I went to range this morning for some more shooting of my .270. The 100 yard range was reserved for the police/prison guards so I had to shoot at 75 yard range. I am shooting federal premium nosler ballistic tips in 130 grain. I have a very nice tight group 2 inches high at 75 yards. My question is at 100 yards what will the drop be?Thanks for any feedback.
Can't be answered exactly as you need to know the height of center of the scope above the center of the bore (determines the upward angle of bullet flight across the line of sight). But guessing it is around 1.5" and guessing a velocity of about 3000fps. It is still rising at 100 to about +2.5".
3 high at 150, 2 high at 200, 0 again at 250

I'm of the opinion that a 250 yd zero is just about right for the 270 and that should be pretty close to where you are. Checking at 200 yds will tell you more now than going to 100. If you're still 2 to 2.5 inches high at 200 yds, I would say you're in excellent shape.
