Yes but what are you then hitting at 25,or 50 yards after sighting your gun dead on at 200 yards?Betting your hitting very high at 25 or 50 yards.

It very much depends on what your shooting

a 30-30 with a round nose bullet will probably be fairly high at 50 to hit 200 but then you really shouldn't shoot that far with a 30-30

a 308 with a 180gr bullet and scope 2 inches above the bore it is actually 3/4 of an inch high at 50 on a 200 yard zero and 1/2 inch low at 25 yards on a 200 yard zero as your still on your way up

at about 125 yards your as high as your going to go around 2 1/4 inches then you start falling back so that zero at 200 and everything is down hill form there.

it is an arch , no round is flat they all have an arch it is if you take advantage of it or not.

within an inch of zero at those close distances is less than your likely to wiggle standing and larger than minute of deer heart.


with a 30-30 and 170gr core locks you looking more like 1/4 inch highs at 25 yards 2 inches high at 50, 4 inches high at 125 yards and then you start to fall on 200 yard zero a 30-30 with a round nose bullet just really isn't a great 200 yard choice

basically everything is an arch up to at least meet the scope the scope points at the target , the barrel angles up at the scope so that the arc of the bullet passes at least up to and usually just a little above the sighting plane

Oh as far as accuracy, some has to be better than others, my savage 99 won't do better than 1.5" at 100 yards, my custom rigs do better, some much better.
this is 3 shots out of my Ray Romain built rem. 700 chambered 6.5 gibbs, at a lazer ranged 752 yaards. had a 1.5 mph LtoR breeze.

Many here say they're good after 2 shots at 100

Then whine when they miss a deer at 200

one. thing I will not do, is hunt with a rifle I do not have 100% confidence in, it may only shoot a 1.5" group but it had better hit somewhere in 1.5" or I will not. hunt with it!

so from a bench if you can make a 2 inch group at 200 yards great , what can you do sitting , standing, kneeling , prone how fast can you get into those positions



These days it's not a problem to get into a good rifle shooting position; it's the getting back up frown

For many years I carried the rifle to the coyote stand and once killed 22 straight without a get away. Now at 69 years old my partner has relegated me to the shotgun. This is the formula. > the age < the accuracy.
