, you just need to look at the gun from the side. The "flatter shooters" have a much lower profile sights than an AR.

Excellent article. I go with the 100-yard zero, personally.

I have mine set up for 46 yards. Second zero is then 180 yards. Highest point is +1.5 inches at 120 yards. So it leaves the barrel 2 inches below the sights, never gets more than an inch and a half above, and doesn't drop more than 2 inches below until right at 200 yards.

That's my USPSA multi-gun zero. It means a center hold gives "A" zone hits anywhere on our ranges.
