Re: Opinions / Help with Schmidt & Bender Scope ??
The needed adjustment depends on your caliber and distance you want to shoot. You will be fine out to 400yds with a flat base and most any cal. S&B recommends a 25-30moa base to take advantage of ALL the elevation the scope has to offer and to get a .308 out to 1000yds you need all you can get. You will get the most out of your windage adjustment when the scope is centered as well. The further you shoot the more you will need to compensate for windage. Ideally if you were to shoot 1000yds you would want your scope close to center at that distance just incase you need to dial a bunch for wind. With a good base and ring setup and a shooting distance of 100-400 yds you could live with the scope not being optically centered if need be because you shouldn’t need much windage.
What you need to do is figure out how much adjustment you will need for your shooting conditions (distance, caliber, windage) and see what the chosen optic has to offer. With a flat base you will more than likely be in the middle of the adjustment range for a 100yd zero. If the scope has 100 MOA of total adjustment you may end up with around 50 (+/-) moa of travel to play with from your 100yd zero.
