Hi has anybody tyed differant scope hights and how it affects clicks at long and short ranges
you will see a lot of the guys using riser rails rather than mounts this is to get the scope to a height where it takes advantage of the flattest part of trajectory. This both reduces number of clicks between ranges and means that the opportunity to register a hit even if your a yard or two out on the longest targets increases.
Yes high scope gives less clicks at longer distances and more at closer distances.
The oppose happens with a very low scope.
You are basically moving the same trajectory curve closer or further away from you.
ft scope height
So if you are playing the long game targets 30 to 55 yards the higher the better would you say if you miss range
It's comfort and head position that are just as important as rangefinding. Too high can upset the balance and centre of gravity.
Riser rails are all about rifle fit and comfort, reducing a couple of clicks at long range isn't what it's all about.
Bear in mind that if you fit a riser rail for the scope, you'll probably need cheek piece extensions as well.
hight - slope/angle
Would anybody know the slope or angle needed for a 40mm high scoperail? lets say we shoot jsb exact.
I quite agree, I have a 28mm AJP riser on my Ripley to get my head in a more comfortable position i.e. more upright. Did not really find it made the longer distance clicks that much different.
15yd to 25 are 38 clicks ( use the lines beneath the verticle for the closer ones) and 35yd to 55 is the same number of clicks. 25-35 are covered by 1 click so they all stay the same, which I set to 0.
Depends on the scope, the distance between mounts and off course the rifle.
So would there be a way in knowing the slope for a bullpup steyr scoperail for a march with third eye dovetail mounts, with the hight of the rail to the underside of the mount being 40mm at the breech end? My best guess is 0.5 ° or 30MOA. Should be near that I think.
