Re: DIY custom turret for Leupold VX3

I'm using Avery Label Paper in full sheets, I cut them out with a scissors. I sandwich them between layers of 3M packaging tape--the underneath layer so you can remove it from the turret without making a gooey mess, the top layer to make them water resistant (and it overlaps the junction so they don't come off). It takes a little practice to develop the right technique to get them on there nicely but it isn't too hard. It all depends on how much of a perfectionist you are.

My current printer is an HP LaserJet CP1525 and while it does do a nicer job, for years I used a regular old inkjet. The top label in the pics (on the Premier) was made with the inkjet. What makes them look so good is filling the cells black and using white colored font so they match the scope.

    I was going to ask the same thing - if it is possible to get a copy of the file you use in Excel.

    And on top of that, it would be VERY cool to see a step by step of you making a label (pictures of your process) - I would like to do this all for myself some time. To be able to do this, I think, would help a guy understand the whole process even further. Thanks Jon - very much appreciate your input here and in other forums.
