Scope mount question

Recommended Posts

I just bought a 224 Vakryie and am new to precision rifle. I'm looking at scope mounts and trying to figure out what would be best to use, a standard or a 20 MOA mount. Could someone enlighten me on mounts and what the differences are. Thanks in advance!

Depends on your scope and distance you are shooting. After 500-600 yards the 20 MOA mount helps  a bit because a bullet will start dropping with distance.

I've ordered a Nikon FX1000 6x24. There's going to be a big learning curve for me on shooting long range, but there is a range near me that goes out to 600 yards and another within driving distance that has 1000 yards. I'm guessing for starting out I would be better off with a standard mount as I learn to stretch the distances out and develop my dope?

A 20 MOA scope mount is fine, you will only go in one direction from where you zero your rifle.
