300 yards: Go 3 MOA up from the 200 yard zero
400 yards: Go 5 MOA up from the 300 yard zero
Note: I said MOA (Minute of Angle) not clicks. Some rifles have 1 MOA clicks, some have ½ MOA clicks and others have ¼ MOA clicks.
This will get the bullet impact on paper. Shooters will have 2 shots for sighters before each yard line. This will allow for fine-tuning of the zero on the rifle. Be sure to have a good 100 yard zero before arriving at the range for this tournament.
