Re: 40 MOA Bases

I had a set of custom 40moa scope bases/rings made by Bat Machine on a custom rifle that I just sold and didn't have or need an adjustable cheek piece. I was using a Leupold 8.5-25x50 LRT and the stock was a Shehane MBR Tracker. FWIW, I was 12moa from the bottom of adjustment when zeroed at 100yds.

Re: 40 MOA Bases

I would have it made with 40moa. In my post above the 40moa rings/bases I had made by Bat Machine mounted a Leupold 8.5-25x50 LRT and I was shooting the 240 SMK at 2900fps and just had enough elevation to shoot 1 mile.

Re: 40 MOA Bases

I have a 338 Lapua with 40 MOA Night Force base and 3.5-15x50 Night Force scope.

It works out so that zero'd at 100 yards I am 8 moa off the bottom of the scope. Since my model doesn't have a zero stop it works well this way instead. To get back to my zero I just crank till bottom out and then come up to zero on the turret (8 moa). I also get close to 100 moa of available up travel this way.

Yes, I do have an adjustable cheek rest.
