Re: scope upgrade

oh ok im running a 20 moa base but that may even be overkill. im running a 300 rum,208grain amax and 2950 fps. id like to hunt out to 1000yards, i nailed a red at 755 the other day and thought a little more zoom would be cool.

    So based on your data you would need roughly about 24/25 MOA to get you out to 1k. Any of the Nightforce will have plenty of the adjustment to get you there.

    i have a March on order, it's a 2.5-25X that has 100 MOA of adjustment, and another 20 with the reticle. it's only 12" long, weighs about 22 oz. great optics, great function, it's like a sore dick...you can't beat it!
