Re: Dang It!

I'm OK with 1700 yards being my Max. When I out grow that ill get a 40 moa rail. I'm just glad my scope isn't messed up And it has the 90+ elevation adjustment I thought it should have.

Re: Dang It!

What yardage did you use for a zero?
With your scope set on zero carefully turn the turret down until it bottoms out
Counting how many Moa it is to the bottom.
Odds are preaty slim your zero is exactly in the middle of the scope if its high say 55 moa up from bottom minus your 30 moa base you would be at 25 moa on zero with only 65 moa left in travel.
