    May I ask possibly a \"DUMB\" optical question.........

    I've been looking at a Nightforce scope, and in their catalog they note 100 moas of elevation.

    Here's my dumb question: Is that 100 moa elevation movement up from center, or is it 50 moa up from center??? /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    See Here? /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif

    Thanks for the education in this matter. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smirk.gif

    100 total, 50 up from center.

    had 70 up with a 20 MOA base on my 308.

    if you get the NP-R2 reticle you could gain 20 to 30 MOA depending on how you use it.

    I've sure injoyed my Nightforce!

    You will love the NXS scopes! My first one just arrived today and is impressive to say the least!
