Hi, I have a Bushmaster Varminter and an Elite 4200 6-24 mil dot reticle scope. What range is best to sight this in for. Most of my shooting will be between 100 and 200 yards but may go out to 300 as well. Thanks, Max

Most long range shooters zero their rifles at 100 yards, then use a come-up chart like this (see below) and crank in their come-ups for the range needed.

Here are the come-ups in minutes for the 77grn. SMK out of the CR6724 24" rifle:
100 - zero
200 - 1 1/2 min
300 - 3 3/4 min
350 - 4 min
400 - 5 1/2 min
450 - 7 1/2 min
500 - 9 1/4 min
550 - 11 1/2 min
600 - 12 3/4 min
700 - 17 3/4 min
800 - 23 min
900 - no target
1000 - 35 1/2 min
