I can tell you're good at this, too.

My favorite kentucky windage (holding off) was the following:

Set the scope for 700 yards kill.

Then remember belly, balls, knees, feet, knees, balls, belly.

Belly = for a 600 yds shot or 50 yards shot.

Balls = for a 500 yds shot or 100 yds shot.

Knees = for a 400 yds shot or 200 yds shot.

Feet = for a 350 yds shot.

This accounts for the entire arc of a long range sniper shot on a military chest shot.

On a deer, most hunters just sight in for 250 yds and shoot flat anywhere from 0 to 400 yards.
I have no idea what your talking about. You busted on some for not using inches instead of mills but this makes no sense to layman.

Do you think i can make this shot without re sighting my gun? i really don't wont to make any noise in this hunting area right now.
I sight my 270 for an inch or so high at 100 yards, I have knocked down deer as close as 10 yards shooting center mass on the shoulder.

The closer to the target you are, the less the settings on your scope make a difference. At 10 yards your scope could be sighted for 250-500 yards and still hit center mass.

The answer to your question is 'yes' BUT if your gun is the 243 Win, PLEASE only use heavy (95 to 105 gr) tough bullets for deer!
