Adjusting my scope

I have a .243 that i've been shooting out to 600 yrds with a bushnell elite 4200 tactical scope on it, and i have a question that i need a hand fixing.

when my scope is sighted in i have about 14 moa adjustment up and 20+ moa adjustment down. I need the extra adjustment up to go beyond 600 yards, and i'm wondering what i can do to use some of the downward adjustment that i'm not using and move it up.

Re: Adjusting my scope

You need a sloped base or some Burris Signature rings.

Re: Adjusting my scope

The picatinny base looks like this:

Probably a 10 moa would be the one to use.
With the burris signature rings you could probably use 15 moa which would give you a total upwards adjustment of about 29 moa and leaving about 5 moa from bottoming out when zeroed at (100 yards)?

Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.

Our Lord Jesus said that as it was in the days of Noah and
also as it was in the days of Lot so it shall be in the days...
It's happening again!!! God sent to us His prophet, and His Word
to this generation and we once more are rejecting it as was prophesied!!!

---> As promised, God Sent His Prophet to us!
