Custom turrets for VX-3 CDS?

I recently put a new Leupold VX-3 with CDS dial on my 7mm Rem Mag. I have not ordered my custom dial for it yet. I was wondering if there were other companies that offer custom turrets that can be fitted to the VX-3? If so, are they better? Or what is some advantages to the other offerings?

    I went with the custom turret from, "Kenton Industries". Unfortunately, they are backed up 2-3 weeks at this time. Check them out. Are they better??...I don't know.

    i know this isnt really what you are asking but ill give you advice from my experience. I have read about several people getting turrets from leupold and them not working out the same as their own drop charts. Well I just assumed it was incompetence on the shooters end. I ordered a turret from Leupold for my 338 and it was WAY off! so I called Leupold and told them about it. they said to send in my drop chart and they will cut my turret according to that and its right on now. SO if you have Leupold do one I reccommend sending them your own chart and not using theirs because its not right.

    I just got a balistic dial from Leupold, its not the cds but I think its done about the same way. I still have to see if it is done right or not. I hope it is.

    Im still learning this MOA game. 5 clicks at a thousand with 1/4 min clicks would be about 13 inches? Is that right? thats a bunch. I guess if mine is that far off I will have to learn how to build a chart for my rifle.
