The problem with that is...the turret doesn't travel up and down externally. There is no visible movement of the turret in the upward direction for a full turn. I don't think it would make any difference due to the locking turret and how it functions. There are no graduation marks either just a simple white ring around the fixed portion that shows the turret is pulled up. When dialed up a full turn there is the same amount of space above the white line that there was at zero.
If someone does figure out how to not limit the up travel and retain the zero stop please post it. I suppose they were thinking about the cds when the designed it but a NF type zero stop would have been much better and probably doubled their sales.
Regardless, I really like the scope and I can get over 700 with my creedmoor and over 800 with my 6.5x284 so not a deal breaker for me but it would be nice to not have a limit.
