Just sighted in my new scope from sample list, on a sako hunter 300wsm, Kalhes multi zero 3x10x50, used sako rings and mounts, LOW. Last week used "A" setting to do 100 yard zero, grouped perfect!!! 1inch group on bulleyes.
 
Now, this week 200 yard line.
 
1st question, do i have to move setting back to "a" for my 100 yard line mark. During hunting? and still have my other zeros
 
2nd, I know i have to turn to "B" and adjust it all back to the arrow on bottom, then start shooting my 200yard zero going from bottom to up, once turn to "C"
 
3rd do i leave i on "c" setting when im am finished zeroing the rifle at all yard lines or turn it back to "A"
 
I just a little confused, I have a pretty good idea on how the scope works, but any help if you understand my questions, might save me some ammo
 
semper fi

Use a ballistics calculator to set your turrets. Then all you need to do is fine tune for the rifle. This will save a lot of ammo. Remember roughly 3 clicks to the inch on the Kahles.

C

it took me a few reads of the manual to grasp it
it's really simple once it clicked

A is for the setup, or one point of aim, C is for the Multizero system.

You've got several things wrong.  To watch a demonstration go to
 
 
click on the "download video" and download the .wmv - it may take a while (all that buffering BS) but after downloading it is a video instruction of how to set up the MultiZero.
 
But I'll go through it anyway.  You set the turret on A mode and leave it there until you set your zero, either at 100 or 200 yards (I set mine to zero at 200 yards).  Then while holding the turret so it does not turn you move the dial to B.  When the dial is on B you rotate the dial counter-clockwise till it stops.  That will set the zero.  Then without moving the turret you set the dial on C
 
and leave it there. 
 
Then you shoot the gun at the next yardage you want and zero it for that yardage by clicking the elevation knob.   When you are zeroed at that yardage you move the mark on the turret to line up with the arrow below the turret
 
For instance on my guns (yes I have 2 of the MultiZeros) I set the zero stop at 200 yards shown here in this pic (you don't have to use a mark at the zero stop) 
 
and in this pic this mark is for 400 yards since the first mark is 300 yards
 
But the point is that from then on you leave the dial on C mode unless you want to reset your zero stop.  Then you would put it back on A, reset your zero, move to B, rotate counterclockwise to reset your zero and then move to C mode again for all your shooting.

Thank you sir. That is the best explanation I've seen yet, it is better than the video!

 And that, Ladies and Gentlemen, is a classic example of Sakomato giving 110 percent.

 (As he does with nearly every technical post he makes.)
 
Clear, concise, knowledgable, and accompanied by great macro photos.
  Helpful, as always.
 
 Well done, Bob!

 Agreed!
Not many people can do close-up photography very well at all. Sako seems to have the knack, though.

Thanks, guys.  The trick is getting the right camera.  When I went to the camera store I made that clerk show me how well the different cameras took macro.  You'd be surprised how few of them actually do take good ones.  I wound up with a discontinued and on sale ($200.00) Nikon CoolPix S4 which is fairly large for the new digital cameras.  It takes AA batteries and has a swivel head
 
but it is easy to set for macro
 
and it also zooms way out with a 6.3-63mm F3.5 10X optical zoom
 
that's at about 80 yards, this is the same deer at 40 yards
 
Anyway, back to the MultiZeros.  I found both of mine NIB on Gunbroker for $600.00 ea a couple of years ago when they weren't selling well.  Great idea and great optics.
