Just looking for some tips and opinions on sighting in multiple power rifle scopes. Do you first sight it in on the lowest magnification then check it against the highest? or visa versa? or?? I have a Burris Signature series 6-24x on my T/C Encore .223 and can't seem to be 100% pleased with my results.
I figure (I may be wrong too) that the .223 round should not have a significant (more than 4-5") drop from 100 yds to 300 yds when sighted in 2" high at 100. I'm too lazy to research the specs on the round but I am shooting high quality, ballistic tip ammo (55gr. Hornady TAP) so consistency shouldn't be a problem.
Recently I was at the range and had the situation described above. Sighted in about 2" high at 100 (scope at 12x) then moved out to 300 (scope now at 24x) and couldn't hit 8 1/2 x 11" paper target. Figured I was low so I aimed at top of 6" black center and still no holes. I didn't have a clean surrounding target and forgot the butcher paper so I'm not exactly sure where I was hitting..... I was using a good rifle rest so aimpoint is not in question.
Any advice other than using a BIG clean target at 300?
