You can get 0-20-or 40 moa bases it tilts the front of the scope downward to add elevation.

My leuocrap, took a 6x6, # 30+ elk, and a couple more animals out to 800 yrds. this year. Also has shot 6'' at 1000. ffp, my own zero stop for 20 min of my time, and mil/mil. And weighs in at little over 20 oz.

With a nightforce you dial up in inches with a ballistics chart. As for leupolds they are like john deeres, your buying a name, I don't care what kind of groups anyone shoots at a 1000yrds, I have seen more than a dozen take a $hit on heavy recoiling light guns, and only 1 nightforce. When people say high end nightforce, us optics, s&b, and march, I never hear any mention of leupolds, actually I wouldn't trade a nikon for one, since we are voicing our opinions.
