Off which way at 25 feet. If the gun is shooting low at this distance i would back off to 25 yards. It may shoot low because the scope is mounted a about 1 1/2 inch above the bore of the gun. In the 25 feet there is not enough bullet rise to compensate for that sight being that far above the bore. You may have to go with a red dot type or just add a laser if you are going to stick inside your 25 foot zone.
It sounds good to me, don't forget, the 25-06 is a flat shooting round, you have your scope pointing up, the bullet crosses the line of sight twice, One at 100 yrds, your zero and the other on it's way down at about 500 yards. You can check the ballistic coefficient of that bullet and see where you need to be zeroing it in at. I would think about 250 yards, will be 1 1/2 low at 100 yards, 3/4 inches low at 200 yards, dead on at 250, then it will start coming down, say 8 inches low at 400 and 18 inches low at 500. Something like that. So your BDC will not be needed till you reach out past 300 yards, which is varmint country stuff. I have my .22 marlin sighted in at 100 yards, and it will put the lights out on anything at that range. You can probably find the charts on line someplace, if you don't have a reloading manual. Check it out.
if your scope is shooting low and you dont wont to buy a new set of mounts the only way to lift the point of aim is to pack out the eye end of the scope mount with 35mm film or a soft type of shim that wont scrach your scope i use 35mm film at its mostly water proof but there are other shims that do the same thing put about 25th of an inch under the eye end between the scope mount and the scope this will lift the "bell end" up and lower the point of aim there by rasing the impact point of your bullets dont over do this idear as if you go to far you wont get the turrets to drop the point of impact and you could also bend the scope, but 25th of an inch is not a lot but its over 10 inches at 100 yds with a .22 rim fire rifle
good luck shoot safely and good hunting
Keep in mind Diane this is for a set distance. if you are taking a shot at a target further than your are set for (ie a target you wont get 3 shots @) remember how the bullet is travelling as it goes down range
one idea would be to set your rifle up down range and zero it in on a target (preferably paper) now adjust 1 MOA (try and have target @ 100 yards and 200 yards)
see how far the bullet moves for each moa adjustment. then check it against the next range.
this should remain constant @ a set number of inches per 100 yards.
so if you zero in @ 100 yards and then move 1 moa any direction and it adjusts (lets say and hope it is 1.047 inches") then you do the same for 200 yards. it should be twice as much movement. ie 2.094"
once you know what 1 moa represents on your scope you can adjust alot more accurately.
REMEBER the total inches of movement / adjustment per MOA is directly related to range (a precise range helps in shooting) so if your squirrel is 150 yards and your first shot is off 9" to adjust you divide 9" by the inches per moa so 1.5 (150 yards /100) X (Inches per 100 yards per moa you measured hopefully 1.047") its 9" divided by 2x1.047 = 9" / 2.094 = 4.29799
this number needs to be rounded to the nearest click on your scope (most are 1/4 MOA scopes and you can tell by looking at how many clicks/lines are inbewteen each large number on your windage and elevation dials
so to turn this into an adjustment we round 4.29799 to 4.25 which is 4.25 MOA or 17 clicks on a 1/4 min scope.
GL and any questions just post and ill help
not please rate this as fixya :)
Note i can provide EXACT information that would allow you to determine range, and windage and elevation adjustments by looking through scope and estimating range then factoring in weather variables. NOTE you hafta enjoy math or just want to know how to shoot really well. :)
