    Scope is a Nikon 4-12 with BDC reticle. Rifle is sighted for 200 and in this case I used the ballistic table to dial up around 15 clicks but really only needed to dial up probably 12.

    To answer the question, it was dialed up to 12x at the time.

    My deer rifle is a Marlin 336. It shoots a 2" group at 100 with cheap factory but my hand loads can do under 1"

    The saying "aim small miss small" really does apply to sights and eyes. My eyes are getting older so open iron sights are going to give me a 4" group at 100 but the higher the magnification the more precisely and consistently you can maintain a point of aim.

    I sight in my 30-30 at 100 yards on 9x but then dial it down to the lowest when hunting so it's quicker to get a sight picture and I can see more.

    I’m 2” high at 100 yards. Using handloads, I get .75” accuracy. Rifle is a Browning single shot 30.06. Scope is a Leupold Vari-X 3 2.5 X 10.

    Our gun club is building a 200 yard range. I’m looking forward to trying it out.

    I always do the following.

    Box of 20...

    5 shots at 50M to get decent zero on paper.
    5-10 shots at 100M to get rifle grouped.
    Back to 50 and take 5, in different positions, but not on bench. Offhand, kneeling, sitting etc.

    Lots of guys can group at 100M, but when they get in the field they forget the actual skill of shooting.
    "Camo" is perfectly acceptable as a favorite colour.
