The scope is mounted above the barrel, and your line of sight will not converge with the line of the bore for probably thirty yards or so, so when you're doing your rangework
, be sure to learn where that rifle shoots at ten metres as well.
Coupled with Zeiss, the Blaser event was short and packed, with both companies showing us their new products, then taking us out for a round-robin of rangework
. Several configurations of Zeiss-equipped Blasers were used at a variety of targets: steel at short and long range; groups at 100, 200 and 300 yards; a wonderful running boar target.
Typical of my rangework
, I ran the Glock off of Dog-Gone-Good sandbags with three-inch Birchwood Casey Shoot-N-See targets rolling into place at 25 yards.

While the chart suggests that there is 100 fps between the loads, this rangework
was spread over several weeks (gotta go fishing, you know), and the temperature changes around here.
