Default Help me...what does my bullet do?

If I sight in my .243 at 2 inches high at 25 yards, where will it be at 100 yards? Also, is it the same for my .270?

You need to look at your particular bullet's ballistics table.

It will most likely be a fudge higher if it's like mine. But unless yOu shoot it, it's hard to say.

Should make it hit very near the crosshairs at 25 yds.
That should be about 2 inches high at 100 yds.
2 inches high at 25 yards is 8 moa higher than that.
Or about 10 inches high at 100.

Well, that would explain why my daughter missed a deer yesterday. I was in a hurry to sight in her rifle because I had to put a new scope on the .243. I thought if I sighted it in 2" high at 25 yards it would be right on at 200 yards. Not sure what bullet I have her shooting, but it is a regular load, nothing fancy. For the record, she swore up and down she was right on the front shoulder. Actually makes me feel good that i was the one who screwed up.

So to sight in at 25 yards, what should I be hitting?

And before anyone says it...yes, I'm an idiot for thinking it was a good idea to sight it like i did. I got in a hurry and didn't think it all the way through.
