That doesn't sound so bad. I do have a couple more questions now that I have done some more poking around.
1) I see this Zeiss doesn't have the zero stop option. Is this something I can do without as I'm learning to extend my range? Or is it necessary, from the beginning for a new long range shooter?
2) I have a windage base on this rifle now and I see it is subject to alignment issues. In the article I just read Leveling the Scope Reticle for Long Range Rifles
they say that picatiny rails also present this same issue, to some degree. Can someone recommend a good base and rings that won't give as much fit, tall enough for the 50mm glass. This is going on a Rem700 in .270win
3) Also are these turrets lockable? I hunt in central Missouri. Some of the farms I hunt are bean and corn fields where 500-600 yards can happen, some are woods and ceder thickets where 60-100 might be max. I'm concerned with having the turrets move and not noticing this until the shot has missed on a quick shot.
