    just had alook at the nxs and i noticed the 12-42 had only 45moa adjustment and the 8-32 had a bit more at 65, my mark 4 has 70 is this becasue of the extened zoom and how woould 25moa less affect my reach

    thanks

    More mag=less adjustment in most cases. Throw a canted base on there and drive on.

    Might not even need a canted base. What are you shooting (caliber, bc, and velocity) and how far do you want to be able to shoot?

    I would never want more than 6-20 for hunting.Targets could be another matter. I would like a better low end,but options are expensive. I love my Mark 4 ERT,MIL/MIL.i ALSO like that it is 22oz,since it is a packer
