    I tried to find out how far a projectile drops if fired exactly horizontal but didn't have a lot of luck my guess is a bit less than half the total adjustable. Use an angled base and you will get a bit back. Will probably get you to 1000yds though.

    IIRC that's a full turn & won't happen with a zero-lock....can't see my 2-12 x42 at the moment so not much help sorry.

    Yeah thats what I'm thinking, 20moa full turn but the z stop will soak up atleast 2+ so maybe 17.5 ?

    Now Phil ,
    if you had proper turrets that would be about 5.1 maybe .2 odd mil,
    I dunno anything about the vx6 but that can't be right surely?
    My math must be wrong.

    You can now get a Zero Lock turret that will give you 2 rotations, advertised as 38moa.

    5mm would get you about 15 feet past 10 chains or 22 furlongs (all those numbers are made up)

    Isn't it ridiculous in this day and age we still have multiple forms of measurement.
