Steps on How to Zero Sig Romeo 5
Check out the steps and guides for easy adjustment for Zeroing Sig Romeo 5.
Step 1: Prepare the Paper Target
First of all, you should know about MOA (minute of angle). MOA is a measurement of a unit. So if you choose 100 yards or range to shoot, 1 MOA means 1-inch adjustment at 100 yards. Use a paper target with a grid square and hang it at 100 yards for better understanding. If you are not using Romeo 5 magnifiers then the target should be in 100 yards.
Step 2: Adjust the Windaze and Elevation Button
The Romeo 5 has an elevation and windage adjustment button. Aim the rifle at the middle of the grid lines. The windage and elevation is a 1-inch adjustment per click. Elevation adjustment means up and down adjustment and windage means left or right adjustment.
If you shoot 3 inches lower and 4 inches left from the main aiming point, take a screwdriver and click the elevation button 3 times to make the dot high. The first shot could be anywhere at the paper target.
Now you have to bring the dot to the right. So click the windage button four times with a screwdriver to place the red dot on the main aiming point. The red dot may not be exactly on the target, but it will close.
Step 3: Understand the MOA for Zeroing Romeo Target
Remember, the click changes in different yards or distances. The reticle type 1 MOA at 100 yards means 1-inch movement. It will change in ½ inch in 50 yards. 1 MOA at 25 yards distance means ¼ inch movement.
That means in 50 yards, you have to click windage and elevation double the time. However, the Romeo 5 should be installed in the centerline of the barrel.
