I do 20. I have a very hard time getting any accuracy past that with my .22 Benjamin. Still trying to find a good pellet too; my best shooters are the metal tip with plastic tail, but I hit doves all of the time perfectly and they fly off.

My .22cal PCP is zeroed at 50 yards. The curve is fairly flat untill that point then starts to drop steeply. If you have a chronograph you can use Hawke Chairgun to get a good idea of your most efficient zero.
It's a free download and they have a handy smartphone app too if you are a geek like me.

Here's a demo.

Thanks guys. I'll work on 20 and go from there. I'll have to see if I can borrow a chronograph from my son :mrgreen: and see what it is shooting at.
