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 www.biggamehunter.com 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.

Just put in what you want and it'll put out any info you want.
