Actually with the 06 rise and fall 0 at 100 gives me 0 at 200, I would be high at 150

Um, huh? A bullet doesn't rise for one, for two it's impossible to be zeroed at 100 and also at 200, it doesn't matter the cartridge. Go shoot it at 100 and then at 200 holding the same POA if you don't believe me.

An 06 with a 100 yard zero will be about 2.8" low at 200 with a 125 gr bullet. With a 200 yard zero and the same bullet it'll be about 1.5" high at 100.

Oh boy.
I don't think it rises above the plane of the barrel but it rises above the elevation of the barrel because the barrel is pointed up to intersect the crosshairs out at 100yds.

You all are absolutely correct misread the chart a 300 0 will place both my 100 and 200 about 4"s high
of I am reading it correctly this time.

My '06 is zero'd at 200 with the Barnes Vortex 180grain


Now if could just get my groups tighter.... 3.5" is the best I can do so far.
You shooting off a bench or prone off a bipod? Make sure your mounts, rings and action screws are tight. A Vanguard should shoot MOA most of the time. Unless that target is pretty small??

Read the very bottom on the line with the red line. It says 4.7" high at 100 and 5.5" high at 200 to get to a 300 yard zero. Mainly because a 30/06 shooting a 180gr bullet isn't very flat shooting. Then if you notice, at 600 yards it drops 65.2". To make a quick comparison, my .243 AI with a 105gr bullet is 1.5" high at 100, zero at 300 and drops 36" at 600.

That chart is pretty hard to read, find one that is just a drop chart, only yardages and inches. The graph isn't accurate enough.
