    1) On the rear sight, crank it down to the '3' (should be the lowest setting). Now move it one click UP from that position.
    2) center the rear sight
    3) using the SMALLER opening in the flip sight (assuming you have a small and large one), rotate the front sight untill you are on the correct horizontal plane at 25 yards.
    4) repeat for left/right on the rear sight.
    repeat 3 and 4 as needed.
    5) Now, click the rear sight DOWN to 3 (should be ONLY one click), and you will be on target at 300 yards. You can then use the rear sight to adjust for distance. using the larger, 0-200 yard apurture will move your POI SLIGHTLY relative to your aim, because it rotates on the same threads that adjust windage.

    Hope that helps :o

    Set the rear sight to "0" and zero in at 50 yards? That's what I would do. You'll need to figure out how much each elevation adjustment of the rear sight affects point of impact at 50 yards and translate that into distances 300 yards away. Once you figure that out, I'd mark the distances off on your A2. I don't have any idea what 0, 5, 10, 15, 20 would denote.

    I wish I could find that bullet drop chart for 5.56. It would help you to know how much you need to compensate for.
