This is my first post! I joined this forum because I have the following problem and need some help:
I recently bought a Savage 10FP .308 because it was time to retire my Remington 788 .308.
To match the rifle, I shelled out what I thought was a lot of money, and bought a Weaver Grand Slam Tactical 4.5-14x40mm scope w. a Mil-Dot (I plan on hunting and shooting out to 500 yards with this rig eventually).
I found that my Savage REALLY like Hornaday Custom SST 150 Grain loads (yea, I know: FACTORY LOADS!!!) I don't have reloading equiptment YET, but I will one day.
My issue is that in order for me to find paper, I had to add about 30 MOA of elevation before I was hitting bullseyes. I plan on one day creating a Dope Chart for my rifle, but my concern is that I only have 20 MOA left on my scope.
I am wondering why it took so much elevation to hit @100? I have low Weaver rings and bases on it, should I get some heavier, higher rings?
Please give me your advice. I could use it. Thanks!
