It should be recognized that for long range shooting the bullet will cross the line of sight twice, once on the way up and again on the way down. At the latter point, if the rifle is sighted in properly, the bullet may impact the target and stop or continue past/through the target. This is taken advantage of in military training where it allows rifles to be sighted in at short range and retain the same sight setting at hundreds of yards.
