Zero Question

Newby question. My dad and I are just getting into long range shooting. My dad had his rifle sighted in at 100 yards. They sighted it in 3 inches high.

He is shooting a 300 RUM with 180 SST's at 3485 fps. I wanted to find out what his zero would be because we are going shooting in the morning and I want to play with it a bit.

I looked on the Hornady site and according to their calculator this round would drop 2.8 inches at 225 yards if it were sighted in for a 100.

So at 3 inches would the zero be 225?

Re: Zero Question

I never subscribed to the PBR zeroing bit. Your numbers sound about right, however, if you are going shooting tomorrow why not put it on paper and find out?

Re: Zero Question

His true zero with that set up should be about 225 to 250.
