Hello All

I am a new Tavor X95 owner (soon to be, enroute to my FFL).  After doing extensive research I decided on getting the X95 for its reliability and compact design.   I wanted something to carry in my Kawasaki Mule while doing ranch chores when I was not carrying a pistol (which is usually a FN FNX45 or a Sig P320 Compact in 9mm).   I live in Texas and frequently I will come up on some feral hogs or coyotes that I need to dispatch and almost all the time I am 75 to 200 yards away.   The Ranch I work on has a SOS Policy for Coyotes and Feral Hogs which I am happy to follow.

Here is my build thus far:

IWI Tavor X95 Purchase and Accessories   
IWI Tavor X95 - Gunbroker
Meprolight MEPRO Pro V2 Red Dot Sight ML5685018 - Optics Planet   
2 Magpul PMAG® Gen M3 30 Round & IWI Vertical Grip - IWI   
36" Plano Rifle All Weather Case - Optics Planet   
Inforce Tactical Light - Amazon   
Tavor X95 & Tavor 7 Pistol Grip - Flat Dark Earth - IWI

Appreciate any thoughts and opinions on this build out.  Fortunately I have unlimited access to a 200 Meter Rifle Range so plan on doing 25 yard zero procedure and dialing in the point of impact to 100 yards.   I don't take shots over 200 yards at a live animal because I don't want it to suffer due to a poor shot.  Therefore I think this is a good range but appreciate any thoughts here.  

Questions:

I can't find a Cleaning Kit.  Everyone is sold out.  Do I need one or can I make my own and if so.  Would appreciate any suggestions
Any other thoughts and ideas and what I should acquire in the build out?  I am still researching slings.

Thanks

Zero the rifle to 50 yards and you'll use the crosshairs for 50 and 200 yard shots. Your shot at 100 yards will be around 1.5" - 2" above PoI for 50 and 200 yards.

Just buy some plastic safe cleaner and oil like M-Pro 7 and a bore snake and get a cheap toothbrush. That'll pretty much cover the majority of your cleaning.

I use a 100 yard zero. Here's why....

There is no way to zero a sighting device so Point of Impact (POI) will equal Point of Aim (POA) at the muzzle. So, really close shots will always be lower than POA. If you zero at 100 yards, that is the peak of the trajectory (actually it will be a little higher at 120 yards, but only 1/2" or so). This means that from the muzzle to 200 yards the POI will be within 3" of the POA.

If you zero at 50 yards, the spread is much greater.  At the muzzle it will be 3" low and at 100 it will be 2" high. That's a 5" spread.


Also, with a 100 yard zero you only ever have to hold over to get an accurate hit. With a 50 yard zero you have to hold over sometime and under sometimes depending on distance.

This is why I use  a 100 yard zero.

Thanks Rastoff.  I plan on sighting in at 100 yards.  I will post results/pics once completed.

Go to www.shooterscalculator.com and use the Max. Point Blank Range (MPBR) calculator. Plug in target size of 4" the bullet weight and muzzle velocity. No hold under or over to worry about from 25 yds to 263 yds. That's for a 75 gr bullet. will change for other bullet wt/fps.

The optic I use for the BDC the manual read it should be zero'd at 200 yards. Since I don't have a 200 yard range I zero'd it at 50. I'm wondering if I zero'd at 100 how much that would throw off the BDC?

And nice build ReaperLily. The only thing I would add as a necessity is a sling.

BillyG, thank you.  I will do that.  Going to sight in with 55gr Winchester White Box.

What optic do you have? It doesn't really make sense to zero at 200 yards because that will be zeroing on the falling side of the trajectory. There is a point much closer that will achieve the same thing.

Steiner P4Xi.


The manual reads to zero at 200. A paragraph in this article says the same thing basically as the manual.

"If you zero the P4Xi at 200 yards, then those range compensation lines correspond to 300, 400, 500, and 600 yards as you move down. If you don’t have a 200-yard range to zero, no worries. Just zero the optic at 50 yards, and you’ll be within a fraction of an inch of dead-on at 200, assuming you use a standard-height MSR scope mount. By my math, you’ll be 1-inch high at 200 and cross the exact aim point at about 220 yards using a 3,000 fps, 55-grain .223 bullet."

OK, that makes sense. I've never heard of a manufacturer recommending a 200 yard zero before. Learn something new every day.

Yes, the info about zeroing at 50 and have the exact point of aim again at 220 is exactly right. You are doing it right and I agree with you continuing in this direction to ensure the BDC is working.

One other thing to consider; height over bore. A standard AR will have a scope height over bore of about 2.5"-2.75" while the Tavor is 3.5"-3.75" high. This will also throw the BDC off a little bit.

I created the attached chart using JBM Ballistics Trajectory Calculator and then importing into google sheets so I could further analyze the data.

I was reading all the posts here and everywhere on 25, 36, 50, 75, 100 , 200 yard  Zero.  Therefore I decided to do my own analysis comparing a 75 and a 100 yard zero using Winchester USA 5.56mm 55 Grain ammo and loading the respective specifications for this round.

My goal was to select the optimal range to sight my rifle to achieve a MPBR +/- 2" from Zero.

Hope you find it useful. It helped me finally decide what range to zero my Tavor X95.

Would like to hear your thoughts or anything I may have missed in my analysis.

Before I bought these new scopes that want the 50 yard zero I used a 75 yard zero.

 There is a nice 75 yard zero target I found here. You zero at 25 yards and POA is above POI.

And thanks for the PDF.

Thanks Zolkaf.  Yes I found that as well and already downloaded it for use.  I will be on the range Friday.  Great target.

Here is a photo of my 25 Yard Sight in Target.   I was going for 2.5" Low at 25 for a 75 yard zero.  With a Meprolight RDS Pro V2 my sights are approximately 3.5" high.  I still need to dial in the iron sights.
