Do I have enough adjustment?
Hey, guys, I need a little help with some mathematics. I want to know if I have enough adjustment in my scope and bases to shoot out to 1500 yards.
Here's my setup: 700SA, Hart 29-inch, heavy varmint contour, 10-twist, 6-groove barrel, chambered in 6x284, shooting Berger 95-grain VLDs at 3,350 FPS at 3,700 feet elevation. Temps will be around 70 degrees and 40% humidity. I have a 20 MOA Farrel base and a Nightforce 12x42x56 scope. Right now the scope is zeroed at 100 yards and is four clicks from bottoming out. Can I get out to 1,500 yards by clicking up?
I'm having to estimate the velocity because my Oehler quit on me. Someone out there might be able to give a better estimate of velocity if they have Quickload or similar software, but I am shooting a 52-grain load of H4831SC. I know this barrel gives 3,200 FPS with the 105 gr. A-Max and 50 grains of H4831SC.
My Sierra software shows a 601-inch drop at 1,500 yards from a 100 yard zero.
Thanks for your help.
