    Is a 20 moa scope base really needed if most of your shots are 300 yds or under? Or would you opt for moa optic rings? Just target shooting, btw.

    no. unless your using a very highend scope like schmittbender nightforce or something its actually a detriment due to most scopes in the under 1k$ range dont have consistant click to click adjustment in the edges of their adjustment range.

    canted bases arent needed unless your shooting at very very long ranges in the 800+ distances using something like 308 223 30-06 as most scopes dont offer enough adjustment to get that far

    for 300-600yards its not an issue
