Thanks for the quick reply

What I meant to ask was:
What is the high point (in inches) for a 1000 yard shot? At what yardage does the bullet reach the high point? I guess I'm curious about what path the bullet follows after it reaches its high point.

rimshot, this is for a 175gr SMK at 2700 fps .505 BC at standard conditions. Not sure what the specs are for the round in question tho.

Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1

Nightforce is such a solid combo of reticle, available elevation, glass that is good enough to shoot at the longest range you can dial. Nightforce has bullet proof construction that can handle the incidental horse rolling or some other rodeo action. -- bigngreen

The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
