This should not pose to much of a problem as long as you have the caliber of the bullet,the muzzle velocity, and the BC (ballistic coeffiecent).If you are shooting factory ammo all this info and bullet drop tables can be found on the back of the ammo box in some cases.If this is not listed then you will need to shoot your ammo over a bullet chronograph and find out the muzzle velocity of the bullet in feet per second (FPS).This will determine the amount of hold over at 100yrds so the bullet will impact at point of aim at 200yrds.If you are willing to give me the cartridge you are shooting and bullet weight,I have the bullet tables to tell you how high to place the bullet at 100yrds so you have a dead on impact at 200yrds.

How far can you shoot an m16 rifle without a scope?

The bullet will go just as far regardless of what sight you're using. But taking aim will get harder and harder w/o a scope. 300 yards should be doable but Marines are trained to hit targets at 500 yards, it just depends on experience.

How do you sight in a gun scope?

Do an internet search on "rifle scope sighting procedures"ANS2:Sight in at 25 yards for most centerfire rifles. If you have a bolt action, sandbag the rifle and pull the bolt then sight through the barrel at the target.Take off the scope's turret caps and dial the scope in to where the cross-hairs in the scope are centered on the target.Replace the bolt and fire a round at the target.Read the scope manual to see how many inches one click of the adjustment screw is worth and make that adjustment. Some people prefer to do elevation then windage, I like to do both simultaneously since it saves ammo.Repeat until you are consistently hitting the target.Replace your scope turret caps.Your rifle will now be sighted in for 25 yards and 100 yards.

How do I sight in my rifle scope using a 100 yard distance to find out where I need to shoot for a 200 yard zero. I am using PPU ammo 243 Winchester 100 grain cartridge?

Assuming that you are using a scope, which places your line of sight higher above the barrel, at 100 yards the bullet should hit 1.6 inches ABOVE your aiming point. At 200 yards it will have dropped to the aiming point. At 250 yards it will hit about 3 inches BELOW your aim point. That is for a 100 grain .243. Other bullet weights will, of course, have a different path. Great deer cartridge. Shoot safe, shoot often.

How do you sight in a rifle with a scope?

Start at 25 yards. From a stable shooting position (benchrest, prone) fire 3 shots at the target. Determine where the bullets hit- high, low, left, right. The scope will have adjusting knobs under the two caps at the center of the scope. Turn the knobs to move the strike of the bullet in the directions indicated on the knobs. After adjusting scope, refire, and adjust again as needed. Once zeroes at 25 yards, move to 50 yards, repeat. For a .22 rifle, 50 yards is standard zero. For larger rifles, after zeroing at 50, move to 100 yards. Be sure to replace the adjustment knob caps when zeroed. If you are hunting in an area where shots longer than 100 yards are common, you might want to consider sighting your rifle in at 200-400 yards depending on the rifle and its maximum effective range. I owned a Ruger model 77 seven mag. fitted with a Tasco World Class 3x9x50mm scope that I consistently sighted in at 250 yards because I hunted on a farm where I could see 3/4 of mile in three directions. Longer range sighting is problematic, and may not be much more effective.

100 yards is the most effective distance to sight in primarily. However, if you know the distance your rifle will be performing at, then sight in as close to that as you can.

For regular white tail hunting, 100 yards is perfect.
