I am having an issue with my "Budget LRR' its an axis 308 with a 20 moa rail, cheap 10-40x50 scope that has 38 moa total up/down adjustment. Im using hand loads 150gn hornady btsp at 2860fps and the gun shoots 1.25 moa at 600 meters. The rail is an egw rail and the mounts are warne high, the gap from glass centre to barrel centre is 2", i know this is a little high but one day i intent on putting on a 56 or even 60mm scope so i will need them.
The issue is, After sighting in at 100 meters i only have 24 moa of up adjustment but need 27 to get to 800, i don't understand where my extra 20 moa went. If i use the hold over bars in the scope i need to shoot about 1/3 below the crosshairs to hit the 10" target.
In theory i should be struggling to sight in at 100m as i shouldnt have enough down. Any thoughts????
I have a great woman, fantastic kids, a warm place to sleep and an accurate rifle. Life is good ..............

EMP, Im pretty sure its on correctly, higher to the back.
Mountain 56, with 38 travel i should be able to shoot 1200m using the 20 moa rail.
Fear no wind, I'd love to watch the video but when you have no choice but dial up speeds youtube is worst than useless, but still im nor sure how i could have tightened up and negated about 4mm of steel.
