    I'm currently in the process of getting the final touches on my rifle. I bought a leupold mk4 ert with the Horus reticle and 0.1 mil turrets. After I zero at 100 I only have 3.5 mils of rotation before it bottoms out and that's with a 20 moa base and low rings. Any input would be appreciated that's.

    Side note it is a Rem 700 SPS tac. 308

    That sure doesn't seem right. I swear I am not trying to be an ass, was the rail installed in the right direction? I can't think of anything else ...

    It was and not to be an ass either but if it wasn't it would hang over past the bolt. Would a 40 moa base be worth the money just to get maybe 5.5 mils out of it?

    EGW base?

    Paying no attention to zero, have you checked to see how much total elevation you have in the scope?

    I would advise the same thing as Jeff. Test the scope for total elevation travel from stop to stop.

    You're bottoming out adjusting down? Which model of ER/T do you have? My M5-A has a zero stop.
