Re: Rem 700 VS w/ 20 moa mount question
Ok, maybe it's just me, but this does not compute in my mind.
.308 Winchester, depending on the bullet, velocity, barrel length (i.e. back to the velocity thing), etc. generally uses from ~35-44 MOA to get to 1k from 100yds.
I forget what the exact numbers are for the particular NF scope you are using, but christ, w/ a 20MOA base it should be a god's plenty to get you to 1k. I mean, when you really look at it, about half your required elevation is already taken care of by the 20MOA base, leaving you 15-25MOA to deal w/ in the scope. Realistically, since you have a VS, and not a sawed off LTR, you are probably looking more in the 15-20MOA range. Like I said, I don't remember how much exactly the 8-32x NXS has for adjustment, but it should be *plenty*, assuming a reasonable load...
*groan* you wouldn't by chance be using something like a factory load w/ a 168gr SMK in it, would you?!?
If you are, my advice to you would be to ditch it, and either handload a 175gr SMK to a healthy speed, or find a batch of Fed Gold Medal or Black Hills Match w/ 175gr SMK. Should make a noticeable difference.
If you aren't, I'd say I'm corn-fused as to WTF is going on. And would dearly love to know what shakes out on this one.
