.308 rifle, 14x scope 1000 yards?
Searched, but didn't find what I was looking for... Sorry if this has been repeated, which it probably has
So, I have a Savage 308, currently topped with a Nikon Buckmasters 4.5-14 scope. In theory, going from calculations on the G7 Ballistics calculator, My scope can reach 1k yards, but it's the very last click on the elevation knob with my current zero. in reality, given that's it a 308, I wouldn't be hunting with it at that range, just shooting for fun, because this site has gotten me hooked on the thought of going for a long shot
So, my question has several parts. 1, would a 20 MOA base be somethng good to consider, so I can have some more room at the bottom end of my elevation. Or, 2 given the scope, would it be better to wait till I have the money for a scope with more MOA in elevation?
