    i know its been discussed but i'd like to bounce my thought process off people who have already done this.

    i am looking at vortex hs-t 4x16, it has 75moa of adjustments. its going on an AR10, 18" barrel, realistically 800yd setup, 1000yd is pushing my hopes and dreams. doing a little math i looks like i will run out of adjustment around 800yds (30moa)-900 yds(40moa) depending on where the "zero" is, so i am leaning towards a 20moa cantilever scope mount.

    how far off of of the middle do scope typically run? i have mounted a few in my life but never paid any attention, as long as they were minute of deer accurate i am usually happy.

    with a scope with 75moa of adjustments (32.5 up. 32.5 down) i don't think a 20moa mount would be a problem. . . am i thinking along the correct path?

    also, is there a good mount with the slope that isn't $150+?

    thanks

    Your reasoning sounds good.

    It's going to depend on where you set your zero and whether you plan to dial elevation (it sounds like it) or hold over, but I think most people decide they want a little extra elevation from their mount.

    ETA: I missed your other question. It's not exactly what you're looking for, but Brownells has a Picatinny riser with varying cants at a pretty reasonable price. You'd still need rings, and I don't know if it will push the scope far enough forward for your liking.

    Thanks for the response. I have been looking at the vortex mounts, Burris pepr, and others, I just have a hard time spending $200 on a larue. I'll look into the riser
