If you want to leave it at 200 that's fine. But before you do any adjusting check the zero. If your zero is off 1 moa all your dial ups will be too.

If you are hitting high it is because your program has a velocity that is too low. As you raise the velocity in the program it will tell you to dial less moa.

What is one MOA at 200 yards one click on my NF scope or 4 clicks ? Sorry for the dumb question . I use to always zero at 100 yards but folks on here told me to find a load that groups better at atleast 200 yards . I am confident that I can woller one ragged hole at 100 Do you shoot 3 shot groups or 5 shot groups? Thanks

1 moa at 200 yards is 2 inches. So 4 clicks (on a .25 moa NXS) will move your point of impact 2"

I shoot 3 shot groups.

I will take some pics the next time out at 100 yards that way you can tell me if I am zeroed good enough (not trying to sound smart) Its always hard to tell when reading texts so just clarifying . Thank you broz for your help and being patient with me
