This is the scope that I want to top off my 24" barrel AR platform 308 build. It will be my first FFP scope. I want to sight it in at 200 and hopefully be able to shoot up to 600. I plan on using Talley Tactical Picatinny-Style Rings. I am leaning toward the EBR-2C MRAD Reticle. It has 19 mrad of elevation. Will that be enough to get me to 600 yards with a 200 zero? Is this the right scope for the price range? The right reticle? Thanks in advance.
A 200 yard zero should be almost the same as a 50 yards zero. I have one of the 6-24's with the FFP, think you'll like it.
The best way to setup for long range shooting is get some ballistics software. For you iPhone or Android, there is a program called Shooter. You can enter all your data, and their is a bullet selection library in the App, if you don't see your particular bullet, you can enter all the data.
You will need to know your velocity, so run some rounds over the chronograph. Once everything is in, test it at different ranges for click adjustments on the turrets. You can fine tune the app for that particular load.
Then once you have a target, laser range find it and shoot it. I use a Kestrel for my long range shooting after ranging the distance. The Kestrel I have has the built in wind meter, but need to be cautious with using it as the wind where you are shooting from and on the way to the target usually changes. But it gives me all the data I need and automatically adjusts for temperature, barometric pressure, etc etc.
