Sight Height?

Big Pard

Hey guys, I am trying to figure out a drop chart for my 7mm Ultra Mag with handloads and was wondering what value I should put for sight height? I have a Remington LSS with a 3x9x50mm Burris Fullfield II using Leupold bases and Leupold high rings. Is there a general value for 50mm scopes? If not, what is the best way to measure for sight height?

Use a set of calipers and measure from center of bore to center of scope. This measurement will give you your sight height.

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
