Sat down and did the math on this business with flip up
iron and red dot sights. 2 1/2" above bore center. 62gr
FMJ at 2950 fps from a 16" barrel. That calculates to
202m long zero. 1.6" high at 100m. And close zero is 41m.
Sure they got fancy gizmos to do this in a flash, but I'm
Zeroed the dot at 41m exact. Zeroed irons the same.
Test fired 100m with both on the notorious 10" iron
plate. Bingo! Right at an inch and a half above center!
My,oh,my.... Reckon I'll just keep 'ole Dr. Evil after
all. See, if I couldn't get it to shoot straight, I
was gonna trade it or sell it. But it's "making nice" now
so it can stay.
El Jefe', my 357Mag M92 levergun is still my #1, top dog,
primary rifle, but 2nd place in a competition consisting
of two is ok, right? Dr. Evil shouldn't feel left out
Note: becoming eccentric now, started naming guns!
