Help with my Nightforce scope

so I mounted my 3.5-15x50 to my rem. sendero using seekings rings and base. Today when i was sighting in with my new toy i had to go 3/4 of the way up with the elevation turret. obviously this isn't going to be good when it come time to dial in that looooong paper shot. right now my zero has the scope with only 28MOA 'UP' remaining.
any ideas?

I have never had this happen with a scope so I'm a little lost.

Maybe i made an error mounting or???

THANKS!

Well first, do you have any pics ? 20 moa base ? Low rings I presume....

Second, what caliber... if 7mm, then 28 MOA should get you past 1200 yards....

Last, what reticle are you using in the scope ?

This is the reason most use at least a 20 MOA tapered base inorder to have more verticle adjustment left in the turret after zeroing.....

Running the R1 reticle, why are you worried about dialing anyways ?

Zero at 300 and call it good. Use your reticle for hold unders and overs.

Try to sell your base and buy a 20 MOA. You'll get along with it better.

Let us know or post your pics of your setup.

My guess is you may have mounted the rail reversed?? the rail has to be lower in the muzzle end than on the other side.

i know for sure the base isnt on the wrong way - the seekins one piece only fit one way.
