Re: Kenton Turret Vs Leupold CDS Turret

Purchaed a Kenton Custom turret for a Leopold 6.5-20 VX3. This company allows you to send them your ballistics and they will cut a custom turret. Mine was a 7mm mag for Berger`s 168gr vld. Tested at ranges out to 850 yds and yardage marking pretty acccurate within 2 " of bullet drop.

I was a little discouraged that I would have to send them off to Leupold and pay extra $$$ to get retrofitted for the CDS Dials, however I recently fumbled across Kenton Industries who offer a turret that is a little more expensive but I wouldn't have to send off my scope, they claim that it fits right on the scope once i remove the bottle cap style turret and reveal the coin slot under neath. This past season I had a kill out to 550 Yards with my 270wsm and one of these scopes. I just want to be able to dial in the yardage for my custom reloads instead of counting clicks. I have a friend who already uses the CDS and loves it, but I would like to hear from someone who has used the Kenton Turret. I really hate to have to send my scope off for the retrofitting, so I'd like to get some opinions... Pros and Cons for both CDS and Kenton.

Thanks in advance for your help

I got the Kenton for my .243 and it works great. Will be ordering one for my .270 and soon as I order a new Chrony. Reminder...Chrony's are not bulletproof!!!!!
