 Quick 308 sight question...

I gotta haul ass to sight in 2 rifles before work. I got about an hour to do it. I have 2 different rounds in using for each gun. All I got is a 100 yard range to work with and I will be shooting out to 200 yards.

My Hornady 165gr boat tail match custom ammo says at a 100 yards it should be 2" high to be zeroed at 200 yards so I am sighting for that.

The other round is a 150gr soft point that is 2750 FPS. Where would it be at 50 and a 100 yards relative to my eventual 200 yard shot?

I just gotta get this done before this weekend and I don't wanna be all over the place.

Thanks in advance guys...I lurk at work and can't post. This is the first time I've posted in over a year.

I would check out they have a balistic chart you can get the data from. you enter the round info and it will give you the amount of drop for a given distance. i use hornady 168 match and 2" high is right

I have a similar situation in that I have practice ammo (168 gr Hornady A-Max) and hunting ammunition (Federal Premium 165 gr Nosler solid base) for my Remington 308 700. I sighted the rifle in at 50 yards which results in a 200 yard zero; 2" high at 100. Fortunately for me, the practice ammo shoots within .5 inch of the hunting ammo. So, my $.02 worth, site in 2 " high at 100 yards with the hunting ammo and then document where the practice ammo shoots in relationship to that zero. Then go have fun.
