The 4.5-14x50 LR has 90 moa of up. The 6.5-20 and 8.5-25 LR models have 72 moa of up. Just to set the record straight. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Nate,
Is 72MOA a figure you get taking into account the base? I looked at the chart on Premeir reticles page for the long range leupolds and they show 90MOA. Did I read it wrong?

Re: how far will 90 MOA of adjustment allow you to shoot?

I've got a Leu 6.5-20x50 LR with M1 turrets on my 30-06. it is zeroed at 100 yards, 190grSMK at 2900fps.

I just checked my up and down travel:

51 MOA up.
44MOA down.

That looks like a total of 95 MOA travel. But Leupold specifications indicate this scope has 72 MOA max vertical adjustment.

I cannot explain this. Anybody else???

MM

Re: how far will 90 MOA of adjustment allow you to shoot?

After looking through Premier Reticle's website, I see that the Premier conversion does indicate 90 MOA vertical adjustment on the 6.5-20x50 LR. The leupold specs under VX-III indicates 72.

Looks like the the conversion yields more adjustment. I'm not smart enough about the innards of a scope to explain it.

I think that's because the 30mm tube on the long range model offers more room for the internal adjustments to move.
