Ok people, somebody must know the answer to this. I just not bright enough to know.
I have zeroed my Kahles 624i as per instructions but now I have limited MOA available, as the elevation turret no longer turns three full turns. It will only do one and a quarter turns.
Took it back to dealership and they say, that happens once you set zero stop!
Why advertise it as having over eighty MOA (three full turns) when it wont do that, once zero stop is set?
I get the feeling that I must be doing something wrong or is it correct to limit the amount of turns.
Has anybody else had the same thing?

Do you have a 0moa rail? Might need to get a canted rail to get back some of the elevation you lost when you zeroed.
Just as a point of reference, my Gen 2 Razor 4.5-27x56 has 113moa and with a 20moa rail and 20moa mount I get 96moa usable.
Typically you divide the listed scope total MOA by 2 to get the usable range without additional rail or mount.

Install a 20 moa rail and zero again at 100 yds.
Our range is only 600 yards but I'm getting there easily at 14 -15 moa.

What caliber is the gun. If its a .22 then you use more moa's to zero than a larger caliber. For anything over 500 yds you need a 20 moa base or scope ring set. You will never get the full moa's after zero with any scope. I use 20 moa base for up to 1000yds and 40 moa base on my 6.5 prc for 1 mile

I guess I'm a little late to the party, but thought I'd mention that you can also reset the zero stops. Anyhow, if I remember correctly, there is only a stop in one direction, and that would normally prevent you from dialing down further than -0.4 mils. If you can't dial up enough, then it's not because of the zero stop. If you already have a 20 MOA base, that should get you to approximately 1000 m/yd or further, depending on caliber.
