B&L Scope & Target Turrets

I have a 5.5x15 B&L that I'd like to have a little more user friendly for LR. It has just standard 1/4 clik turrets, would like to have target turrets put on. (called Bushnell this am and could'nt talk to a tech person, only sales putzes. Got frustrated after 5 minutes and hung up) I have done a search and nothing really comes up except for maybe gimmicky looking things.

Any suggestions outside of getting a different scope..

Thx

Nodak

Re: B&L Scope & Target Turrets

I have the same problem. I bought a Bushnell Elite 4200 planning to put Stoney Point knobs on it, only to find out the Stoney Point doesn't make them for Bushnell. If you do find something, please post it.

Re: B&L Scope & Target Turrets

Wideners carries factory bushnell knobs. They were discontinued a while back so you may get turrents that say 3000 or 4000.

They work very well and look great. A do it at home change too. I have them on my 4000 2.5X10 hunting rifle and have not had any problems in a couple of years of use.

Re: B&L Scope & Target Turrets

RBrowning: I tried to email ya but it was returned. I have emailed (hopefully someone who can help) at Bushnell to see if such a swap can take place. I followed up with Jerrys suggestion and called Wideners, he had nothing but said he used to just call up and order them. Therefore I am trying bushnell again.

Next MI shoot, I want in too. I got Crows email to late on Sat and had already made plans. I think there is definatly a LRH presence in MI. But I can't for the life of me figure out where ya can shoot past 300 yds cause of all the danged trees. Crow has a secret spot and hopefully we'll all hook up and have fun. If I figure this turret thing out, I'll advise via this post.

Jerry, thanks for the suggestion..

Re: B&L Scope & Target Turrets

Are you guys talking about Wideners Reloading and Shooting Supply in Johnson City, Tennessee? I'm in there about 2-3 times per week. If so, I'll get the scoop and post it.

Just let me know for sure,

Take care
