Re: rezeroing scope


I typed a wrong zero yargage for you. As I stated at the start, it was a 250 yard zero not a 100 yard zero as, I'm so use to typing for most of my charts and for those that want me to run theirs.

True the 160gr at 3400FPS is within 127 FP of energy at 500 yards and 157 FP at 600 yards compared to the 220 Gr MK going at 2830 FPS. Point is, the 220 outperforms the smaller bullet as per energy.
At 600 yards the 220 really STARTS to shine and will take over from there on out to 1000 yards and beyond. Another example of the bigger, higher BC bullet doing a bit better job at extended range even though it started out 570 fps slower.

I just ran both bullets out to 1000 yards. No comparison from 500 to 1000 yards. The 220 would be my choice.

I don't believe your scope was designed to do what you want to do without looking at it up close. You should be able to make it work though. If your running out of clicks at 550 or 600 yards, a tapored base or Burrus sight- a-line rings with the inserts will give you more usable clicks in your scope to use it.

True, our programs are only within a click or 2 of each other.

Good Luck and sorry for the misprint on my previous response. It has been changed.
