Thursday's Ballistics for Beginners Useful Fact :
| ||Where is the center of the group on the right? Somewhere between target center and about and inch high and right I suppose. The rifle is actually perfectly sighted on the center, but you would have to fire more shots to be sure. |
When you zero your rifle you shoot a group and guess where the center of the group is. If you are off by an inch at 100 yards, you are off by more than 3" at 300 yards. So if you want to hit with your first shot at 300 yards, you are going to have to fire 7 or 8 cold shots for your zero. So bring a good book :).
