I'm kind of surprised at that review... CSgunworks normally is right on the money, but on that one, he's off in the tulies. 44 moa elev, + 40 moa base, would put you unable to get a 100yd zero, by about 3-1/2 *feet*.
I don't know where you got '154 inches', but that number is way off. Try more like 'over 400 inches'... which is why you need to forget 'inches' and start thinking in MOA - or mils - to simplify the math. A 175gr SMK @ that speed is more like a flying bumble bee... something like 38-39 moa of up, and just barely supersonic when it gets there. There are better choices out there unless you are seriously married to that particular bullet/speed combination. Even just punting it out the gate a little harder (2650-2700fps is common) would leave you a little more breathing room as far as making it to the target supersonic.
44 moa of elevation, which *should* give you 22 moa of 'up'... except for it'd be a rare gun/scope combination in my experience that actually zeroed right at its mechanical zero (center) @ 100yds. Most likely you'll have to come up/down, right or left to get it zeroed. Using a 20 moa base should theoretically leave you w/ 2 moa off the bottom @ 100yds - which ain't much wiggle room, but it should work. From there, I'd suggest using some Burris Signature Zee rings w/ the inserts to 'tweak' your elevation requirements as needed. I'm not a huge fan of the ring design overall, but they do work nicely for things like this.
