20 moa base for 200yd 22lr?

Postby jgalt » Sun Apr 01, 2018 7:56 pm

I assume it would depend on both the scope in question (haven't decided yet) and the zero used, but should I be looking at a 20 moa base if I'm going to be shooting my 22lr out to 200 yards?

Well, 200 meters, since that's that they've got at OGC...

My scopes that I have tried have worked to 200 but a 20 moa base will make sure .

You will need approximately 24moa of elevation from 25 to 200 yards. Most scopes will have that much elevation, so it depends on how much you shoot at 25 vs 200. ;)
