I did both..no difference at 100 yards...or 75 yards. IF I miss its on me...the rifle shoots true. Deer season (rifle) starts Saturday. I hate hunting in 80 degree temperatures....but I hate not hunting at all even more.

Ok. I'm sighting in my 270 today. My stand is 14 ft tall. Do I really need to sight in from the same height or will level ground do? Thoughts

test it but as downhill has no gravitational effect it should be right on at most hunting distances or up to 200 yards

At steep angles you need to check but 14 foot and out to 100 or 200 I don't see much change. Here is a link to some info on it.

wind charts show that a mere  10mph breeze takes a 308 bullet 10" off-target  at a mere 300m. Winds often gust and lull. So you aim at one side of the guy, the wind gusts or lulls and you miss to the other side. :-)  or it's hot and mirage drifts the image just as much. Or he's head on prone to you and the up and downhill angle makes you miss, or he's dodging, using cover, and you can't gauge either his direction or his speed, you lack hearing protection and you're ducking incoming fire and fragments.

Wind in trees is diffused unless its broadside in an open area in hunting distances of less than 200 yards i would keep my hunting shots 100 to max 150 for so many reasons but mainly flight time, bullet performance, back stop /other hunters safety as bullets can travel 1.5 miles take right angles on ricochets so better to be cautious IMO.

I have shot most all my groups less than a pack of cigarettes at 300 wind rain (lots of that sh*t) sleet or hail including heat waves or mirage effect. it is beyond 300 where in most people start to have a problem mostly because they do not have access to ranges that long and time to practice. friends of mine all come to the same conclusion that most figure if they can hit a pie plate at a hundred it's good to hunt with and that is scary for the animal I mean  :o

Other accuracy is not vetted on the same curve or rules instead of subsistence it is existence and that is a whole different game and the rules are rough to nonexistent.

you had spotter shots and windflags to center that group. group means  nothing if the center of the group is way off the mark, and it can be, easily, in wind or mirage, and there's no real practicing for either one. There's  no standards to apply. wind gusts and mirage floats in varying amounts. animals dont shoot back, either.

given the 80 gr VLD bullet, the 223 AR's have OWNED the 600 yd matches for 20 years now, beating 308 quite consistantly.  But basically, it's dumb as hell to not have suppressor on rifle.  22" 308 and 8" of can results in a bipod only clunk.  14.5" of M4 barrel and 7.5" of can results in a still handy rifle, and it will reach 1/4 mile just fine.

    • sounds like your wearing a 1970s leisure suit, good mention though
    • already do all that my traps are right now live traps damn coons and squirrels are my trouble but since they taste good no problem to big with more taters and gravy. anyone that is not up on self defense or "gun" handling is way behind the 8 ball. it's not that training is not important but there comes a point where your gilding the Lilly and dry firing is the cause of more firearms damage than every other use of a firearm unless one uses a snap cap and if you already know how when and what to shoot it's not time well spent.  Prepping the art of being prepared I am already there all I do ow is back fill and reorder until the flag goes up.  I'm sure I will want some new toy but to be truthful if people can keep their head down 90 days there will be very little to deal with as all the unprepared will have dealt each other out of the game. Cabin fever and doing ninja rolls in the urban jungle scoping out all the stuff you should already have only places you in the cross-hairs of a opportunistic sniper who's spotter will clean you like a chicken for Sunday dinner.  water holes are always a bad place to go to as everyone else will be needing /wanting water. depending on the situation rivers streams and wells may be polluted by the dead since animals will be left to their own roving packs of dogs will add to the otherwise difficult task of roaming around. many a good man has walked up on a spider hole handful of punji sticks leg traps fall traps etc etc etc. its great to be an armchair commando the field test is a bit trickier. I can also see where like many countries in the recent unpleasantness released their zoo critters I know of people that keep large dangerous exotic pets. roaming through homes and commercial centers may lead to some real surprises people are funny that way if they want to punish people that try to steal their sh*t  it may have strings attached ! I already know how to field strip or dress most anything I will encounter that I need or can use if it takes a large vehicle to move better to decommission and move on. piles of goods probably have love apples hidden and some have NO DELAY click bang in a real nasty world there are thousands of ways to meet your end and curiosity kills more than cats. most fields can hold hundreds of people ask any Masai warrior .  Mountains or hills can hold an avalanche of rocks and Switzerland has never been invaded by any army since 1499. Defenses are not always perfect as General Patton stated, that fixed fortifications are monuments to mans stupidity".  Sun Tzu, " The supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting.  My quote is screw em' all but 6 and baptize them in sh*t  or If I follow anyone they are in chains. whoever said it ," if you want a friend get a dog was a deep thinker and knew the frailties of the human condition.  If you see a dog growling at it's own shadow think of me I have trust issues    
    • they'd better be learning hand to hande, working out, gun handling, dryfiring and studying survival subjects on the kindle reader, grinding grain, checking the nets and traps, etc. What makes you "think" that there will BE any leisure time?
    • a lot depends on what the critter has been eating. Rat probably tastes a lot better than squirrel that's been eating hedgeballs.
    • make a world of difference. So does the polypro bag that i put between the "breathable" and heavy-duty mylar bags. The soft armor boxer shorts and vest  help quite a bit  as insulation from the ground as well as padding on hard surfaces.  Now I'm good down to 20f, no problem in the hammock, or on the ground if there's any debris for padding/insulation. If I had better circulation in my legs, or if i'd use a Dakota fire pit to heat rocks and water bottles, i could go 10F colder.  But then need the super shelter and a fire all night, for colder temps.  If have several pits and use them all night to heat rocks, those rocks will warm  you most of the next day, placed under your hammock, or your raised wooden bed. Thus, no smoke for enemies to see. The later afternoons are typically 15F or more warmer than late at night, and you can usually get away with a Dakota pit fire a bit before dusk, since they'd have to try to find you in the dark.  That is, if you've got night sights and night vision. :-)  Anyone moving in that cold is going to crunch snow or frozen twigs. So the guy who's holding still is a lot more likely to be the one who detects the enemy first.
