I have finally received my MVA Sharps tang sight for my Shiloh Business rifle. 28” barrel. Can any of you 45-70 shooters give me a rough sight setting for 100 yards? I know there are a lot of variables but let’s just say for the 500 grain govt bullet

Here is a rough estimate for elevation come-ups.

From 100 yds. come up 10 min. for 200 yds.
from 200 yds. come up 15 min. for 300 yds.
from 300 yds. come up 15 min for approx. 400 yds.
from 400 yds. come up 20 min. for approx. 500 yds.

These estimates will get you close enough depending on your powder charge and bullet weight.
