So I'm torn on the new .308.

Factory loads: Nosler Accubond 165gr @ 2,700 fps out of a 24" 1:10 barrel.

Custom loads: Nosler Accubond 165gr @ 2,780 fps out of a 24" 1:10 barrel.

My handloads have a 42 moa (35ft) drop @1,000y with a 100y zero w/ a 1.5" HOB. My new scope has an 80 moa range, 40 up and 40 down.

Do I really want to put an MOA canted mount on this thing even though I've got 30 MOA in hash marks on the etched reticle? I'll be 20" low if I dope it, but have enough marked hold over to be 23 feet (seriously) high at 1,000y.

Deploy MOA reticle SFP. I normally dial range and windage at distance, but I'm just not sure how often I'll be shooting at 1,000y.

I liked the look of that scope so much, I bought one this afternoon. No free knives for me, they were out.

I would put the 20 MOA mount on. It’s not any more cost, (Unless you want it to be) but it’ll give you more options.

I threw a zero moa on it to see if I liked the same high mount I have on the .223 wylde. Realized I didn't like it at all on either rifle. So now I've got to pay attention to the angle by dropping to a lower mount due to the length of the scope. I've only got 1/2" of clearance from the rail to the bell/sunshade/cap, which the sunshade and cap add another 2.25" of length.

Edit: I was also looking at 10 MOA mounts.
