sighting in 30-06

4 posts in this topic

have I been wrong?

I have sighted in my .06 at two inches high at 100 yards for dead center on a 300 yard shot.

I shoot 180 grain remington.

Am i close -- never thought about it till tonight.

I would take a 200 yard shot to see where you are at. I would guess at 200 you are at zero plus a little maybe. At 300, maybe a few inches low.

Dahitman, I just checked the ballistics for you on Federals HSOforum and it says that a Nosler Accubond 180gr is sighted in at 2 inces high at 100 you will be dead on at 200 and 8.3 inches low at 300yds that is quite a drop once you get past 200yds and the Nosler Accubond bullet is one of the flatest shooting bullets out there if not the flatest. If this isnt your bullet go to www.federalpremium.com and click on rifle in upper right corner and then in upper right pick your caliber and then if you want you can compare ballistics between different loads and bullet types. Hope this helps

    • Really??? Catfish is my favorite fish.
    • I suspect you haven't visited this year or seen the reports.     And, for the record, I didn't say I was catching "tons" on Mille Lacs, but it was the best lake I've visited in the last two years.  And it wasn't even close.    
    • I think Schells is Minnesota's oldest brewer, so they must be doing something right.   I know some guys from New Ulm, and they all drink Schells.   That's how I got turned onto it in the first place.  Never got burned out on it, though..
    • Sink or swim? I am sure that some of you have heard that if you put seeds in water the ones that sink are better then the ones that float. I have heard this from the old guys but I have never tried it myself. Well I found myself with some radish seeds and I decided to pour them into a cup of water and sure enough about half sunk to the bottom while the rest floated. I got out a bowl and filled it with coconut husk planting mix and put the floaters on one side and the sinkers on the other. I am now waiting to see what side comes up first or if both sides will come up at the same time.   Any comments? Has anyone else heard of this and does anyone check their seeds before planting?
    • Maybe he's just hungry............    
    • Catfish!! I haven't had that in about ten years! Dang, that looks good! 
    • All day long you sit here and demand answers from everyone else but you never answer anyone else's questions. I wonder why that is?    
    • I would guess even Fletcher would say Stall has passed all expectations. I will give credit to Fletcher for building this team from absolute zero, we had almost no skill or prospects when he took over,  sure it took longer than we wanted but right now it is worth it. No doubt luck can play a roll, most GM's don't have a Suter, Parise, Stall & BB fall into their lap but quality drafting and development are also paying big dividends right now. We also have a lot of high end prospects that can fill in for the vets in the coming years. A cup is still a long ways away but this year is probably the best NHL team the state has ever seen.
    • Tonight I made some baked Cajun catfish fillets and Home-made macaroni and cheese. Needless to say, I was the hero of the day!
