I'll just write down where my scope was before I adjust it for further distance ?

You are right bruce_ventura. I can get to 800 yards with a 250 yard zero @ 4000' but that is not what I want. Zeiss really messed up. This nice compact scope with its short turrets would have been a cat's meow. Was all ready to order one till 8and bait clued me in. Back to the HS or PST.
I absolutely agree! Why did Zeiss expand the elevation MOA travel to 65 MOA and you can't even take advantage of it when you use the zero stop!

My Vortex Viper PST 6-24x50 FFP EBR-1 MOA Reticle Scopes have a zero stop and I have over 46 MOA elevation travel on them with my EGW 20 MOA Picatinny rail, Burris 30mm Xtreme Tactical Picatinny-Style Rings mounting setup.
