    Had this happen. Move the nocking point. Same principle as an open sight on a firearm.

    First I would get the bow tuned. Verifying nock , rest , and peep. Something is wrong.

    Agreed. Check out the setup first. Arrow should sit level and be centered to the berger holes. What is the peep sight distance from the nock point?

    I went and got it paper tuned and lowered the nock and rest to the center of the Berger hole but it's still very close to being bottomed out. Its 6 3/4 from center of peep to center of nock

    That's not a crazy distance but I would draw the bow with your eyes closed and anchor it and then open and see if the peep is below or above your sight line.

    No, you don’t move the nocking point for sighting in. Moving the nocking point is for tuning.

    You say you are “bottomed” out, but shooting high. You should be moving pin up if shooting high. If you can’t move pin up any further, then peep needs to go up. Either way, peep needs to move if maxed out on sight.
