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
