Re: Different Elevation Locations CDS Turrets

Thx everyone! I talked to leupold today and told them my elevation in colorado with temp and bc/velocity. Considered 100 yard zero, but turret would stop @ 550yds. I went with 200 yd zero to reach out to aprox 650.
I tested this load out @ 600 yds & program was dead on. Temp was in the 60's.
I had scope turret @ 30 degrees.

That is where the CDS turrets work best. 600 yards and below. You can get away with more at shorter distances. Like altitude and temp being off. But at longer distances the errors stack up and turn into a problem. Like I said before, you can eliminate one error by checking and resetting your 100 yard zero at the intendd hunting altitude, if it needs it.
