Assuming I zeroed it at 50 m. How much bullet drop if its , say, 100m and 130m?

I have mine zeroed at 25 yds and it is right on at 100 yds. I will give you the mid-range trajectory for some different bullet weights -- hope that will help you out some.

Mid-range trajectory (100 yds.)

30 gr. +1.4"
34 gr. JHP +1.4"
40 gr. JHP +1.7"
40 gr. FMJ +1.7"
50 gr. JHP +1.3"


Here is a sight-in chart for the .22 WMR 40 gr. at 1900 fps MV

+0" - 25 yds
+1" - 50 yds
+0" - 100 yds
-6" - 150 yds
-20" - 200 yds

I hope this is what you were looking for! Good luck!

Hueco, IINM, according to the most commonly accepting definition of "zeroing", you have yours zeroed at 100 yards, not 25 yards, per above. Yes, the bullet may be cross the zero plane at 25 yards, but "zero" usually refers to where the bullet crosses the zero plane the SECOND time. Oh, and thanks for the info on .22 mag.

Oooops, thanks for the correction. Well, there's one less thing to make me sound like an idiot -- just about 399,000 to go! :)
