I have a rem 700 in 300 win mag. I bought a new Zeiss conquest HD 3-15x50. I mounted the scope on a mark 4 1pc base which is a 15moa base. With the base, the scope bottoms out at about 4 in high at 100yds. I changed out the base with a Weaver base and now it tops out about 4 inches low at 100yds. What now?

It's far more common than you'd think. I had to go that route with a H&R Ultra Varmint that needed 20 MOA of correction. It's a good system.

Many hunting scopes do not have a lot of internal adjustment.  A base with +15 MOA is a lot most  are only +10 MOA or flat. So long as your shots are not past about 500 yds a flat base should be selected for most scopes.

Can't zero it with a 15 degree base, or with a 0 degree base.
It sounds like the scope is broken, or a zero stop is stuck.
How much vertical adjustment does the scope have, when actually shooting?

Or the Weaver base is out of spec.  It would not be all that uncommon.
