Bill, I'm thinking he actually means full travel with his "elevation" adjustment, not necessarily up AND down.
You probably know that with the wind at mechanical center, he has capability to dial as far (up) as the scope elevation would go under ideal conditions. If the wind is subtantantially off center, it will limit elevation travel.
