I'm sure a 150 yard zero will work well. I happen to be using a 100 yard zero because I don't have easy access to a longer range. My MOA adjustment is +1" for 150 and +2.5" for 200 with my set up. Shrug. It seems to be working.

Thanks for the info. I may just zero for 100 and try your numbers.

You'll have to take into account your set ups center scope to center bore distance (scope height) into account. My set up could be different and this number will affect the MOA "clicks."

I have access to a 300 yard range so confirming “come ups” is not much of an issue. I’m sure your numbers will be pretty close give or take a variance in scope height. I am mounting the scope tonight and hope to give it a try tomorrow evening.

Cool! Be sure to post up your findings in the 17 WSM forum: https://www.rimfirecentral.com/forum...play.php?f=271

First One with the CZ455 for Me

Eika sniffed out two juveniles late this afternoon and a snapping turtle. Well leave that alone girl.

I was thinking she was going to steal all the thunder when on our way out we walked up a rise to spy this red head. Eika was about 25 to 30 yards out in front and just about to clear the rise when I finally found the tone button for her collar. She about faced and came to heal. No time to set up a rested shot. I guestimated 80 yards and set up for an off hand. Went through the drill, settled my breathing and timed my bounce ... Nailed her in the ear at a ranged 86.4 yards.

Eika's first one:

Eika's second:

Eika contemplating what to do with a snapping turtle:

And then my off-hand - And if you can't tell i am mighty pleased with this shot

A fun afternoon walk.

I know this one doesn’t count for this forum, but got this one Friday at 250 yards with the 22-250.
Also, zeroed the 17 WSM at 100. I’m pretty happy. The holes around the sticker were from zeroing the scope. Last three shots were right on. I thought I was gonna get one with it the other day but he dropped into some tall grass and never stood back up. Heading back out tonight. Hope to get a few with the new 17.

Hogan1, I took the liberty to change the "rule." Any dead chuck is a good chuck for this thread. Dead by rimfire gets extra kudos.

Extra kudos Shanendoah!

Hogan1, your 17WSM looks like it will perform quite well.

The WSM did its job today. Got three, one at about 65, the other two right around 100 yards. The last one was in high grass next to about a foot long corn. So I had to extend the death grip all the way up and shoot it standing. The pic of that one is the second one down. Sorry, i uploaded them in the wrong order. The death grip makes life easy. This brings me to 11 so far for the year.
