Just wondering what everybody else with similar scope is doing ?

I have a swarvoski Z5 on a 6.5x55 with BT 130 grain accubonds 2820 fps

what spacing are you setting for each distance ?

This is what I am doing
Zero                200
1st ring           250
2nd ring          300
3rd ring           350

Opinions? 

thought about
200 zero
300
400
500
would that be too far apart?

Depends on the distances you expect to shoot, why have 500 yard setting if you don't plan to shot past 350. Personaly I would leave it where it is, but I tend to limit myself to 300m shots. There are too many variables when shooting at a animal past 300m, and I don't get to practice those distances enough. I believe we owe it to the animal to give him a quick death, not take a chance.

I would use your current settings.  If you really want to stretch it out, make your zero 200 yards (around 1.5-1.75"  high at 100), the second ring 300 and the third ring 400.  Otherwise, I think your first list is fine.
 
That's how I set up my MZs.
