Problem with nxs hs turret

my scope is zeroed perfectly and numbers 1 through 5 match perfectly, but after that the line lines start to not match up. by the number 10 it's off by about half a line. has anyone else had this problem? I believe its tracking correctly and that it is a problem with the lines on the cap
rather than the adjustment value because the lines get closer again and by the time I'm back to 0 or 20 minutes basically 1 revolution. I called nightforce and of course they will take care of it but I have to send it in. from the sounds of it they have not heard of this problem.

Re: Problem with nxs hs turret

Of all the NXS scopes I have owned I have never seen this. But they were all 10 moa turrets. Is this a new HS 20 moa turret?

Re: Problem with nxs hs turret

sounds like it is Jeff...

I own 3 of the same model and haven't seen it on mine.

Why not ask them to just mail you a new elevation turret and try that first ?

OOps. re-reading I see that now.

I would shoot a 100 yard group and then crank it up at least 20 moa and shoot again using the same point of aim. Should be 20 x 1.047" or 20.94" higher on the paper now. Use a big piece of cardboard and go for 30 moa too. At 30 moa up it should be 31.41" higher. Then you will know if it is tracking properly. If not you can tell them this info when you send it in.

Re: Problem with nxs hs turret

I will be confirming that it tracks correctly and if it does I will wait until after season. If it doesnt I gueas I will have to send it in. my first questionwas if they c ok uld just send me a turret Nd he said unfortunately no because they would need to make sure there was nothing else wrong. He said they would make sure that portion of adjustment wasnt off somhow etc. basically to help the customer fully they wouldnt want to do it halfway and leave room for any error. I will keep you guys inFormed

Took it over to defensive edge this morning and had shawn carlock look at it. He agreed that it appears the adj value is correct and its just the engraving in the cap that is off.
