Just curious how many of y'all that don't have target turrets on your scope sight in your rifles high at 100 yards? I sight mine in at 3 inches high at 100

3 inches seems like a lot but I used to do 1 inch high. I just zero them all at 100 now and adjust if I need to.

When I aim in the shoulder I end up with a high shoulder shot and drop them

Most of my shots on deer with our blind setups will be anywhere from 85-110 yards.

I know I'm a bad person because of it, but I take neck/head shots on occasion grin , especially on hogs. I sight my gun in on the bulls eye at 100 yards so I don't have to do any guessing.
If I'm going to be shooting far enough that I need to worry about drop I will just aim a little high. One of my guns has turrets so its always zeroed at 100.

My 300yd zero puts me around 3" at 100, little higher at 200 (remember that part of it).

Depends on the shooting situation. In mine it leaves guess work.

Sight in at 100, if you know your rifle and bullet ballistics good to go. Don't need turrents if sighted in properly except for long distances.

I trust my ummmm "feel" more than I do turrets and clicks.
Dead on at 100 ish. Sometimes 50 depending on where I get to zero.
That being said, most of my rifle shots are within bow range here in east Texas.

+1

I like to sight mine dead on at 200 yds. If I don't have access to a 200 yd range and have to use a 100 yd range I site in 2" high at 100 yds. That will get me to 275 yds or so with no hold over if using a flat shooting caliber.
