Re: Leupold aftermarket reticle knobs
You never adjust the reticle, you adjust the image elevation and windage via their respective turrets. The reticle is the superimposed cross lines, or BDC holdovers or hash marks you see when you look into the ocular.
If you scope don't have adjustable parallelax (turret on the left side) or in the case of an AO (adjustable Objective) scope, on the front bell, might as well buy a scope with adjustable parallelax because industry standard on fixed scopes is 100 yards. That don't work.
Finally, it's preferrrable to have it on the left side versus out front because it's handy to adjust whereas out front is a PITA.
I know, I have an older Leupy Boone and Crockett reticle thats an AO. It's a nice. clear long range scope but a royal PITA to dial parallelax on.
