    Look into the ERTAC adjustable mount, that’s what I run with a ATACR 7-35, you can dial an extra 70 MOA with it for when shooting out over 2000yards and still be able to zero at 100 for when you just want to blow big holes in stuff LOL. You can also keep your scope more in the center of adjustment while shooting ELR.

    Like I mentioned before the 40 MOA base and scope adjustment gets used up real quick, without the ERTAC mount I was maxed out with my ATACR and had to hold over shooting out to 2500yards, and the 7-35 has way more adjustment than advertised, I think they under rate them so even if dialed way left or right you still have advertised adjustment.

    You can't go wrong with that optic choice and mount. Expensive but I doubt you would be disappointed.

    That setup will get you out to the 2025-2065 range maxed out on your scope no hold over on a 0 inclination target on a average weather day. Just some FYI, not sure if you plan on shooting further or not.

    Not planning to go further. That being said FFP with extra elevation due to drop downs in the reticle. Still 2000 is further than I would likely be shooting.

    Definitely food for thought.

    Shawn, ELR shooting, especially with the BMG is so fun. Here is a cut and paste of a log entry from dmay's range trip this past summer.

    ************************************************** *

    Range visit 193 - ELR shoot
    May 19, 2018 -Darrell May's range

    So the wind is hellish today. I tried the Big-Mac out to 1050 yards and was on in 2 shots. AB was spot on and my windage dope is pretty decent. I tried the C14 out to 1050 and on my third shot, I knocked the large steel off the target stand. Even in the ridiculous wind. Oorraaahh!
    At the mile, I'm on in three shots with Big-Mac. Elevation was 51 minutes with an up angle to the target of around 2 degrees. Wind dope was 5 minutes right for an almost center hit (17X5=85" hold right).
    At 2600 yards....on my 5th shot I was on at 108 dialled minutes elevation and a 10 minute hold right for windage (26X10=260" hold right). I'm now one of 3 who have made the hit at a mile and a half on Darrell's property. Steve, Darrell, and now me! Total rounds fired was 12 from the BMG and 3 from the C14.
    All in all, a great day of shooting. The weather was very hot and dry with 10 to 20 mile per hour wind gusts. Reading the wind was fun, but you really need the help of multiple spotters with the extreme distances we were shooting. There was a remote camera set up at the mile and a half which helped spot my hit. Steve recovered one of my misses and my hit bullet pieces at 2600 yards. Soooo cool!

    I met Karl from KS actions and Joel and Mike. Joel had the spotting remote camera set up. Very cool!

    *************************************************

    My "Big Mac" .50BMG has 40moa rail, 30moa in the Spuhr mount, and the ATACR 7-35x56 with 100 minutes of elevation. You can see I had 108 minutes of dialled elevation from a 300m zero at 2600 yards (with no hold over for elevation). I hope this gives you an idea of the geometry with the ATACR out to a mile and a half. I still had plenty of elevation turret left to continue out further.

    Oh, and my advice on your original question...go longer with the barrel. My Big-Mac has a 32" barrel.

    Thanx Andy.

    Lots of thoughts floating around. Need to narrow it down better.

    All this talk of "long range" shooting.

    At Urban Tactical in Brantford; They routinely shoot 50-BMG at twenty yards.

    Do they brag about 1 hole groups?

    If that’s all people can to shoot, then so be it. Land for shooting is tough to find down there.
