NightForce 12 x 42 on 40 degree base
I am thinking about mounting a NightForce 12 x 42 scope on a 40 degree base with the hope this will result in the internal adjustment being close to the bottom of the range. Let's say this results in my zero point being 9 clicks from the bottom. If I adjust the scope to shoot 600 yds and forget how many clicks I turned the scope up before I remember to rezero, then I can turn it all the way down and turn up 9 clicks from there to get back to my zero.
Is what I am thinking reasonable and will it damage my scope or affect it's operation. Will it affect my ability to adjust for parallax or focus, etc. Will it damage the scope by suppressing springs or other parts beyond what they are designed to on a permanent basic.
Your thoughts both pro and con will be appreciated.
