What distance to zero sights on S&W 460?

S&W recommends you zero their 460 handgun @ 200 yards. If I wanted a 200 yard zero, what would be the correct practical yardage at the range to start to zero. Would it be like an AR 50/200 yard zero?

Assume Hornady 200grain ammo for zero.

I'd start at 1-2" high at 100yds. My 8 3/8" S&W XVR will hit 225yd 3" clays if I do my part. What length barrel is your S&W? Are you using factory loads or are you rolling your own? I only roll my own, I'm using the 200gr Hornady FTX in front of 51gr's of H110. So it's doing between 2150fps and 2200fps. It's pretty much a laser out to 200yds.
I use Iron sights only so far, if you are using a model to scope it is just that much easier to zero the 460 in.
I don't know if the AR 50/200 will work with the 460, the revolver shoots flatter out to 200 and is less susceptible to wind....but if you are most familiar with that, it isn't a bad place to start.

I have the 5" barrel model. Just iron sights and off the shelf commercial
Hornady. I knew it was a flat shooter but I thought there would still be some adjustment involved at 200 but maybe not.

Have you shot it yet Cap? Are you going to hunt with it or use it for bear spray?

Wasted,
I shot it yesterday first time. The 460 Round is a beast but it's not unmanageable.
I wouldn't want to have to do a fast follow up shot with a charging griz.
Both hunting and bear spray intended.


45LC feels like a .22 after a few 460's down the pipe.

If it where me I would set the sights dead nuts at 50 yards. That's just my opinion.
