Then you have a very flat shooting rifle.

I sight my 7mmstw in to be 2-3/4" high at 100 yards.

I have my '06 1.5inches high at 100yrds. Which makes me dead on at 175yrd and about 7 inches low at 300yrds
150gr hornady interbond

that is all I need to know as I don't need to shoot past that distance.

Normally you would need to sight in 1-1/2" highor more at 100 yards with both of those cartridges to be dead on at 200 yards.

.277? What's that? Does he mean a type of 7mm?
