    Don't get too wrapped up in this figure. It doesn't make a lot of difference. I just went to and entered the following info:

    Factory Ammo - Black Hills Gold .308 Win 168gr AMax
    100 yard zero
    4550ft elevation
    45 degrees, 58% humidity, 25.47" pressure

    Scope height - 1.5" - 1,000 yard drop = 35.5 moa
    Scope height - 2.0" - 1,000 yard drop = 35.1 moa

    Try it for yourself. I leave the scope height at the 1.75" default anymore. Worry about reading the wind and not scope height in tenths of inches. One less thing to worry about.

    There's no bad way to kill a snake.
