If I have one sighted in at 25 yrds to where the group is punching the same hole, I am shooting a encore with 100 grains of triple 7 with t/c 250grain shockwave bullet, Where do you think it will hit at 100 yrds? Plus or minus in inches from the bullseye?

I've heard if zero at 25 it will be zero at 100 but I have no experience to say for sure.

Mine is +1 at 50 and -.5 at 100. That's 100g of blackthorn and 250barnes tmz

3 foot low...

I would not in good conscience take a shot unless I had fired my gun enough at that distance to think the odds of making a killing shot were greatly in my favor. If it's out of range, and you can't sneak closer let it pass.

Head to the range and find out for sure where it'll hit.

Totally depends on how far center of muzzle to center of scope is and what bullet drop is at 100yrds.

I would never guess! Go shoot it so you will know what's going on.

I sight in my rifles at 25 yards and have noticed little/no difference in their impact at 100 yards.
