Default Sighting M92 for 100-yard zero on a 25 yard range?

We have a new local indoor range that allows you to shoot whatever weapons you like, but the longest (rifle) Lane is only 75.

Does anyone have any idea where Id need to sight in a Zastava M92 SBR at 75 for it to hit dead center at 300?

I pulled 678 meters per second for a 123gr FMJ from some notes I had on a YouTuber or maybe Krebs who did chrono testing w a M92. Plug that into the ballistic calculator you use or use the one at ballistic data.org I think. Set it for a 100yd zero and or play around w the numbers it yields w that velocity and load data. Good luck.

The truth is that you can do math and plug numbers all day to maybe get kinda close, but each firearm will shoot a particular load how it's going to shoot it at the end of the day. Especially with 7.62x39. By the time you tracked down the BC for the projectile, actually chronographed it's true velocity average, and figured everything out; it'd be easier to just do some rough estimates and find a range somewhere else to bring 100 rds of whatever ammo, and be confident that your dope is on.

I was gonna sight my M92 in at 100 yards but only really have easy access to 25 yard indoor ranges.......so the conclusion I came to was: Sight in for POA / POI at 25 yards and if the theat is further out, charge them screaming like im in the movie Bravehart until I get about 25 yards away then shoot

I calculate that point of impact should be 5.44 inches high. 123 grain with muzzle velocity at 2227 fps

If you have access to a place with a 25 and 50 yard area, zero at 25 first then zero it at 50. I zero all of my rifles at 50 yards and out to 200 it's dead on. My m92 hits steel at 200 yards on 10" plates all day and I was surprised it did as well. Your 100 yard zero will be dead on as well. I actually broke my steel gong this past weekend with so many hits on my plate. Crazy. But I was more than satisfied hitting nearly 100% at 100 with the Krink.

Use a ballistic calculator.
Enter desired zero (300yds in this case)
Know BC, bullet weight, velocity.
Calculate. Check the graph.
There will be an initial zero at around 21-24yards. Which matches 100yd zero, basically the arch/path going up, then back down to zero again (On my mini draco it's 19 yards for 100yds zero)
Set your target at that distance. Zero it. Done.

14m or 15yd zero for 7.62x39
The factory rear sight on the PAP M92 is for 200m and 400m
21m or 23yd zero for 5.45 and 5.56 for 300m

OP if i can figure out how to launch 300gr subsonic bullet at a target 450m away within +- .5 mils of poa with JUST using ballistic calculator found online and JUST knowing bc of the bullet, im sure you can figure out what to do about your dilemma.

The only truth there is with AK and ammo it uses that people seems to never get into their head is that "GET KINDA CLOSE" is as good as it gets. And in order to achieve that "GET KINDA CLOSE" it will take about a mag or two.
Since he is using M92, for him "GET KINDA CLOSE" is actually "KINDA GET KINDA CLOSE"

LOL
True.

I know the BC sucks, but I would love to see some consistent match 7.62x39 out there for under a buck a bullet. There are more than a few people out there that have DMR set up AK's that would put it to good use, I'm sure.
But "GET KINDA CLOSE" is OK because we can still find ammo for around a quarter a round.
