shooting to high

Im trying to sight in a new omega it is constantly shooting high.I tried shooting at 25 yards it was about 16 inches high. I moved the rear sight down as low as it will go and at 100 yds it is still 11 inches high.Ive tried to burry the front sight as low in the back sight as I can and still high. Wondering if someone had any ideas on how to fix this problem. Thanks Jim

I don't shoot in-lines but I'm guessing you're shooting a light jacketed bullet and sabot? Might try a big heavy lead conical...I'm betting that would get you on target.

Yeps......figured such....otherwise would have suggested filing down the front sight a bit to drop your point of impact.
