AT 600' elevation, 2.2' scope height, 20 moa base
, 0.419 BC7,
you should have very close to 43 moa of vertical adjustment left when zeroed at
100 yards; which will let you shoot out to 1450 yards. (using turrets only)
AT 600' elevation, 2.2' scope height, 40 moa base
, 0.419 BC7,
would not be able to zero at 100 yards, nor at 200 yards but you would be able
to do it at 250 yards. Now with a 250 yards zero, you would have about 51.5 MOA
of vertical adjustment left which would put you out to about 1640 yards.
Again, (using turrets only)
A 250 yards zero is great because from (0 yards to 295 yards) you can hit a
5.4" plate without making any adjustments... pretty cool!
I Hope that helps!
Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.
Our Lord Jesus said that as it was in the days of Noah and
also as it was in the days of Lot so it shall be in the days...
It's happening again!!! God sent to us His prophet, and His Word
to this generation and we once more are rejecting it as was prophesied!!!
