What would it mean at 100 or 200?? I look through a Weaver 40/44/scope with the balistic x reticle. Shooting 43gn IMR sr 4759 with 250gr hornady xtp.







Thanks for any help fellas!

Thanks for the help. I clicked the elevation knob 8 clicks up (1 click = 1/4" at 100 yards [so i figure that 1 click = 1/8" adjustment at 50 yards] <-- someone please elaborate). So maybe this has it right on at 100. Either or, I don't guess an inch matter really that much on a deer at 100 yards.

Good shooting. If it were me, I would shoot it at 100 and 200 to see what it is really doing, and forget what others think it might be doing. What sabots were you using?

That is a lot of left and right for only at 50 yards. Take it to a 100 and fire for effect!
