I recently purchased a Remington Sendero SF2 (300 Ultra) with a Leupold VX3 4.5-14x50 w/ M1 elevation and windage turrets. Purpose for this purchase was to be a good all-around big game gun (deer, elk, moose, etc) Figure on shooting 200g SMK or Accubonds.
I have not purchased rings or bases yet because the scope is being made at Leupold's Custom Shop in the next 4-6 weeks. My 2 questions are:
1. With the current rifle and scope, can I get out to 1000 yards?
2. Will I need an MOA base to achieve this or can I go with Standard Bases?
All responses are appreciated. Thanks,
1. Yes. With the 208 Amax and the 210 VLD you should require approx 15-20 MOA elevation depending on your environment and the muzzle velocity of the load you settle in on. 10 MOA will have your optic centered at approx 700-800 yards depending on your specific action, scope, and load.
2. No, you will not require it with your current optic. My first choice for a base for your rifle would be a Near Mfg 10 or 20 MOA base. If they are too pricey, then my second would be a Seekins precision
20 MOA base.
