Thank you very much, that makes sense. So my thinking was correct, I did not know the markings were spaced to coincide with the cartridge specific trajectory. JE Custom mentioned this as well, would I be correct in assuming that the space on the dial between 4-5 would be smaller than the space between 7-8? I am assuming that caliber x has a flatter trajectory between 400 - 500 yards than between 700 - 800 yards. The knowledge and willingness to share on this sight is phenomenal. I know that the continued existence of the shooting sports is dependent on encouraging and helping new shooters. Well done.

You would be correct in thinking that. Essentially it is like taking a target turret and sighting in at lets say 100 yards, taking a piece of tape and wrapping around the turret and making a mark, finding how many clicks it take to get to 200 yards and make a mark. 300 mark,400 mark and so on. It just looks a lot neater when it is laser engraved on the turret than when you just do it on a piece of tape or something.
