    Just wanting to know if it makes any difference if you mount the scope at the front of the rail compared to the back ?? I have seen a number of guns with the scope on the forward most position, but for me the eye relief is no good. I have the scope mounted futher to the rear on the second last slot. Is this o.k or should it be mounted as far forward as possible ??

    Just new to using moa rails, so bare with me !

    Cheers

    I would set it correctly for your eye relief and place the mounts as far apart as you can get them.

    Hope that made sense.

    AJ,

    Appreciate that !! Thats what Ive done, I just was not sure if this affected anything because of the taper on the rail. I thought I might affect the amount of moa left to dial up with !

    It did make sense !

    Thanks

    Merry Christmas !
