Leopold LRT question

Just purchased a 6.5x20x50 LRT scope. After I get my zero where I want it, I'm told there's a way to adjust my turrents to "0" without actually changing the zero. How to? I see there's a screw in middle of turrent. Hold it down and turn turrents? Loosen and turn turrents? Help appreciated as always!

Re: Leopold LRT question

I have a 6.5-20X50 Leupold 30mm tube and after I zero it at say 200 yards I take a small allen wrench that came with it and loosen all three screws at the top of the elevation turret and spin the cap around until the zero hash mark lines up then gently tighten them down and your good to go . works the same way with the windage turret .

Re: Leopold LRT question

Thanks for your help, I'll take a look at it! I assume both of the above posts will both work, being as they both have different ways to accomplish same thing?

Re: Leopold LRT question

Same thing. You really can't hurt it (unless you're an absolute madman). Don't fret, loosen the screw(s) a little bit (1/2 turn to a full turn) and try to spin the knob without moving the adjustment (no clicks). Turn the knob to 0 and tighten it. The only thing you can't do, is zero the up and down adjustment, you're stuck with that.

Re: Leopold LRT question

Just to clarify, are we all talking the little set screws with the allen wrench? What's the scoop with the big silver screw on top? Cross - what are you referring to about not changing the up and down adjustment?
