Re: Will a higher scope height
Actually a higher scope will make the difference between say 100yds and 1000yds less in MOA, because of the greater angle between the line of sight and the bore of the barrel. At 100yds, the line of sight and the line of the bore are intersecting at a greater angle (sort of appears that the scope is aiming down more). This gives a slightly less need for elevation at the longer distances. For a 308 type cartridge, the difference is only about 1 MOA at 1000yds according to Exbal. With a 1.5" scope height and a 100yd zero, exbal estimates 39.5moa to reach 1000yds with a 175gr SMK at 2600fps. The same load with a 2.5" scope height only requires 38.5moa to reach 1000yds.
Hope this helps.
If some is good and more is better, then too much is just right.
