800 is not on the NRA zero target.

I shoot GGG 155 grain .308 through a standard TR rifle.
Thanks

Assuming it is the #2155 projectile (I am sure I read it somewhere!) at around 2800fps MV I would say allow 10MOA/2.9Mil however there are a few variables such as temperature that will impact this.

EDIT - beaten to the answer, looks like we agree though :)

Ohh - I would guess around 20 moa going from 100 yard zero to 800 yards - guess I would have been over the bank. Have to have a work out.

200 yd to 800yd would be 23 mins approx. Should have been on the board with 20.

Ahh - Sorry should have read the question, I was thinking from a 100 yard zero to 800 yards. 600 - 800 yards about 9'ish mins.
