    What do you guys consider to be the best scope height?

    I know lots of FT shooters like a high Scope and some prefer a low scope height?

    So what would be the optimum height?

    :confused:

    its a world champion thing, we arent allowed to knnow:eek:

    Truth be told the best bet is to try your scope set up at different heights. While super high might work for Mr.d it may be too high for you?

    Hi Paul

    If you go for 2.5 inches it works out to 1/4 MOA per yard from 38 to 55 yards with Exacts. What's just as important is setting things up so you are comfortable.

    Hi buddy,

    I think I will be more comfortable with a higher scope (not as bendy as I used to be) should also help me out on the standers.

    Cheers

    P.S

    you shooting today?
