I am rifle hunting for really the first time after muzz hunting for the last 10 years.  I am looking for help in getting my gun sighted in.  I will be shooting a 300 win mag, and have a zeiss conquest scope.  When I bought the scope I had it bore sighted and now need help fine tuning.  I will most likely be shooting 180 grain Barnes triple shock X bullets.

 

I am not sure if I want to be zeroed in at 200 or 300 yards.  Your help will be greatly appreciated.  I have heard several different ways to do this but, not sure if any are right.  One was to site in at 30 years and that would put you dead on at 300 yards and about 5 inches high and 100 yards.  Not sure if that makes sense or not.  So how do you all do it?  Thanks!!!

It depends on your rifle.  But a general rule of thumb for my rifles has been two inches high at 100 yards will take care of me out to 300 yards.
