    Sighting in question

    Went door knocking and scored a sweet place to sight my rifle in , first farm I tried too ! . There is a race between two paddocks with a large hill to shoot into 100 mts out to 300 mts I'd say. But there is a slight rise probably only 15 mts over 100 this shouldn't make a difference to the zero should it ? . I wouldnt have thought so but would rather ask a gun geek just incase .

    That would be a angle of about 8 degrees I think. Wouldn't think it would make enough difference to miss a deer!

    8.5 degrees 100m up this gradient will give you 98.869m true horizontal distance.

    If shooting far enough to warrant it your ballistic program will allow you to enter your actual sight in range angle and conditions. Otherwise just go shoot stuff
    "Hunting and fishing" fucking over licenced firearms owners since ages ago.
