Re: Changing regular turrets to M1's

It is about $90 for single turret, I would stick w/B&C, BUT I favor reticules w/lots of info.Example , my son tops ridge, speed goats take off running, He is prone I'm reading yardage, they stop at 530 , he uses last hash as reference and drills goat.That is purpose of B&C. The hash was 500 and post 550, he new where to hold,14 yrs.old.Example 2, 600 yrd. shot, hash as aiming point, nice and small+2.6 moa, this is for my 257. I AM GOING TO PUT A 6-20 TYPE SCOPE in future for varmits, give this scope to son

Re: Changing regular turrets to M1's

It cost 126 to have both turrets replaced with m1 turrets
I have done two scopes in as many years also have had three CDS turrets installed
they run just short of 90 each
Both track just fine
I would suggest a cds turrets based on the low magnication of your scope
m1 turrest would look odd and large
Call them up

When I or either of my sons gets a different scope one of the things we check is what a scope is actually doing versus believing each click is 1/4" at 100 yds. Take a LARGE piece of paper, set up at 100 yds. with your bull dead center. Shoot dead on at the bull and assuming you've hit the bull a number of times then crank up your scope up (let's say 60 clicks), Shoot a number of rounds until you are comfortable, then we turn the scope down 120 clicks (60 down should put you at your original zero) shoot a number of rounds again until you are comfortable. If each click is worth 1/4" then theoretically you should have the top group exactly 15" higher than the bull and the same 15" lower than the bull on the bottom group. Both groups will in my experience be very close distant apart from the bull.
Let's say your groups are 14.25" from the bull. Take 14.25" devided by 60 clicks and you get .2375. Your scope is not a .25" per click but a .2375" per click. Put that number into a ballistic calculator and you will have a much more accurate drop chart. This diff. really shows up when you start cranking up to shoot beyond 500 yds.
PS: I looked up my son's info on his Leo 4-14X50 30mm tube and it was the above example I gave you.

Re: Changing regular turrets to M1's

Cowboy thanks for the tip i really appreciate it. I'm going to send it in the next couple days. If I can get away from work.
As I walk through the valley of the shadow of death I will fear nothing cause my rifle is with me.
