On top of the turret there is a flat head screw. If you back that out the whole way the turret will lift off the scope. Then you can move the zero stop to where you want it. You will see it once you remove the turret, it's pretty clear how it works once you get it apart.

Can you just leave the turrets in the up position for making quick corrections at different ranges? or do you have to lock it back down every time you make a different correction?

Re: New Zeiss Conquest HD5 5-25x50 rifle scope.

Need help understanding the 16.5 MOA as this will be my first scope with turrets. I am thinking of the Rapid Z 1000 on the 5-25-50. I will be getting a 7mm-08 and hoping to shoot the Hornady 154 interbonds. Any idea how far it will allow me to shoot with the turret?

Re: New Zeiss Conquest HD5 5-25x50 rifle scope.

I am a novice with turret scopes. If I would remove the zero stop, how would I be able to locate the zero? I know on my sons AR-15 for service rifle matches, we count the clicks on the knob, say 40 from one side to the other. Then we stop at twenty and adjust a few to the left of center of the dial or to the right depending on our shooting data journals, wind condition, distance, bullet, etc. Turrets on a scope I have not yet used but feel they would let me be more accurate for smaller targets like groundhogs.

While I do not like the clutter in the scope, my thinking in getting the Rapid Z 1000 I could use the recticle for shots requiring a quicker shot when shooting at larger targets such as a deer.

Re: New Zeiss Conquest HD5 5-25x50 rifle scope.

Don't stress out, guys. You can have your zero stops and full adjustment on your favorite Zeiss scopes. I'll show you how. :-) Look at the picture.

You guys can make your own "zero stop" by fitting a washer (shim) under the elevation turret itself. I look at the picture of the Zeiss HD5 turret. Turning the turret to the Left moves the point of impact "down" and the turret itself moves down toward the base of the scope.

First set your zero. Then grind the washer to the right thickness to "stop" the turret from moving further than your zero, thus making a "zero" stop. Then you can enjoy your beloved Zeiss optics and its full adjustment range.

I have done this with my Sightron SIII. It has similar turret design. I use nylon to make my washer because it is easy to grind, paint, and mark. Just find the right washer diameter for the turret stanchion then grind, grind, and grind. Enjoy.
