Hi gang,

Today I shot my 14.5" M4 and was consistently hitting a 12" square plate at 647 meters with 25MOA dialed into the scope (an older Leupold Mark4 with one MOA per click turrets on elevation).

I have two 24" AR15s at home set up for varmint use, but would also like to stretch their legs a bit and see if I can tag that plate again at 647m.  Both have Nikon Buckmasters 6-18x40 target dot scopes on them in Armalite one-piece mounts (poor man's LaRue).  The scopes claim 50MOA of internal adjustment and are 1/8MOA per click.  I get six MOA of total adjustment per revolution.

I have not taken them out to the range to zero yet, but I am wondering if I should look at putting a 20MOA base under them before I do... I'm not sure how well these scopes will perform at or near their maximum adjustment limit.  I also have no guarantee that the scopes will zero right at the halfway point, leaving me 25MOA of adjustment up on the standard flat base.

Comments or suggestions?

Thanks.

Just saw that Nikon makes a one-piece mount, similar to the Armalite, with 20MOA built in...
