Yes, The way I see it you simply raised your elevation turret 1 1/4 moa then loosened the turret and reset it to zero. Correct? If so, you are starting 1 1/4 moa above all you drop chart settings, so take 1 1/4 of each distance setting or you will be 1 1/4 moa high on them all.

But, like said here before. It never hurts to recheck. Just in case we missed something or the scope didn't track or one many things. Plus, this way you will know for sure and won't miss that 200" Whitetail this November.
