Re: Scope height relevancy on LR rigs.??
It works the other way around.
1" above the bore = 18.8MOA at 1000 yds in my 6.5/300 Weatherby
2.5" above the bore= 17.5 MOA at 1000 yards
Check the ballistics charts.
The higher the scope above the bore, the more MOA you obtain and the less clicks you will use at the extended ranges.
The higher you are above the bore means your optical line crosses the bullet path line, "further out". This allows for a few less clicks to the extended distance. [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img] Not a huge difference but, a difference.
