All the rage now is long distance shooting. But Short range shooting offers you a whole different set of problems and variables. I classify short range shooting at anything under 200 yards. 200 yards may be a long way to be shooting for some and for other it may just be a drop in the bucket. Like do you hold over or under for a shot at 25 yards with sighted for 100 yards? Do you need a boat tail bullet for shooting 200 yards or less? How do I sight my rifle in for shooting at targets that may present at 10, 25, 50 100 and 200 yards? How big is too big for scopes and optics? Do you even need optics at short ranges? Dose the height of the sights over the bore come into affect at short range? Do I need a long barrel for short range and how short is too short? I would like to discuss these in this thread.
