elevation adj. w/ turrets and reticle
I'm waiting on a Savage 110 FCP HS in 338LM. It is around 10lbs unscoped. I'm going to try and keep it to a managable weight. Ive been thinking about scopes since I had an Edge planned well over a year ago. I want something with more than 18x on the top end. I would prefer a FFP if the reticle was't too heavy. I'm also used to MOAs. All my other LR rifles have MOA adjustments and/or MOA reticles.
I asked Premier if they were planning on a 5-25 light tactical, they said nothing was in the works.
I don't need an illuminated so I asked vortex if they had a higher magnification Viper HS brewing(HS has more internal adjustment than the PST) That was a no go.
Nightforce is still an option, but it would be heavy, as would the Razor, but both would have plenty of elevation.
IOR stuff seems pretty limited in elevation adjustment.
The Savage 110BA came with a 20MOA rail, I'm expecting that on my 110 FCP.
If I go with the 6-24 FFP PST, I'll have about +/- 52 MOA of max elevation with the 20MOA rail (at 5k ft elevation my max is real close to drop for 1 mile).
If I end up with less elevation range or I want to play at 2k or 1 mile at lower elevation could I use the reticle for the aditional MOA (an available 30MOA)? I would assume yes, but I have never done that.
On a side note the reticle subtension on the PST FFP for the thickness of the reticle is .18MOA I think I can deal with less than 2" @ 1000yds.
Any suggestions or comments?
