User freaking error. Loading up to go and realized my sweet girlfriend bought me 180 grain 308 instead of my sighted in 150 grain. I have two 150 grain left... should go the weekend right? ...but what if... Certainly don't want to make a bunch of racket tonight re-sighting. Some of you guys on here really sound like you know your stuff. HELP

Should only take a few shots, my guess it will be at 100 yards 2 in low or 8 clicks if your scope is a 1/4 MOA per click at 100 yards.

Your 100 yard zero will most likely be off. Not a huge margin, but it will be different from the 150's. I would rezero with the new ammo of I were going to hunt with it. Should only take two shots. That's not much racket for a whole bunch of gain.
