There's another way. Ken Farrell Industries makes Picatinny rails that are angled to give scopes vertical reach in bushel baskets. Farrell rails are angled downward from rear to front. He machines them in increments from 0 minutes of angle (dead flat) to 40 minutes of angle, with 10-, 15-, 20-, and 30-minutes of angle bases in between. When you mount your scope, it's pointing down at the objective end, which forces you to raise it higher, which puts your reticle higher without touching a dial. It's simplicity itself. You want to shoot at 1,000 yards? Ken Farrell will get you there.
