Sighting in T/C Encore @ 25 yd range

I need to sight in my new T/C Encore before my elk hunt in NM, but the only range I have access to is an indoor 25 yd range. I'll be shooting 290 gr Spit-Fire TMZ w/ 100gr of 777 powder. I'd like to have it zero at 100yd since I'm using open peep sight instead of a scope. I took it to the range a few weeks and I was 4" high. I'll sight it in at 100 yds when I get to NM a couple of days before the hunt, but would like to get a little range time in before that. Any suggestions would help.

I think you would just be wasteing lead and powder at 25yds, unless you just want to get the feel of the rifle.
Never mind the dog, beware of the Colt!
