Re: Luepold custom shop or Kenton Industries for turrets?

I shot my own drop measurements at my 400 yd. range.

Drop chart. - Georgia Outdoor News Forum

When I got my custom turret back from Vortex I went back to the range to test it.

Testing new Vortex custom turret. - Georgia Outdoor News Forum

After I had the arc of my bullet going down range proved to be accurate I went to Wyoming to hunt and while I was there I shot out to the limit of my turret which was 900 yds. and it was dead nuts accurate at every range.

Field test: Vortex Viper 6-24x50mm PST MOA FFP scope. - Georgia Outdoor News Forum

PS: I gave the info for drops in inches plus temperature and elevation above sea level and the humidity. When I called Vortex to order the turret they adjusted all the other info to match my info and the arc my bullet makes going down range. In 5 days I had my custom turret and boy did it prove to be perfectly accurate.

I knew it was right because when I got it, I counted the clicks. I never supplied bullet or bc or weight as far as I know.

+1 I've done this myself several times, not saying the Kenton isnt good but you can do the same exact thing with Leupold and they do a great job. Also if you buy a CDS scope they will send you a custom cap for free engraved to your specs.

Has anyone used the Leupold Custom shop turrets?
Will Leupold just send you a turret or do you have to order it at the same time as the scope?

Thanks.
I was under the impression that Leupold custom turrets were made by Kenton industries in the first place. I very well could be wrong though.
