I have been on the forum a while, but just looking around, seeing a lot of good information.
I have a question that I have not been able to find the answer to. I have a Nikon Buckmasters 6-18x40 BDC on Rem 700 7mm Mag, sited in dead on at 200 yds. I took it out a couple months ago to try to stretch my shooting some. Everything was going great until I wanted to go out past 400 yds which to me doesn't seem that far. When I tried to adjust my scope up to shoot farther, it would only make it 5.5 MOA above zero. My question is, why is there so little adjustment available in my scope?
The base and mounts for the scope, I believe, are the typical 0 MOA base and mounts. I just don't see how there could be so little adjustment available even with these mounts. Is there something I should be looking for, or have it mounted different? I know there are 20+ MOA bases but I was just wondering if there was something I could do to extend the MOA I have now before I had to go out and get new mounts?
Thanks in advance.
