Sighting 308

ok I've got my new 700 rem and it's a 308 with a 3x10 40mm
scope mounted. Question to those that may know-at 25yards
when I sight it in, what should my point of impact on target be? Dead on zero or a little high. the longest shot for me would be 200yards and most shots will be under 100yards. Any pointers would be of help

    Factory ammo 150grain Rem i'm told that 165grain tear meat up. What I'm told. I know my 30-06 165grain did, so I guess it's true. Not much into hand loads at this time. Maybe in future

    Sight in 1/2 to 3/4 in. low at 25 yards, should put you with in an inch or so at 100.

    Re: Sighting 308

    Using the ballistics data on the remington web site, and assuming a scope height of 1.5 inches above the bore, I have calculated the following 25 yard drop for a 100 yard zero


    Premier Scirocco Bonded .308 150gr Bullet Plots 0.69 Inches Low at 25 Yards

    Premier Core-Lokt Ultra .308 150gr Bullet Plots 0.68 Inches Low at 25 Yards

    Remington Express .308 150gr Bullet Plots 0.68 Inches Low at 25 Yards

    No practical difference between them.
