I a SWFA 16x  on a Savage FVSR (.22LR).  Zero MOA factory base, TPS Super low rings. Properly mounted. 

Zeroed at 50yds, it only has 38MOA of elevation adjustment indicated top go (about 2 & 1/2 turns). I couldn't even reach steel plate at 200yds. Is that about right for these scopes?  If I wanted to get a 40MOA base I could have used any scope, but I thought those had more usable elevation adjustment.

Good question. I didn't count the number of revolutions up (several) to get it to zero at 50 yards. What I do know is I used up most of the total adjustment just to get it to zero. Had a Bushnell 6500 Elite on it with no such issue so I know it's not the rifle. SWFA has had the scope. Girl called me to say that I must have the scope mounted wrong and just wants to send it back to me as I sent it in.  Mounted perfectly. Base is mounted flush and so are rings.

Check the total adjustment and report back.

That's fine, but SWFA has the scope. 

In any event, having 38MOA left after zeroing is what it is regardless if there's 90 or 100MOA of adjustment down. Doesn't help me out much. Just wanted to know how much upward adjustment is typically left on these scopes with a zero MOA mount to better know if SWFA is just giving me brush off or not.
