I'm using a 20MOA base from Champion's Choice (can't remember the manf.) & Badger Ordnance rings on a Remington long action. Caliber is 7mmRUM. Scope is the same - NF 12-42x56mm with NP1-RR reticle.

I get the same results. I have a Savage 12F-TR with a Warne Tactical 20MOA base with a Nightforce 12-42BR on it. I have it zeroed at 100 yards and have 4.625 MOA to spare. I only shoot to 1000 yards and need 30MOA of elevation so I guess I got lucky!. ;)
