Very good answer!!!
We use angled bases and scopes with 75-105 MOA adjustment to reach 1000 yards, 1 mile, or 1.5 miles with our 50BMG target rifles.
Angle bases do exactly like he says above - helps to keep scopes centered in adjustment- or allow for extreme range adjustment - 100 yards to 1760 yards with a 20 minute base.
