YippeeThis simple ruler that fits in my wallet has saved me tons of money by reducing the number of shots required to zero a scope:

Or use a scope with a reticle that has uniform subtensions and matching turrets, e.g. mil/mil or MOA/MOA. Since converting over to those, I've generally zeroed in 2 shots, with occasionally 1-2 more for fine-tuning. Especially with FFP scopes, I've found it's easy that way to spot the difference between POA and POI, then correct.
Make every shot count in some way - whether making sure you're holding the rifle correctly, breaking the trigger properly, breathing right - and no bullet will ever be totally wasted.
