    I'm just thinking, is there any noticable difference between a 0 and a 10 MOA scope base in regards to cheek weld?

    I mean will I have to lift my head up a bit with a 10 MOA scope base?
    Thanks

    Your only talking about a few thousandths of an inch(15-20 maybe) so I don't think you will notice anything.

    Thanks. I was thinking about it and wouldn't the lower end be towards the stock? It would keep my head down a bit on the stock, wouldn't it. Or would it tend to make me lift my head up a bit?
    Thanks

    You'll lift your head a little, the scope will slope down toward the muzzle.
