    I have to disagree, Bob. Your point of aim does not change with the size of your target. I assume you aim for the center regardless of the size. If your gun is sighted in at 25 yds. then it should hit the center (assuming the shooter does his part) of the target if is aimed at the center.

    I am NOT aiming at the center, with a six o'clock hold, my point of aim is at the BOTTOM of a circle 6" in diameter. My bullet hits dead center (Well, more or less) of that circle, which is 3" above my line of sight.

    In fact, I bought some Shoot-N-See targets lately that were 2" in diamerter. In order to hit these, I had to stick a 1" dot below my target as an aiming point, as without these, my shots were over the target.

    I say again, and still say, my gun is sighted in for the distance the trajectory crosses my line of sight on the descending leg of the trajectory.

    Don't guess I'm following you, Bob. Are you saying you are aiming 3" below center on a 25 yd. target to get the bullet to hit center? If that's the case, at what range is your pistol zeroed? Somewhere out there it has a zero.

    With a six o'clock hold, sights are aligned, top of my front blade is level with the top of the rear sight, centered in the notch. The 6" diameter bullseye is perched atop my front sight blade. I am actually aiming at the bottom of that circle, and when I fire the round, it hits center, 3" above line of sight.

    Where is it actually sighted in?

    I have no earthly idea.

    I got it. You've sighted your gun in to where it shoots 3" high at 25 yds. From your previous posts, it looks like it is zeroed at 110 yds. That would be my guess if the bullet hit the groundhog where you were aiming at him.

    I consider 0" only when my bullet crosses through my line of sight.
    That would be a center hold, not 6 o'clock hold

    +1

    If your bullet passed through said dead groundhog at exactly p.o.a. then your gun is zeroed at 110yd Bob.

    I understood what Bob was saying.
    25 yards + 6 o'clock hold = bullseye
    Longer ranges shift to center hold and aim high as needed.

    Some of my guns are zeroed for a 6 o'clock hold at 25 yards. At 50 yards I hold dead center. Works for me.

    If it will satisfy the gentlemen who have questioned me, most of my .44 Magnum revolvers are sighted in so that point of impact is 3" above point of aim at twenty-five yards.

    This is the best I can explain it.

    As to why I hit high on said ground hog, its probably due to imperfections on my part, that is, I THOUGHT I was aiming at center of its chest while I was actually aiming slightly higher.

    He's still dead, not likely to recover.

    Looks like the cartridge I voted for is still in the lead.
