Brent you aren't stupid the bullet does not rise. It does nothing but drop as soon as it leaves the muzzle. But this is only true if the barrel is held exactly level or at a downward angle. Usually when we are aiming a rifle the barrel is pointing upward. This will make the bullet rise thus creating an arch for the bullets trajectory. Since line of sight is a straight line the bullet will cross the line of sight twice (usually).
