Re: Ballistic Apps and Sloped Rails?

The 20moa rails just allow you to utilize more of the internal adjustment in your scope so let's say the scope has 100moa of vertical adjustment and it's zeroed right in the middle instead of wasting the 50moa of down adjustment you'll never use you'll have 70moa up from zero and only 30moa down.

With a flat rail the line of sight is parallel to line of bore. With the sloped rail the eye piece is higher than the objective lens center. The slope of the rail and scope are =.

it may be as simple as, if center of scope is also centered between rings the value to enter into ballistic software is the difference between line scope C/L and C/L of rings.

This ts taxing my mine more than I need at the moment. Think I'll pop another OxyContin and take a nap. Pain sux when it's not due to recoil.
I may be the slowest guy on the mountain . . . . but . . . . I'm on the mountain!
