Re: Ring Height?
Dr Vette & All,
Thanks for all the 1st hand info- you guys are very generous with your time in explaining this to those of us not so familiar with the MOA base issues. I'm new to shooting beyond 600 so haven't had to think about this until now.
I'm mounting a Monarch with a total of 34 MOA internal adjustment on a Savage in 7mm RM, and am realizing that if the zero at 100 or 200 eats up the first 10 MOA of the scope with level bases then I'll proably need a 20 MOA boost in the mounting setup to go out to 1000 yards +. (Ballistics charts say 26 MOA @ 1K)
But of equal concern is how far back I can mount the scope. I don't want to have to crane forward to get a proper sight picture yet (without having mounted it yet), it seems like I can't mount it back far enough if I use standard 2 piece Burris or Leupold rings/bases. Any ideas about how to remedy this?
