Could someone on here tell me why? The turrets on rifle scopes are backwords. The top turret moves up and down right. And the side moves for wind right and left right. It would make more since that the top turret would work for wind. Right and left so you could move it to the wind. And the side turret would be for up and down. So why don't they make scopes that way.
The design of the erector tube simply requires elevation adjustment to be made in the vertical plane, and windage adjustment in the horizontal. There's really no other way to accurately move that tube around...

That tube is the circle in the middle. Precision screws move the tube against a spring shown on the bottom and the left.

i know im just a newbie here, but as long as your scope doesn't have a side focus, could you not just turn the scope 90 degrees to the left. this would put the up/downturret on the left side of the rifle, and the right/left turret on the top. it may not work, but it might?
