I know the answers to this are going to be all over the board…
With a centerfire rifle, who does their initial sighting in at 100 yards and then actually takes the time and effort to then stretch out to 200, 250 and 300 yards to make sure they “know” where their bullet is going to strike during a hunting situation?
I have actually seen some folks to RECOMMEND to other hunters to set the bullet on the paper 1” low at 50 yards – and then they advised that the rifle is “good to go” out to 200 – or even 300 yards. This just seems flat stupid to me.
I had a 165 range to practice on in 2009 and in 2010, I had a 230 yard range. I took advantage then of both of these.
I have a new lease for 2011 and am going to put in a 300 yard range so I can start to see where I am – that far out.
Fess up, Boys… who is doing it right and who is taking shortcuts??
