It all comes down to the information you provide. The better the information, the better the turret. Plain and simple as that.

+1 and it should be from actual proven drops that have been field varified at the altitude and temps you intend to hunt before it it used on game.

Re: looking for most accurate Custom Turret

I have ordered turrets for my Mark 4's from Kenton Industries. When received they were exact to my ballistic info that was provided. I also have three Huskemaws with a half dozen turrets for different loads and conditions I have had made that were also also exact to my data when received. All three of my Huskemaws are impeccable as to repeatability using turrets. As previously stated, if you give all the required info they should be on. I have no experience with the scopes you mentioned.

Re: looking for most accurate Custom Turret

I had Vortex make one for me after I shot and measured the drops at progressively longer ranges which showed the trajectory as the bullet goes down range. It is dead nuts accurate at 4,500 feet elevation where I tested it in Wyoming all the way out to 900 yds..
