This may have been asked a couple of times, but what setting should the Hario Skerton be set on, specifically with a V60? I've been having trouble with the grind size as of late. I've been using at about 1 rev. from 0 if that's any help.

I can tell you 1 full revolution is in french press territory.  I don't own a V60 (Yet..). Gonna buy a few for a pour over bar I built :P.  I currently use a 5 hole basket so it's also got fast flow like the V60.  I use notch 5th from "0 point" 4th if one wants a stronger brew with 18:1 brew ratio.  20 g coffee to 240 g hot water.

This image may help you.  If you aren't happy you can mod the Skerton to stepless for better calibration. Have a read here

Still trying to perfect this myself. I just sort of stopped experimenting when my total brew time was right around 2:45, I think right around ~1 turn. That image above is very helpful.

Is this based on starting from the 0 (tightest)?

Yes.  Close the burrs completely with notch "0" parallel to one of the flat sides of the shaft.

BTW with the stepless mod in case anyone else reading this has done it dialing works the same but looking at it like time on a clock. 12 counterclockwise to 6  is espresso territory, 6 - 3 is general drip territory and 3 beyond is press territory.
