Possible POSITIVE error on my Nikon 4-16x50

I just eye bore sighted my rifle at approx 25-30 yds to get the crosshairs to match up with my bore at a specific target. Nikons website states this scope has 40 MOA internal adjustment but after going through all the clicks I had after eye sighting I have an additional 44 clicks up elevation to shoot at further targets and an additional 15 clicks down elevation which brings me closer to 60 MOA elevation. I would imagine that is a good thing right or did I possibly do something wrong. I have not tested the windage adjustment to see if it the same. Have companies been known to make errors like this before. I DID buy my scope from a reputable Nikon dealer. This is from Nikons website. If this is a mistake on their part I am very happy. What kind of range can I get with a 7mm rem mag 140g TSX with 43+- MOA
