Simple geometry.

If it was 6 inches high at, say, 10 yards, that's an angle of 0.955 degrees up from horizontal.

If it was 6 inches high at 20 yards, that's an angle of 0.477 degrees.

And at 100 yards the angle has dropped to 0.0955 degrees.

The bullet has to be dropping for the angle to decrease, unless your bullets defy gravity and follow a perfectly flat trajectory and your muzzle is exactly six inches above the horizontal line to the target.
