Re: 40 MOA base still zero at 100 yds?
I think your scope has 72 moa total, (thats what my 8.5x25 Lupy had) so in a perfect world you will have 36 moa each direction. We just put a 5.5 x22 x56 NXS on our 300 Win using a 40 Moa base and 1.125" NF rings. The NXS has 100 MOA of adjustment and zeroed at 100 yds. we are 10 moa off the bottom. I would say the best you could hope for would be a 300 yard zero. Which really would not be all that bad. Depending on what you are hunting, if it is 300 or closer, just shoot it. But you could be 4" high at 100. And again that is if the scope does have 72 moa, and the reticle is centered, and the base is a true 40 moa. in a perfect world.
