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.

    • Here is why I love Paul Joseph Watson Toxic masculinity versus mommy's boys ? So your a woman and have a child with a appendage we can't call it a wiener anymore, do you really want a 30 something man living in your basement and crying on your shoulder all the time ? Gillette has a commercial that is so offensive and ridiculous that any man who ever buys a product from them need to be castrated. I have shaved with a straight razor since I started growing whiskers and I don't use soap foam or gel just water, I don't see where I need to have as much or more room than my female cohabitant for beauty supplies ! And my other hero Jordan Peterson Here is another good video from Tomi
    • Animals are complicated and yes I can see where any animal could be a support animal, here is the kicker all animals are unpredictable and like people have good days and bad days. So let me just say I'll pass on meeting  wally, I may piss him off because I know I have eaten one of his family members and Wally may not like that. besides people have been attacked by their pets like mice rats gerbils cats and dogs much less anything with more teeth. Emotional support alligator                
    • Another fine mess,  Asteroids are smacking Earth twice as often as before, and that reminds me of Revelation 8:10- 12 -- 10 Then the third angel sounded his trumpet, and a great star burning like a torch fell from heaven and landed on a third of the rivers and on the springs of water. 11 The name of the star is Wormwood. A third of the waters turned bitter like wormwood oil, and many people died from the bitter waters. 12 Then the fourth angel sounded his trumpet, and a third of the sun and moon and stars were struck. A third of the stars were darkened, a third of the day. I'm not saying that this event is close but who knows what or how many are the precursors to this event, if it is like a woman in labor as the Biblical narrative describes it will increase exponentially until the end, that in the face of all the increases of fire, flood, famine,earthquakes and astrological events reminds me of Luke 21:26 men’s hearts failing them from fear and the expectation of those things which are coming on the earth, for the powers of the heavens will be shaken. as recently as a few years ago a large asteroid passed between the earth and the moon or as they call it a near miss, and NASA or anyone else spotted it before it was right on top of us, so for all of you who think science and technology can save us until we build a solar sail or anchoring rockets to attach to space threats it just is going to be a bad day for some of us IMO.
    • Lmao Protests, a punch thrown and provocative jokes as Louis C.K. performs in San Jose. Louis C.K. became one of the biggest stories in the #metoo movement in 2017, after he was accused of sexual misconduct, and admitted to masturbating in front of female comics. After stepping away from the spotlight, he began performing again in New York last year, generating more controversy for his comedy, including a set in late December that appeared to mock survivors of the Parkland, Fla., school shooting. The protest was organized by Enough is Enough Voter Project. Micheal Dauber, one of the protestors pointed out that San Jose Improv has acts booked through May, with no female headliners listed, “That speaks volumes,” Dauber said. Louis CK is not that funny to make a living off comedy he is just another jerk  IMO
    • The earthquake portion of the leading quotation of this post is working overtime. A micro earthquake struck early this morning in Malibu, where residents are already dealing with heavy rainfall and mudslides Thursday. A 2.8 earthquake was reported at 12:35 a.m. at a depth of just over one mile, with an epicenter just a few miles inland from Point Dume, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. For the second morning in a row, East Bay residents were jolted out of bed by an earthquake.  Wednesday morning's 3.4-magnitude quake hit at 4:42 a.m. Three small aftershocks followed: a 1.9-magnitude at 4:45 a.m., a 2.0 at 4:48 a.m., and a 1.1 at 8:52 a.m, centered near Piedmont and the Oakland hills along the Hayward Fault. The USGS pinpointed the epicenter near the intersection State Route 24 and Tunnel Road.
