    Hi guys,

    I recently bought an ssg69 PIV with the 16 inch barrel. I put a swarovski z5 3.5-18 on it. Also mounted using 1 inch steyr rings.

    Scope has 58 inches of elev adjustment but is running out past 400m when I am shooting.

    Can anyone shed some light on this, is it no good past 400m ? Or is it just the scope running out of elevation as I should get further than 400m with the scope. I understand an ssg69 has 20moa built into the top of the receiver.

    Could it be the way the scope is mounted ? I took it off once using the quick detachable wing nuts ?

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Cheers

    Dips :bs:

    Check another thread here in this forum about 44 MOA sight bases. That should fix you right up.

    I agree, you either need tapered bases or a scope with a greater amount of adjustment.
