that's what i was thinking.

What good scope is for a sniper rifle in airsoft? i have a Tasco 6-24 x 50mm. Is that too much ?

I have the same scope mounted on my M40A1 as well.

Remember that if you're zeroing really long ranges that necessitate a ballistic arc to reach, some areas "inside" the zero point will fall BELOW the aim point, i.e., your shot will fly ABOVE where your crosshair is pointed (and you'll actually end up with a Near and a Far Zero). The distances and arcs in airsoft are negligeable enough that it won't really prevent you from hitting a man-sized target (unless you're using some crazy arcs to try and get a 100m zero) but it may mess up some precision shooting (top of a shoulder sticking out from behind cover, etc)

well i almost reply to my question in asking it.

I thought i should put my zero point just before the bb arent still straight. So basicly shooting progressively to get the perfect further zero point then use the Arcs and calculate wind , denivalation\elevation to takedown opponent according to the situation. I do my zero point indoor, good temperature and range. but i think i need longer range.

what do you guys think of those lasers to set the zero point.. is it helpful? i've never try them yet. (maybe tomorrow)

I have the G&P M3 scope, it has working windage and range knobs, cant wait for the spring to start my "shot book" I'll be putting in every detail from
range(guessing of course)
windage set
range set
point of aim
point of impact

should be interesting to see if I can actually get some standard settings for wind and range.....once I finish putting the damn rifle together

Yes, that's the other way of doing it - however it really depends on how long a range you plan on engaging. The flat trajectory leg in airsoft is really short; it's probably a better way to zero optics for assault weapons.

Especially if sniper rifles (BA) have longer "minimum engagement range" rules where you play because of higher velocities; it really doesn't matter how accurate the aim is at 20 feet if you can't engage a target inside 30.

My recommendation (and others may not agree, this is just my personal preference) is 1) find the longest range you can engage accurately AND consistently (using a shallow ballistic arc) - not necessarily the furthest you can get shots out to effectively, 2) using that arc, Far Zero your scope to the point you were hitting consistently; measure that distance, and get used to eyeballing it, 3) using the same arc again, figure out where the Near Zero intersects with the trajectory (mostly trial and error) - measure exactly how far that is, since it may be inside your minimum "legal" range.

So now you know the range depth (between the two zeros) where shots may pass over your target (testing will show you by how much), you have a known range where you know your sight is zeroed and you should be able to nail stuff in that range with impunity, and testing/practice will show you how much you need to compensate to hit targets beyond that range, and just how far out you can engage (and be able to hit a torso-sized target more often than not).

Patience is one of the sniper's virtues, and the discipline is avoiding the temptation to try and take shots you can't make.

That's what I'm using also. I mostly use the lower settings for basic play. I use the higher settings in larger areas for spotting and gathering int. The 50mm is nice as it allows quite a bit of light gathering giving you a clearer picture through the scope.
