Years ago before my angle eject 30-30 became illicit property of a dimocrap, i had it set for 3 inches high at 100 and iirc it was hitting 3-4 inches low at 200. Need to take that into consideration if shooting at a rabbit or turkeys head, but not so much on deer or 2 legged coyotes.

3 inches high also on 300 Wby, 300 RUM, 270 WBY, 270 WSM and all were about the same amount low at 400 and 500.

My Remington M141 35 has a peep sight. It is zeroed to hit the top of the bead at 100 yards and drops the bullet to the center of the bead at 200. My load is a 200 Gr Round Nose that chronographs at 2065 FPS. Last October I killed a Whitetail at 183 yards with a single shot by holding a "British Hold" and dimply covering it's chest with the bead and squeezing's one off. The hit was centered in the chest and the hunt was over.
The peep sits lower then a scope so the "climb angle to the 1st intersection is at only at 14 yards but I have not found it to be a problem. I align my sights center in the aperture carefully and place the 12:00 of the bead where I want the bullet to go out to about 140 yards. It's not precise, but it well within reason for killing deer. a bit high from 65 to about 125 but not enough to worry about missing even a small deer's chest. At about 155-160 it's dead on the 12:00 of the bead.

At about 175 I hold the same but place the 12:00 a few inches over the desired point of impact. At 180 to about 225 I "bury" the target under the bead. Past 250.... well I don't shoot with that rifle past 250.

So if I has a scope I think I would zero about 3.5" high and then shoot large paper targets at 25 yard increments out to about 250 and just see where the hits are. Lear the rifle and load and you'll do fine.

I really liked it just iron sights. As far as Covid affecting my eyesight, it has blurred my vision. A lot of others who have had it listed that as a side affect, I pray the ones on here that find this so amusing never experience it. At least this thread has brought out some of the real DB’s on this forum, so now I know who they are. 😁Thanks, Robinhedd
Ask here, that is what you mostly will get. So, now you have heard about using the ballistic charts and differing loads, you read what a lot of guys use for zero settings, and you have read some "how to's". What is the best of what you found here?

Sorry about the eye damage - glad you are pushing on. And, for my edification, what is a "DB"?

Yep. my woods rifles are sighted for woods ranges. When you need your bullet to just clear a limb at 30 yards and pass just under another at 60 yards to hit a deer at 80 it's best to keep it close to your sights/crosshairs.
