How much POI change would there be switching from a 250 grain sabot to 290 grain sabot at 100 yards?

I want to go hunting Friday morning and I got the wrong weight bullets. The 250 grain are about an inch high at 100 yards. If I can avoid going to the range that would be great.

True

I looked at an enclosed ballistic table that came with sabots. It looks like less than an inch at 100 yards.

From 0-100 yrds, it shouldnt matter. Aiming at the heart/lung area gives you an 8-10 inch kill zone. So aim as you normally would. Just sight in properly the first chance you get, obviously, so you know.
