yes it was sighted in for 75 yards agreed with them that getting a 100 yrds was more trouble than it was worth the bullseye being difficult to pick out at that distance.

It's not that complicated. If you want to zero at 100 yards, you need to shoot from 100 yards. he needs to find someplace in which to do that.
That is easier.

But not required.

Even the military uses a reduced range zero, instead of shooting at long ranges.

Just put a Vortex crossfire on an AR I had scoped last week. Talking to people at shows it's the way to go with aging eyes. Scope is zeroed at 100yds. Put a bore sight tool in I picked up at show and focused on a picture in living room from end of hall, which is about 30ft. Had rifle benched so would not move. The bore sight was about 2" lower than crosshairs on scope. Dead on windage. Now I knew about where I was. So popped quick disconnect on scope and removed. Put red dot on and damn, it was right on. Right where the scope crosshairs were. Did click down a couple of clicks to get it closer to 60 yds. Haven't shot with it yet but I like it. Sorry if I hijacked thread. Carry on.

I have encountered many 'new to optics' shooters, who after multiple trips to the range and sometimes hours of dialing and redialing, have no idea which way is up. In many cases, with most factory set scopes, they are often times able to hit paper at 25 yds. right out of the box.
Sometimes it's better to start from scratch. No need to crawl deeper into the weeds.
