Bear vs 300 RUM

This week I'm hooking up with a guide to hunt Black bear with hounds.He said I might shoot as close as 20 yds are 200yds.So I sighted my rifle in for dead on at 100yds with Nosler 200gr Accubonds moving at solid 3,200 FPS. So my question is, is my bullet on the rise at 100yds? I'm I making a mistake? I'm only going Bear hunting once this year. : [img]images/icons/cool.gif[/img]
How does it profit a man if he gains the whole world but loses his soul?

    With the vel posted you should be in the kill zone out past 200yds.

    The Accubond @ 3200 FPS / 100 yd zero will only drop 2 - 2.5 inches @ 200 yards, depending on scope height. Good luck.
