With the 20 MOA base or rings, that will put you 20 minutes high or 20" high at 100 yards. Run your ballistics program and see where you need to be at 100 for the 1000 yard zero and start there.

We suggest you boresight your rifle at a 50-yard target, so that you can see the target right through the barrel. Make sure the gun is well-supported by sandbags or a clamp-style rest. Then, using your windage and elevation adjustments, move the center of the reticle until it aligns with the target. Start with elevation. You will probably have to move down about 20 moa from center.
Note the 20 moa rings work by moving up the back end of your scope relative to the front, but you still want POA = POI at 100 yards or whatever distance you select for your zero. You will just be using some of the lower half of your elevation range to get the POI (point of impact) correct at 100 yards.
When you're "on" at 50 yards, then move out to 100 yards, and adjust again. You should be within an inch or so.
