Out of curiosity, I just ran the data, on Exbal, for one of my rifles at 1000 yds. The elevation at that distance came back as 28.25 MOA. I then went back and only changed the scope height from 1.75" to 2.0". That elevation came back as 28.0 MOA.
1/4 MOA change at 1000 for a 1/4" difference in scope height.
I just wish I had a place to shoot at 1000 to demonstrate it!
