I tried to shoot at 1 mile this am. I phone called for 65 moa. I dialed up to 60 and that was all the nightforce had in it. It already has a 20 moa rail that came on the gun. What can I do to get just 5-10 more moa out of it? Would taller rings help? If I put a 40 moa base then I will have to get rid of the big pictanni rail deal.

Can I ask you what caliber is your Savage 110??

I too, shoot a SAVAGE 110 FCP, 300 Win Mag.

What is your zero range? Seems like a shorter zero(100yds) would call for more elevation. Also, a marine friend of mine puts tape under the back of his scope.

zero range is 200 yds, that wont make a difference, as all the way up on the scope is all the way up. Inorder to keep the factory 20 moa base i think im going to jerry rig it and bolt a badger 22 moa rail on it thus giving me in essence a 42 moa base, we will see how that looks/works, i think i may be the factory rail as well

What model NF scope do you have?

I had a Savage 110 BA .338 LM for a couple of years. Loved the rifle. It really got
me into shoot LR/ELR.

Two things that helped me shoot 1500, 1760, 2000, 2300 yards.

1. NF NXS 5.5-22x50mm scope. This has an internal adjustment of 100 MOA. 50 up / 50 down.
2. I had Cameron Murphy make me a custom titanium rail with a 40 MOA cant.

Plenty of adjustment for 1760 and out. I believe when I shot 2300 yards I only had to go down 3 marks on my reticle.

I no longer have the 110 BA. Had to rob Peter to pay Paul for my custom SAC .338 LM. I have the NF ATACR which has a bit more magnification and elevation.

Good luck.

Couple of LR/ELR vids I produced if you're interested.

I use Berger 300gr. OTM Hybrids for both the 110BA
as well as my new stick. By far the best results with them.
You can always single feed if they won't fit in your mag.

Thanks for viewing and the kind words. Nice rifle but I no longer have it.
Had a custom .338 LM built by SAC / Mark Gordon so I sold it.

How do I get to that awesome video that you mentioned??

Remember; with a 7 MM, I am limited to a 180 Grain bullet
