1,000 yard scope
 
HOw many MOA should a scope have to reach out to 1,000 yards?

If you are always going to be shooting longgg range then you could shim the base so any scope would work.

Make a huge difference what caliber you were shooting also.

depends on the caliber.

a lot of people who shoot longrange utilize 20moa canted scope bases so the zero is at the lower range of the scope adjustment. this gives a lot more adjustment.

Just fill in the blanks and let the program do the rest for you.

Is that a fixed power scope?

Because I'm old, thats why. We always had to shim bases. I forget all those new-fangled things. Sorry.
