The core-lokt isnt a bullet that i would be sighting in at 300yards IMO. It performs its magic at closer distance's normally. For long range look at the ballistic silvertip or the accubonds....something along them lines!! Good luck!

P.S.

According to remington's ballistics if your dead on at 200 yards you'll be 2.4 inches high at 100 yards.

If you want I can run that through my balistics calculator? When you say sight in for 300yds, you want it to hit at zero there? I suspect the MRT will be fairly high like that. I like to zero hunting rifles with MPBR at a 6" target. Then the farthest the bullet will rise above line of sight is 3" and you'll have a MPBR where the bullet falls 3" below lone of sight.

With that bullet shooting remington factory core-lokts 180gr. a dead center zero at 300 yds requires you to sight in at +5.11" high at 100 yds.
