Re: Custom Turret Zero

What are you using the gun for?

Most people with Magnums use a 200 yard zero.

I am going to have one made and I am thinking of a 300 yard zero but I use the rifle at longer ranges.

You could also experiment, white bandage take and a fine point sharpie make a great field expedient custom turret. Go out and verify drop in your intend operating envelop. Mark those drop on the tape wrapped around your turret. Experiment with different zero. See which one you like better. A lot cheaper than buying multiple turrets.
