Does this scope come without ZS? Maybe I'm missing something, but I think if you used a 30 MOA base, you would have over 60 MOA of up travel and no need for a ZS?

That's the only solution that I though would work for me, I'm going to want every bit of 65 MOA if I were to get one.

Looks like a real nice scope for the money. Too bad it's only a 1" tube and too bad they don't have MOA reticles. Looks good for something like a 6mm, 25-06, etc.

Shooting a 6mm bullet with a G7 of .27 @ 3400 fps would put me @ 1600 yds above sub-sonic and 44 MOA @ 3000' altitude. Definitely something to consider for a mountain packing wolf regulator.

So by doing that you still have a zero stop but can now adjust the turret more than 16 MOA?

You will not have a stop in either direction if you remove the screw. It is all or nothing
I believe they are saying by using a canted rail you will not be able to dial more than one turn below your zero so the internal stop will keep you from going past one turn...but I could be wrong.
