"Trajectory for a 200 yards zero with a sight height of 1.5 inches"

I'm sorry. Does this mean.... 1.5" above ZERO @ 200 yards?

thanks for helping the dumb!

I have always thought ZERO meant point of impact at said yardage?
Guess I will learn with you. \:D

1.5" from bore to sight/reticle.

I guessing it would mean 1.5 inches high at 100 to be zero at 200. JMO based on what I'm reading but could be wrong and would depend on what you are shooting.

the 1.5 inches referenced in that dope is how high your scope is mounted,,if you have see through mounts say with the scope mounted at 2.25 inches you will have a drastic difference in where you would zero at 100 to be on at 200,,,a higher mounted scope would not need to be zeroed as high at 100 to be dead on at 200 than a compact scope mounted very close to the barrel.

It's how high your sight is from the center line of the bore.

Sight height is distance from centerline of bore to centerline of scope. Zero is distance where point of impact matches line of sight (bullet hits exactly where crosshairs are pointed). Some gun-scope set ups will actually have 2 zeros.

yes you will have two zero ranges,,one up close 30-40 yards where the bullet is rising from the rifle and will continue going up about 2/3rds of the way to your far zero then it will drop into your far zero,,how high your scope is mounted will effect the angles of this
