OK, I'm finally ready to get out to the range and sight in my new .177. Question is what is the optimal range to zero it? What's the trajectory of a pellet? Is it flat enough that if I am dead on at 25 yds I won't have to hold over at 50 (I suppose that's about the effective range (for hunting))? My centerfire ballistics tables won't do pellets.

Thanks!

Most of the combo scope/rifle's say they are set up @ 33 meters.
I'd start there, and then see what pellet works best with you're rifle.
