HERE IS A METHOD FOR AN (emergency scope ZERO check).
IF YOU DROP YOUR GUN AND YOU DON’T KNOW IF IT IS STILL ZEROED. . .
You can CHECK YOUR a 100 yd. ZERO in the field by firing a shot AT THE CORRESPONDING CLOSE RANGE ZERO.
Measured the distance as good as you can because a little error means ALOT). If your going away from home on a $4500.+ hunt you may want to carry a piece of string cut at the right length the muzzle to the corresponding short range zero.
EXAMPLE: If you were originally sighted in at 100 yards with the Lightfield Mag 20ga than your close range zero point is 18 yards. Fire a shot at a measured 18yards off of a rest, as best you can. If the shot is dead on or just touching the point of aim then the gun is still zeroed at 100 yards. If you are more than 1/2″ off the point of aim, you should make the appropriate scope adjustment back to the point of aim.
NOTE: All 100 yards numbers are in bold black type.
