sight height

I have 30 moa of taper in my scope mounts and am about to send in for my engraved turrets. do you measure sight height at the very end of the objective or up by the chamber? since its tapered the 2 numbers will be different.

    You measure from the center line of the scope to the center line of the bore, a few thousnadths of an inch one way or the other ain't going to matter.

    I estimate center as new as I can at the chamber and that works for me
