    Not sure what you are intending to say but projectiles do indeed rise. The barrels are aiming upwards to compensate for the trajectory of the bullet. They cross the same point twice. Depending on the caliber, 25 yards and 100-150 yards, the bullet will impact at the same point from level twice.

    You fire a rifle with the barrel level, the bullet does drop immediately but as we are talking about normal shooting and sighting in, this is not relevant to the discussion.

    It may be a matter of terminology for you, and the projectile will be fired up to reach a further range of course, but nothing rises of its own accord. No matter how high up you point that barrell, that projectile begins dropping upon firing.

    We're definitely not on the same page. As you feel this is not relevant to the conversation, I leave it alone, but I would like you to think about what you just said. We'll agree to disagree.
    The field is yours, sir.

    Think we are just calling horses well horses here the only thing that does not suffer drop is a laser and they do have lasers that can knock things off however your both right A) The projectile does cross the line of sight twice as per illus and bullets do not rise of their own accord they are aimed up to compensate for trajectory.

    But the original OP and a few posts that have been proffered it is feasible to sight in at 25 yards to see where its printing then step it out once you have L-R sorted the elevation can come at greater distances I use 25 for L-R getting it plum dead on as no variables that close besides if you say that at 25 yards you're within 1/4" is ok then at 1000yds then you'll be hitting 2 targets over from your assumed correct 25Yd zero, if not hitting in the next paddock.

    Yup. When our type P/S 1000 yard Diopter system was proofed at Quantico, the first shot was at 25 yards.
