Establishing a precise zero is the foundation for effective marksmanship. Zeroing IR lasers has always been a chore. The ‘bloom’ or ‘halo’ caused by the laser dot on traditional zero targets make it close to impossible to determine with any precision where the laser dot (point of aim) actually is in relation to the center of the target. Our patent pending Zero Targets have three features that make zeroing easier and more precise.
First, they have a ½ inch reflective square at the center of the target (point of aim). When the laser is centered on the target the reflective square illuminates dramatically to indicate proper (exact) POA. We have seen a tremendous improvement in shot groups since we started using these targets in our classes.
Next, approximate impact area for zero distances of 50/ 200m, 100m, and 25/ 300m (using the constant offset method, which we generally recommend) are indicated by three circles that are printed onto the target.
Finally, each target has a zero adjustment grid that is designed to match the lasers adjustment increments so that 1 click on the laser’s adjustors = 1 square on the target. On this particular target, the grid squares are each 1 cm.
These 8.5" x 11" targets are sold in packs of 10, 50, or 100.
