The Leupold VX-R Scout is what brought me to this site. I have a Savage scout and soon discovered that trying to see into shadows at low light with a scout scope was like looking thru a brick.I know that you will let us know when more SS (scout scpoes) arrive. I have a VX-R 1.25x4 on a flattop carbine AR-10 7.62x51. What zero do some of you set your scopes for this type firearm.

Welcome to Optics Talk. 

I would imagine that most hunters and shooters here, (shooting center fire rifles), will use a 100 yard zero.
I know all my rigs are set up for 100 yards, save my AR with a Aimpoint T1 and it's zero'd at 50 yards.  

I have a VX-R 3-9x, with a Fire Dot and like it pretty well.

I would probably lean toward a 200 yard zero on the AR-10 (I assume that is the one you are asking about).

With low mag scope, I tend to want to maximize MPBR a little.

50 yd zero will be dead on at 200 yds and what I sight all my rifles at.
