Gentlemen (and Ladies),

 

Most shooting is done between 100 and 300yds with an occsional shot out to 400 with a 22-250.  My question is, will a 14" drop at 300yds be enough for a 20 MOA base or will my scope always be well above mechanical zero?

 

Thanks in advance,

 

scoot

No need for any increase in rear base height. Most 22-250 set ups are about 40 clicks at 500 with a 200 yd zero. see previous post on clicks.

 you are not shooting a mortar.  Most people just "dope" the dropage.  You start adding a lot of base and stuff,  then you mess up your close range shooting. If you are zeroed at 200 then you will be ~5" low at 300 and ~15" low at 400 and ~ 2" high at 100.

 

I don't have a chart to zero at 250 yards, but you want to stay at under 3" high at 100 yards. 'Cause other wise you will blow a lot of close shots.  You will forget to aim low or remember and take too long.
