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.
