Re: measuring scope height using canted bases
You may have to go to the range to confirm which measurement to use. A friend of mine had the same issue. Not going to make alot of difference until you get out there a ways. On his gun, with a 200 yd sight in, the ballistics program said to add 17 clicks to be on at 400 yds. with both scope height measurements. So it took quite a distance on that rifle before any discrepency showed up in the program using the 2 heights. Of course, when this will happen will depend on the trajectory of the round you are shooting.
I would plug in the higher, print off the data for the middle and lower number and go shoot and see what matches up.
Unfortunately, this looks like a case of having to tell the ballistics program what to do instead of the other way around....
Hopefuly somebody can give you a more useful answer than this. I just know we went and shot my buddies 7WSM to make sure and settled on the middle measurement at the scope .
