Schimdt & Bender scope ?

What do the "cw" and "ccw" options translate to as far as the function of the turrets?

    I understand that much. I was abbreviating as I was typing on my phone.

    My current scopes all adjust the same. ccw is up on the elevation turret and ccw is right on the windage.

    Does this mean I can have it reversed on and S&B scope?

    Why would I want that?

    Yes, you can have it reversed.

    Having your movement going CW makes more sense to some guys.

    Does turning the knob clockwise cause the reticle appear to move up or the target appear to move up (or left or right or ???), It's only a problem if you've used one for years and your new scope is backwards in one or both axes.

    That's why I like Horus reticles They eliminate knob twiddling and can't work in the wrong direction.

    The direction indicated on the knob, numbers, letters, or arrows, should always be the direction you want the bullet impact to move on the target. It doesnt matter if its CW or CCW, its your preference, as long as the bullet impact and the direction indicated are the same.
