CDS Turrets

I have a 4-12-50 on my 7mm STW right now but like the idea of being able to make quicker adjustmens in the field. I was contemplating sending it in for their new turret but has anyone tried the CDS? Also contemplated the huskemaw but for the price of that i can get to leupolds.

Re: CDS Turrets

The CDS is a easy to use fool proof system. It can only be rotated once so you cant get lost in your turns. The only downside is you max out at about 650-700 yards depending on your zero.

Re: CDS Turrets

I just set up a cds system for a friend. he was shooting a 300 wsm. his max range was 700 yards. I shimmed the scope ring with some 35 mm negative, i think two pieces. the system shot withen an inch or so for him at the various ranges, so Ya i supose it worked!

Re: CDS Turrets

That is good to know...I generally set it up 2 inches high at 100 putting me with 160 accubonds or 168 bergers zeroed at 250..with these loads running at 3200 fps i should have no problem getting 700 yards..When you purchase it do you then contact leupold with the info and they run all the data? I like the idea of this over teh swaro turret..thnx

Re: CDS Turrets

Yes, you call leupold with the following data:

Avg temp, Avg Alt, muzzle velocity, bullet type, weight, zero range, etc. You will also need the serial number on the scope.

They engrave the turret and then send it to you via ups. Mine took about 2 1/2 - 3 weeks total to arrive. I'm going shooting this weekend, but based on lining the cap up with the MOA turret, it looks spot on.

Re: CDS Turrets

Thanks for the info. I may have to sell my saro and pick up a couple of these one for the saum and the .270. Question though i unfortunately live a see level so when i hunt here up to say 400 feet i am not to concerned about it out to say 500 yards. However going out of state has always made me nervous. Obviously the eleveation can be up to 8-10k and colder. I know i can order a turret just for this application as well however i will still need to zero at home so how off would it be at say 500-700 yards at 8k and colder..thnx
