I was out shooting my Savage 11 LRP in 6.5 Creedmoor yesterday. This was the first time going out over 800 yards. I went out to 1200 yards and the estimated come up was 11.5 Mills from a 100 yard zero. I ran out of adjustment at 9.5 Mills. The scope is the Vortex Viper PST FFP 6-24x50. It has 19 Mills of internal adjustment. I have a 20 moa base and it is zeroed at 100 yards. Is it common to use 9.5 Mils of my elevation to zero the scope at 100 yards leaving only 9.5 Mils left for elevation adjustments? I ended up having to use 2 Mills holdover to make my shots. I was hoping to get out past 14-1500 yards eventually but am afraid this scope and base set up wont make it. Any help is greatly appreciated. Also shot my .308 Remington 700 at the same distance. Has a 20 moa base with a Vortex VIPER HS LR 4-16X50 FFP. It had plenty of elevation adjustment to get to 1200 yards and being a 308 needed more come up than the 6.5 did. Only difference is the 308 scope is in moa with 68 moa of internal adjustment. Come up at 1200 yards was 43 moa. Elevation above sea level was 6900' with both rounds shooting about 2700 fps. Thanks again for the help.
