What distance do you plan on sighting in your rifle? 100 yards?

A quick check on the program I use says that with a 123gr FMJ bullet and a velocity of 2330fps (from Wolf ammo data), to be dead on at 100 yards, the zero at 25 yards should be -0.08". So basically, dead on at 25 yards. Adjust your sights (elevation up, windage left) until you are hitting the center of your target.
