    What sort of ranges do you normally shoot at?
    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.

    From 50-150 on a high seat but up to 300 lamping for fox is what my .223 was used for. At these ranges it was fairly flat. Im new to .243

    I think all centrfires should be zeroed at 100 metres

    So you are talking typical woodland stalking distances with some longer range shots (up to say 300 yards) for foxing.

    Personally I would take the common approach of a 1" high point of impact at 100 yards however have you considered the "most recommended distance" approach? Have a look in some of the ammunition catalogues or websites such as RWS, Sellior & Bellot and Sako, they generally explain this idea quite well. Then if you do decide to go that way get some range time in with your actual rifle and ammo and learn from your results at the various distances.
