Jim Leatherwood developed the ART scopes during the 60's to solve the important problem of range estimation. In Automatic Mode, the ART scopes can range targets of known dimension and compensate for the bullet's trajectory in one action. But, what if you wanted to increase the magnification more than what was given by Automatic mode?
In this lesson we’re going to take a look at how to use our ballistic calculator or dope data from our rifle log to zero our ART scope at a closer distance. In order to obtain an equivalent 200 yard zero for the M1000 at 25 yards, we’ll first need to understand the relationship between the optic’s line of sight, the rifle’s line of bore, and the bullet’s path.
