it depends on the moa build into the scope, most scopes will go to 500-600 yds. 20 moas are usually used on 1000 yd long range even if the scope has the built in turret clicks for it. nothing comes for nothing and this is done to preserve the 60% or so better optical quality in the center of the scope. if a 20 moa is used and the scope center when it is screwed back for use in the 100 yd range the edge of the scope will be used. some scopes built for long range do not have the reticles mechanically centered such that they come into center as moa is dialed in to put them into the optimal viewing field. you need to find out about the scope you are using. /

as a side note this is the reason placing one end down on a mirror doesn't work to find the mechanical center.

if you are shooting at 600 plus yards, many factors now come into play not ordinarily a problem, and the cant will be the least of your problems.
