.44 Rem Mag ballistics question
I just bought an H & R Handi-rifle in .44 Rem Mag. I need some suggestions on how to zero the scope to be in the kill zone on southern whitetails out to
150 yds or so. I'm using 250 gr. Winchester Platinum ammo. I zeroed my Rem .270 BDL about 1" high at 100 yds and I've had good luck withit out to about 200 yds. I've checked several ballistics tables and there is very little agreement between these tables and they make no distinction between handguns and rifles.

Get out and shoot. That's the only real way to do it. Go to a range and shoot until you get it hitting where you want.

Without knowing the velosity and the BC of the bullet all I can do is guess. But if it has the same BC as a 250 Sierra and is moveing at about 1,700 fps. 1 1/2 in. high at 100 will give you about 3 1/2 in. low at 150 yrds. From there it goes down hill pretty fast.
