Sighting in my 243

Well me and a friend sighted in my 243 a few days ago and it was perfect at 50 yards 3 inches high like i like it shootin under .25 of an inch groups but then we went to 100 yards and it wemt from 3 inches high to 8 inches high why we dont know. What do you guys think about this.

Is this reproducible? Meaning you start all over do 3" at 50yds and get 8" at 100 yds consistently?

Sighting in for 3" at 50yds is definitely going to put you higher at 100, but 8" seems way too high.

I would have guessed an additional 1" or 2" at 100 yards at the most when sighted in for 3" at 50yds.

You may want to sight in at 3" at 100 yards this will put you somewhere between 1" - 2" at 50 yards, assuming the gun and scope are functioning properly.

Might want to try some different ammo too. If your at or near a max load the behavior will be more erratic.
