New Sako a7 long range 25-06: question about sighting

Just got it this weekend. Shoots great. Beautiful gun.

Shooting federal premium 115 grain NP.

Sighted 1.5" high at 100yd. Based on the ballistics chart , I should be dead on at 200 yd.

Trying to figure out at which short distance I should expect to be zeroed in . 50? 75?

Would appreciate the boards advice.

Thanks.

Use Berger Bullets' calculator in the following link and you'll see where your bullets are relative to the line of sight at different ranges. Results will be pretty close to reality for your load.
