I just mounted my Bushnell on a set of Burris Tactical rings & bases on my Savage 308.
Now, I know its not exact, but I want to boresight the rifle before going to the range. I dont have a laser and I really dont want one, so I'll be looking thru the barrel to get them pointed in the same general area enough to at least get it on paper @ 25yds.
 
Question is, how far away do I place the target doing it the "old fashioned method"?

I did that a couple weekends ago (the look down the barrel thing) at 100 yards and was within 6 inches of the bulls eye with both rifles.  It works pretty well.

My eyes aren't as good as STs so I bore sight at 25 yds then move out to 100.

I also use the 100 yard method.  I think it helps to have the target further away.
