MOA click limit

I'd like to know if a scope with 50 MOA clicks would have enough windage for a 30-06 up to 700-1,000 yds Zero'd at 200yds. I've been thinking about the IOR Tactical 6x24-50.
I'm using Hornady 30-06 SPRG 165 GR SST LIGHT MAG

50 moa is 336.45 inches at 700 yards and 523.5 inches at 1000 yards. If your loads fall within this moa path then youll be fine.

I may be reading it wrong but i am taking it as the scope has 50 MOA not that he has 50 moa left. If he has 50 moa left he will be good to go but i imagine that he will be fine once he has the scope mounted and will have enough moa left to make the trip.

Re: MOA click limit

With a 35 mm tube I was wondering but IOR website says 65 moa but doesnt say if its total or half. If its 65 total then he has roughly 32.5 moa which will equate to roughly
238 inches@700 yards and 340 inches@1000 yards.
I was wondering but thought I'd give it as I read it.
Good point to bring up though.

Re: MOA click limit

On IOR's website it says the 4-14x tactical has "82max moa" this scope only has a 30mm housing so I think it is safe to say that the 6-24x with the 35mm housing probably has around 130 moa, which would give you more adjustment than your 30/06 could ever use.

Re: MOA click limit

Inukshuk,
Here is a table with info. for MOA needed at different ranges using that Hornady load; assuming that you get MV=3015 and your scope hight is 1.7"



700 yards you would not have any problems, but 1000 yards is getting pretty ify. It all depends on how the scope mounts on the rifle. My guess is that you would be good up to about 850 yards using conventional scope rings.
Good Hunting!

I'm not sure if I understood you right, but does that mean a drop of 336.45" at 50 MOA 700yds? If so that's a hell of a lot. I know with the cartridge I am using it's a 39" drop at 500yds.
