All you need is a no-shoot and two sheets of high contrast paper:



With irons, it allows you to see if your front sight is too low or too high since you'll see a bunch of white and two arrows if you're holding low, a bunch of white and no arrows if you're high, and two perfect points if you're dead on.


I mount it head-down for a 200 & 300 yard zero. You can vary the dimensions to match your front sight width, 300 yard drop point (if you use a 200 yard zero), or even have the target match your BDC.

If you have a red dot (you shouldn't choose red paper if so) or a prismatic, I have also found that the triangle above the arrows makes a good sight picture as well.

The white area above the two arrows and below the triangle can be occupied by a 2 MOA reticule which fits nicely for a good precise aiming point.










To replace the target, simply cut an hourglass shaped piece of white paper to tape to the front and tape a piece of white paper on the back of the target to cover any holes in the red areas.

I see that you have laid out your triangles precisely with a grid. what are the measurements? it looks to be 1 inch squares, which makes sense whn thinking of MOA.
thanks,

Howdy! In my case, I cut the paper from corner to corner and the grids in the center are 1" each.

I made something similar to this once to shoot iron sights at a distance. It really helps get a center hold on the target.
