    Default RMR Zero?

    Ok, I got the Suarez mount mounted, and the RMR screwed down. An older thread seemed to recommend a 25 yard zero with “slug of choice” then test buck shot loads at varying distances to see what your pattern does. Does this guidance still hold true? I thought I would check to see if there was any new tips I should consider before heading to the range.

    FWIW, I’ve been running a Suarez ported barrel and tritium bead for a while, and it allows easy slug hits out to about 50 if you take your time.

    i mean you can pattern it at whatever distance you want, but we suggest 25yds

    People have asked me if I consider myself a good or bad person. The truth of it is, I don't know or care. I have been called both. I like to think I have saved more lives than I have ended. Either way, I can still sleep at night.

    I think we both meant with slugs.

    Zero with slugs at 25. Then test your pattern with buckshot at different distances so you know how it performs at each distance.

    Well, I'm not Gabe but I do use the Stakeout w/RMR on warrant teams. I zero for our issued slugs at 25 yards and then verify with 00 buck.

    Thanks everyone, seems the guidance has not changed. Jon, just curious, what are your issued slugs? My stash is old fashioned Remington Fosters. Range trip forth coming...

    This method also field-tested daily during last SG class. Greg and I made strikes out to 174 yds with slugs and my RMR’d 20 ga SI Tomahawk-like 870.

    Thanks Brent and Jon. Jon, Thinking of using on my warrant detail. Do you use just for breaching or anti-personnel as well?

    My issued slugs are Winchester Ranger Reduced Recoil. There’s a pretty dramatic shift in POI when I’ve shot regular slugs.
