I've noticed that nearly everyone shooting NLR22 is adding a 25 MOA scope base (or some variation) Is this even necessary with scopes having 60 MOA adjustment? If zeroed at 50 yards.

Absolutely necessary? Probably not, but maybe desirable because many of the clubs/matches have informal shoots that reach beyond the 100 yards that is the max range for the formal match.

Also, putting external elevation adjustment on the scope allows you to get closer to the middle of the lens when sighted in at the midpoint of the ranges you typically shoot. It also keeps you away from the extreme limits of the adjustment knobs when dialing for drop at longer range. I use the Burris rings to get 15 MOA of external adjustment on my silhouette rifles, for example, for those reasons.
