The absolute last thing needed in the field is caps. You gonna fiddle frick around unscrewing caps over your turrets, and mind loosing them, before a shot?
I've been using NXS and MK4 scopes in the field since they were available, and have never managed to 'bump' a turret off zero.
I don't think you could without damaging these scopes, and that ain't likely.
That POS Millet..... Nothing more than hollywood...
There, I've said it.
Let your conscience be your guide, and good luck.
Well I should'nt respond but I will.
First I said '' It works For me"
That didn't mean that you should sell all of your scopes and change them to
ones with turrent covers.
It doesent matter if you have covers or not before you make a shot you should
check to make sure if your turrents are still on zero.
I have read some examples of forgeting to rezero after a shot on this website
by some very well known long rang shooters so it does happen to those of us
that are not perfect.
I for one have/make time to fiddle #&%$ with turrents, covers or anything else
it takes to make a clean one shot kill.
I realize that if you remove your rifle from your $50,000 SUV and walk 20 feet
to your shooting position chances are good that you wont bump the turrents
But for those that may hike or pack horse 10 or 15 miles there is a good chance
it will happen .
Plus the turret caps offer a little more protection and I have never lost one and
besides it makes me feel better.
PS: My Target rifles don't have or need turret covers but my hunting rifles do.
