Hello,
 
I have a 308 tactical rifle that I want to mount a Zeiss Conquest 4.5-14 X44 Mil-Dot with Target turrets.  However, before I order one, I have a couple of concerns.  According to Zeiss, this scope has roughly 42 MOA elevation adjustment.  Will this give me enought adjustment after zero to reach 500 yards?  The rifle has a 20 moa base.  Secondly, how many moa adjustment will I have with each revolution of the turret?  I have always used Leupold Mark 4 with M3, but after seeing the conquest, I feel the resolution is better.  Unfortunately, no dealers around me carry the Conquest with the target turrets.  Thanks in advance for your help.
 
Mike

That scope would give you plenty to get to 500, without that 20 moa base.

Assuming you don't lose an exorbitant amount trying to zero it. In which case, I'd be more concerned about the mounts, rings and rifle receiver.

Regardless, since you have that 20moa base, you're guaranteed to get to 500, even if it takes a lot of moa to zero the scope.

Thanks for the help.  I felt like I could get to 500 with this set-up, but I wanted another opinion before ordering the Conquest.  I finally got in touch with Zeiss and there are 79 clicks per revolution of the turret in case anyone else is curious.

Thanks again.

You should have no problem getting to 500 (barring very misaligned bases).  If you plan to shoot further at a later mount it may worth your while to get a 10MOA base (if available) or use Burris Signature Zee rings where you can use the inserts to achieve the same purpose.
