For a bolt action rifle, from my kitchen table, I bore sight on telephone pole insulters.This must be done form inside because if neighbors see you, you would be getting a visit form the police. I then take my rifle to the range and place a large target board, at twenty-five yards, with a quater sized dot on its center. The first shot should hit the target board. Now, move your sights, after each shot, until you hit the dot. Twenty-five yards is where the bullets first cross the sighting plane. Depending on you caliber your rifle should be sighted in for about 300 yards. However, it's imperative that you move your target out to the 100, 200, and 300 yards to fine tune your sighting zeros.
