I can't entirely disagree with you about the turrets, the CDS dials would be alright, but the problem for me is I would have to have 3 different sets because I hunt in three extremely different elevation/temp ranges. I am going to just keep the MOA turrets on and then once I get some good data gathered, it will be pretty easy to build charts for each area with the G7 calculator. With that said, if I hunted the same area every year, I would have a CDS dial.

Re: Leupold VX-3 6.5-20

As for the zero stop, I just took a red sharpie and colored the hash mark so I always know where zero is at a quick glance. Also the Burris signiture rings you can get the most out of your elevation. I myself like the fine duplex I use charts and I dont like the reticle with a cluttered picture at distance
