Scope base: 20* or not?

I am buying a one piece scope base for my Savage heavy barrel .223 1/9" twist with Sightron II Big Sky 6-24x. I have a 100 to 1000 yard range to shoot at. Is there any reason why i shouldn't go with a 20* base over a 0* base. Thinking better to have and not need.

can be difficult to shoot closer range because you start 20 minute high

Not enough information to help you.

What is the total vertical adjustment that scope has and is it MOA, MILLS???

WHAT BULLETS ARE YOU GOING TO BE USING AND WHAT IS AN ESTIMATED MUZZLE VELOCITY?

TORCHRIDER,

I will tell you what I did with my 338 Edge and Vortex PST and see if this helps you.

I have a 20 MOA base and then monted my Vortex in Burris 30mm Signature Zee rings that you can use +10, 0 or -10 inserts. I used the +10 inserts to get a total of 30 MOA. I have about 6-7 moa of adjustment from my 200 yard zero.

How much MOA adjustment do you have for your elevation turet and is it split in half when the scope is opticaly centered?
