3x9x40 conquest --the specs say it has 64 inches of adjustment is that 32 in each side of zero? does that double at 200 yards? I am looking at trajectory in ballistics software and trying to figure out how far I can use the scope.

What are you shooting? If you sight in at1.5 to 2 inches high at 100 yards.......you should have a 200 yard zero. That's what I've done with my Browning BAR Safari II and Zeiss Conquest 3-9x40. I just need to take it to a 200 yard range to verify and tweak it some----Bboy623

I am shooting 7mm - 08 and plan on reloading using the Berger 168 VLD I want to challenge myself and push the maximum long distance accuracy of my rifle. I realize at some point you can't adjust for drop trying to figure that out with my set up. the scope is on a low deadnutz mount.

The adjustment range is 64MOA that translates to approximately 64 inches at 100yards and double that at 200 yards (triple for 300 yards and so on).

As far as how much adjustment you have on either side of your zero depends on how it is zeroed.  If you zero happens to be smack in the middle of the adjustment range, then yes it would be 32MOA up and 32 down.  However, that is unlikely to happen since on most rifles you will need to tweak the scope a little bit to fine tune your zero.

However, unless your bases/rings are grossly misaligned you should have enough adjustment for reasonable shooting distances.
