I have a CVA Optima that shoots very good groups at 100 yards. I'm shooting Barnes TMZ 295 grain sabots with 100 grains of 777. Do you have any guess on the bullet drop at 150 and 200 yards.

If you are 1.8" high at 100 yards you will be around 27" low at 250. Around 8" low at 200. Can't lay my hands on 100 yd chart or get closer for you right now. This is for one sighted at 150 for close to the load you are using.

Absolutely right. Never rely only on the charts.

That is true get out and shoot it. I use charts as a starting place but the range tells you for sure.
