45-70 Pro Hunter

Working on a Pro Hunter with 24" SS barrel, 4x32 Sightron in a DNZ mount. Been testing Hornady 325 gr flextips. Thought I had it perfect: 2" above POA at 50 yds, 3" above POA at 100, holes touching. Then took 3 shots at 200 yd and impact 8.5" low. Should be 4" low. Anyone else worked up this combo of barrel and ammo?

the truth is not always what is written in handloading and ballistic info. Trust your own target and you can't go wrong. 8.5 low is still in the boiler room on a fine buck or bull.
