Hi everyone.
 
I have a question about moa bases. If your scope has about 140-150 moa of elevation do you really need a moa base? Lets say on center you have 70 moa of elevation, how far can that reach with a 0 moa base compaired to a 20 or 30 moa base? It seems to be that the 1 peice moa rings/bases are $100+ over a standard redfield setup. So with a scope with that much travel are you going to get your moneys worth out of the moa bases?

I might not have been very clear with my question. The hypothetical 70 moa of ajustment remaining is zeroed at 100 yards with a standard base. Knowing that much, how far our can you get with the 70 moa remaining? And how much further could you get with the moa bases?

Use a ballistic calculator and it will tell you how much adjustment you will need
