I'd like to zero my scope for 25 yards, but I only have 10 yards to shoot indoors right now.
When I owned scopes with zero-resetting turrets I'd just get the rifle zero'd at 10 yards, then adjust the turrets to the approximate number of clicks required to have zero=25 yards. This would usually get me in the ball-park so I could get a final zero quickly once I had a full 25 yards to shoot.
Now that I have a cheapy scope (Bushnell 5-15) without zero-resetting turrets I'm wondering what the best method to do this would be?
Thanks.

ChairGun will calculate mildot adjust if your scope has a mildot reticule.

Here's a custom made turret for the 5-15 Legend... It's easy enough to set to zero..

If you're talking a non-PAL gun with round nose pellets if you zero at 8 yards, you will be about 1/2" high at 15 yards, close to zero at 22 yards and about 1/2" low at 25 yards.... those numbers done on Chairgun with a BC of 0.022 at a velocity of 480 fps....

Zero at 10 and shoot dead on until you have 25 available to you. Then just click down and re-zero for 25...should only take a few shots.

Thanks.

You old method will work fine if you follow the exact same procedure of zeroing at 10 and then clicking down to what would be your zero. Have a sticky click tape ready to go on your turret and once you get to actually zero it at 25 yards, stick the tape on the turret with the zero in the right place and you're good to go.

This click tape can be made by putting a strip of good paper around the turret and marking the clicks. It does not even have to be sticky. When ready, tape the unmarked section of the tape, that will be under the overlap, to the turret in the proper position. Wrap the strip around and put a coating of invisible tape over the whole thing to make it water resistant.
