Leupold 6.5-20 vari-x III

Can somebody tell me how much adjustability is in these older style leupolds? Trying to figure out if its got enough elevation for long range shooting on my 6.5 creedmoor. Thanks

Thanks for your input loosesniper2000. While waiting for a reply here, I decided to give leupold a call directly and they informed me that the scope had 50 moa travel both verticle and horizontal. With a 20moa base this scope should get me past a thousand yards!

I'm sure they're right but I have an older style myself and it has 75. Try this once, if it has target turrets just go to the bottom and count the clicks, then divide by 4
Since it's a 1/4" per click then 4 would equal 1 moa.
Try that and let me know who's right.

I bottomed the turret out in one direction and counted clicks all the way in the opposite direction and came up with 246 clicks-61.5moa. I wanted to know the factory rating on the scope because I figured that the scope probably didn't follow all the clicks at the extreme ends of the adjustments.
