Re: 100 yd zero?
Hello Jon, all your drop charts are based on and referanced to the initial 100yd zero ie. 24.5moa up = 700yd zero with my 416wby and a 400gn XLC at 2550fps at +50degF. I understand your question, and yes you could and might need to carry in the field zeroed at 2 or 300yds BUT your elevation dial should indicate how far past your 100yd zero you are, weather its 2moa and on a 200yd zero or 4moa and on a 300yd zero and so on. My rifle is carried on 2.25moa for 200yds in the woods and short range under 300yds, when I'm on the hill it doesn't much matter, my rangefinder and drop chart tell me where I need to be and that takes about 10 or 15 seconds in all and I'm settling in for the shot.
