    Rifle Scopes Average Usable elevation on PST 5-25

    Hi guys, newbie here. I have recently zeroed my pst 5-25 on my tikka ctr and found that I have about 10.5 mils left of usable elevation. I was honestly a little surprised that it took 15 mils to zero. Is this normal? The ctr has a zero Moa base. Given 25 total mils of elevation and dividing...

    Rifle Scopes S&B 4-16x42 Elevation Range?

    The single turn S&B 4-16x42 has 130cm of elevation adjustment but does anyone know the total adjustment in the scope? Trying to research whether a 4-16 will have enough adjustment to go to 1000 yards flat rail or with a 20 moa rail on a hot day. The adjustment is there but will the full...

    Rifle Scopes Nightforce Zero Stop and no elevation marks?

    I saw a Nightforce 5.5x22 with a zero stop for the first time today. It didn't have the elevation marks so you know what revolution you are on. I was just wondering if this is normal and how everyone likes it? I know it has the zero stop but I would still like the elevation marks on the turret.

    Rifle Scopes Bushnell 3200 10X Mil Dot Real World Elevation?

    I have two of the Bushnell 10X Mil Dot scopes, and out of curiosity I decided to check how much internal elevation travel the reticles actually have. They are advertised as having 100 MOA of travel, quite a bit for a 1" tube scope. Testing my own, one has only 72 MOA, and the other has 80...

    I have a 3.5x15 Nightforce NXS mounted on my Encore 300 whisper. I only have about 25moa of elevation left. Does anyone know of a pic. rail made with extra MOA in it that fits a t/c encore or is there something different I can do with my mounting? I want to be able to shoot to 300 to 350yds...

    Rifle Scopes New Mark4 60015 doesn't have 65MOA elevation adj.

    I have a new Leupold Mark 4 60015 and I was shooting today. I had it zeroed before... didn't think anything of it wanted to adjust the POI down and I was stopped. I was only able to turn it 1 click down. I can turn it 47 MOA up and that is it. WTF???

    Rifle Scopes USO Elevation

    Quick question here: On the SN-3 series with the 1/10 mil EREK, once your elevation is maxed out, which I believe is 18 mils with a 30mm tube and 21 mils with a 34mm tube, does the turrett stop spinning? Thanks, Mike

    Rifle Scopes Elevation line on NXS question.

    When I got my 5.5-22 NXS, the elevation knob was set at the 4th line (40 M.O.A.) It seems kind of stupid to have 40 minutes already used up when they advertise 100 moa elevation adjustment. I wanted to see if this was a common thing before I bother them about it. Thanks in advance

    Rifle Scopes Schmidt Bender PM2 3-12 MOA elevation clicks

    I recently purchased a Schmidt Bender PM2 3-12 scope with 1/4 MOA turrets, but without an owner's manual. I have to admit to being rather confused about why the elevation clicks don't align with the lines depicted on the turret itself. Can anyone please post a link to a webpage discussing...

    Rifle Scopes Why does 20 MOA base not give 20 MOA Elevation?

    I've bought a Nightforce 12-42X56 Benchrest scope for my new 6.5x47 Lapua F-Class gun. Scope spec'd for 40 MOA elevation range. I'll need about 29 MOA to get to to 1K with a Berger 130 from a 100Y zero. Gun still being built and will have 20 MOA tapered base installed. Just for grins , I...

    Rifle Scopes MOA rails and unused elevation adjustment

    I put a Farrell 20 MOA rail on my Remy 700 .308 with a Falcon 4-14 FFP,and at a zero 100 yards I am using about 25% of my elevation adjustment. Is there a solution for this? Or just a result of the base being so thick?
