    Jump on one of the bullet drop programs and enter your information (BC, elecation, temp, humidity, etc) where you live. Then change the elevation and temp and it will give you an idea of how different the bullet will fly where you will be hunting. As has been said earlier if you are shooing up to 200-300 yards it probably won't make a big difference.

    I've put a few animals in the freezer that wished I overthought shooting at them. I live in NJ and shoot here all the time and never worried about it. I shoot a Remington 7mm SAUM sighted 3 1/2 inches high at 100yds. I put it on them and shoot. My farthest shot was a doe antelope I took at 330yds

    I agree with these folks, just get it sighted in and go hunting. Absolutely nothing wrong with being sighted in for 200 yards, but for me personally I like to have my rifles sighted in at 250 yards. I've always done it that way and I know my drop figures for up to 500 yards. Either way much success to you.
