Good Yardage to sight in scope

So I have a Remington 597 .22lr that came with a scope, and I have a H&R Ultra Slug gun (12ga) with a Bushnell scope on it that I bought from a NJWW friend. I’d like to eventually take them both to the Clinton WMA rifle range for a day of sighting them both in.

I’m reading lots of conflicting info about what’s the best yardage to sight in each (especially with the .22lr, since the bullet seems to drop significantly).

-The .22lr is so far just for fun at the range, but would love to take it out to PA one day for squirrels or in NJ if someone wants to invite me over to take out some groundhogs on their property (hint hint... anyone offering? Lol)
-The slug gun I’d be using for NJ deer hunting probably around 100yds max is what I’d be comfortable shooting. 
 

I know obviously experimenting with what specific ammo each gun “likes” is important and I’ll continue to do that before I finalize my zero, but I’m curious and just strictly asking about what yardage you guys recommend for each.

Start all zero sightings at 25 yards, then tune to 100. Once you know your H&R is sighted at 100 learn what it will do out to 200 in increments of 25 yards.   Have fun and let us know how you make out.

For hunting guns read about maximum point blank range.this is how I sight my hunting guns. This way you always aim where you want to hit, regardless of distance, to make a kill. The system really works

Pretty interesting.....
