Re: Scope for 1000 yards

I guess that if you are taking head shots at prairie dogs the 1/8" clicks would make it easier. I took it for granted that you would be hunting bigger game.

For hunting bigger game you'll have no problem. I target shoot with my 308, so precision is key. As for bigger game you'll have no problem, just don't forget about knock down power at further distances.

Re: Scope for 1000 yards

I feel the opposite.

The less clicks the better. I'd like 1/2 moa adjustments. I think if I am good enough to shoot within a 1/2" I probably am shooting pretty good. Or maybe I should practice more.

Re: Scope for 1000 yards

I agree less clicks is better. That's why I've spent the extra for a left handed 20MOA scope base. I've also zeroed my rifle at a further distance. If you know the average distance you will be shooting the zero at that distance. That equates to less time to dope your scope. Less human error. If I was to do it over, I'd get a scope with 1/8" adjustment knobs at 100yds.

Re: Scope for 1000 yards

I own several 1000 yard benchrest rifles with 20 MAO bases, but I've never heard of a left handed one ? I'm curious what is the difference ? I thought a 20 MOA base was a picatinny base that tilted down towards the muzzle at 20 MOA regardless of right hand or left handed
action.

I'm waiting to learn something new also.

Re: Scope for 1000 yards

Me too.

I'd guess he typed fast and left out it's on a left handed bolt gun?

MOA rail can be any degree right, 20 seems to be the most used?
