Re: Stupid Question

Boresighting is usualy only useful for getting windage on and elevation roughly. Hard to be more precise.

Glad to hear it worked out or you, try getting a 20, or 30moa base. That will give you enough elevation for for way past 1k with most cartridges.
"Out of range" is a theoretical concept as far as I'm concerned. Send it!

Re: Stupid Question

According to my drop chart, with the MOA I have now I should be able to get out to about 700 yds. I have not tried yet, but that will be plenty for what I am doing. I just started reloading and I am going to try and test out some rounds today...

Re: Stupid Question

Don't go to close to the end of the elevation travel or it may restrict your windage adjustment.
