    Oh I do it and it never works. I use my spotting scope to get distance and I'll guess when it's over 200m I've got zero hit markers so I just keep it at 60 and aim accordingly ... think that mess is broken cause i had someone at 305 so i did 300 and they weren't moving and i shot like 10x and just gave up

    I believe you have to hold Y to cycle through zeroing distances while scoped in.

    It feels like when you change it to higher zeroing that it does less damage. I switched it to 300, and can see i got a headshot but the got kept moving, shot him 4 times and he was still alive. Switched back to 60 and he was dead with one shot.

    No problem connecting on your shot though? I swear I measured my spot many many times and may only be max 20 m off my zeroing and i can't connect no matter if I am on the head, body, over the head, etc... like I legit think I've never got 1 hit marker.

    That might be a connection issue, I've tried sniping some guys that twitch left and right. For the longer shots i use the Krag. Closer i use the Lee. It could also be you are to close to objects. I just did a match where it shows i am above the rock, but my buddy told me i was halfway through it.

    My problem is that I hold Y down for 5 or 10 sec but it doesn't change. It just stays on 60m.

    I think you have to have the specialization unlocked which allows you to re-zero your weapon. I don’t think that they all are able to do this by default.

    Thanks for all the advice. I've got it sorted.
    And yes zeroing is nowhere near as effective on bfv as it is on previous ones.

    Tells you in game in one of their hints during the loading screen, that long range sniping is ineffective due to the drag on the bullets. I haven’t seen any damage drop models yet so I’m guessing that’s a big part of the “four shots to the head” problem.
