Re: Scope base: 20* or not?
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?
