Trying to decide which kind of rail mount to use. Flat or 20 MOA?
 
I purchased a Kahles CL 4-12x52 Multizero and I'm planning to mount it on a Remington SS 5R Milspec .308 using Warne tactical rail and Maxima rings. This particular scope model has an elevation adjustment range, according to the specs, of approximately 43 inches at 100 yards. If I trust my math, this works out to an overall adjustment range of approximately 42 MOA. I'm further assuming that the scope will sight in at 100 yards at approximately the mid point of this adjustment range, thereby leaving about 20 MOA of adjustment in either direction.
 
I mostly will be shooting 100 and 200 yards to begin with but would like to try my hand at longer distances as well in the future. If I use the flat rail, I should be able to get to 600 yards ( approx. +13 MOA) with the remaining elevation adjustment on the scope, but would likely not be able to get much beyond 750 yards before I would run out of elevation adjustment. I've thought about going with a 20 MOA rail to begin with, but I'm somewhat hesitant as I think it would put me too close to the scopes adjustment limit when initially sighting in at 100 yards.
 
I'm beginning to think I may be better off forgetting about the 20 MOA rail and limiting my shooting to the 600 yard and under range with this scope/rifle combination as the longest range I have easy access to is 600 yards.
 
Can some with more experience double check my math/logic and pass on your recommendations.
 
Thanks...

Can anyone at least confirm if the assumed/proposed calculations are either right or wrong? Thanks.
