Re: Leupold M1 or M3 turrets?
From my experience and talking with a lot of folks who use both.
For tactical or long-range competitions at know distances, the M3 with the BDC is the way to go. The turrets are cammed for a specific caliber/load/bullet and velocity. It's very fast to dial to your distance, point and shoot. With the M3, you can't lose track of how many revolutions you have gone around on your turret.
For hunting and long range shooting at unknown distances the M1 is the way to go. Especially if you're shooting a caliber/load/bullet or velocity that does not have a BDC cam for the M3 turrets. One negative with the M1, at long distances, it can be easy to forget how many revolutions you've gone around on a M1 Turret.
I have the M1 turrets on one of my rifles and I like them a lot. [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

Distance is not an issue, but the wind will make it interesting!
