10 MOA for 7mm Rem Mag

I'm thinking would 10 MOA for a 7mm Rem Mag enable me to adjust a 3mm scope to shoot at 1000 yards? And also sight in at 100 yards?

Has anyone figured this out?
Thanks
Bill

I use a 0 moa and I'm good to 1200 yards with 180 bergers.

I believe that a 0 MOA base will enable you to shoot to 1,000 yards with a 7mmRem. Mag and an appropriate long range load. MY 7WSM gets there in 24MOA with Berger 180s. Then again, it depends upon the make of your scope, the load that you are shooting, and the bullet that you are using.

Thanks for the info. I may never shoot to 1000 yards, but it would nice to have the option. Where I live it is tough to find a place shoot out to 600 yards.

Thanks

Re: 10 MOA for 7mm Rem Mag

Ha, I see what you mean!!!! I could probably get to 100 yards with a 3mm scope!!! Sorry, I'm tired, got a newborn and been working lots of OT.

I meant 30mm. I got mm and cm cornfused..

So, say a 180 grain berger drops 300 inches at 1000 yards, that is 30 MOA, right? And if my scope has say, 65 MOA, figure you divide in half and have say 32 MOA with a zero MOA base, right? So by adding a 10 MOA scope base that would give me another 100 inches of play at 1000 yards, right?

Looks about right to me Bill, just wondering have you looked into a 20 MOA base to give yourself lots of room?
