using the factory buckhorns and a 150 gr jhp Winchester x can I zero at 25 dead on to be 2-3 high at 100 and 0at 150? this is what I am reading but I was wondering if anyone can give me some insight

edit: also i want to throw out there that im not looking for sub moa accuracy.. my eyes probablyt wouldnt let me even make a 150 yard shot and almost everything will be within a hundred (critters and such)

Depending on sight height, the rule of thumb that says "zero at 25 yards = 2-3" high at 100 yards" will usually be close. But heed this -- until you shoot it at 100 yards you really won't know where you're hitting at that range. Dead-on at 25 could be several inches high/low/left/right at 100, so zero at 25 then take your first opportunity to try it at 100 .
