Can anyone tell me how far i'll be able to shoot with my new rifle. I am putting a vari-xiii 8.5-25 x 50 tactical on it. My problem is i can only afford standard Leupold rings and bases just now. I would like a 20 MOA Picatinny rail and tactical rings but they dont come cheap in the sticks! Over 230 pounds in Scotland!


I just wondered how far i'll be able to reach WITHOUT the extra 20 MOA?


Many thanks.


P.S. Its a 30mm tube

A lot depends on your specific rifle and your shooting conditions. In other words, are your scope base mounting holes drilled true to your bore?

As I am not sure the exact adjustment range of your scope I can't give you a good answer. If you get your scope mounted up and can let me know how many MOA you have free on your turret after getting it zeroed (I also need the zero range) I can give you a detailed answer. Make sure you count the actual clicks you have free in elevation not just calculate it, all scopes vary a bit in manufacturing tolerances. Also, be aware some scopes have windage creep when you get to the very ends of the adjustment range, you will have to test and see if that is true in your case. It may be that the last couple of clicks aren't really usable.

If you can get me that info (and ammunition data) I would be happy to get you a calculated ballistics chart. (I will just plug the data into Night Force's Exbal software.) If you are interested in long distance shooting you may find that software well worth the money.
