You have 56moa in the scope that makes a 28 top and 28 to the bottom. If you use a 15moa bases you still have 13moa to the bottom. Like you said it take 38moa with a 200yds zero to get to 1k and 42moa w/ a 100yds zero. The key is to get the reticle back to the center of the tube. The reason for this is to achieve the best possible image out of the scope.
I should have not recommend 40moa but the should have recommend the 20 to 30moa base. A 30moa best will give him a 200yds zero but may not give him a 100yds zero.
I also recommend trying 175gr over the 168gr for the 168gr tend to tumble at 1k in cold weather.
The 15 MOA base works for me, and it keeps the scope low enough for a comfortable cheek weld.
It really not effect your cheek weld.
