Bart, I am building a custom 280 as we speak, and will be in the market for another scope, as I am going to be doing some swapping when it arrives. But that is going to leave me needing another scope. I have gotten very fond of the Monarch series, so IF you do have a special on them, I may be interested. Sorry to hear that no turrets avail for the UCC.
I had a 6-18 BDC, and traded it, as after awhile, I found the view a little busy, and when I decided to dial it, I forgot to rezero, then used the BDC reticle, and was really messed up. Never could figure why they put turrets on a BDC type reticle. Anyway, very good optics, and parallax was dead on. ( Buckmasters )

Check them out.

I checked out the site. Looks like a good deal. I do have a question for you though. I have a Nikon Monarch 4-16x50SF. When filling out the order for a turret it ask if you want the short or tall turret. The tall turret gives you longer range settings. My scope has the short turrets but I'd rather have the tall elevation turret.. Can I order the tall turret for it and will it work on my scope? What is involved in changing it and does it come with the turret cap to fit?

Thanks for the info.

Nim, You can order the tall turret for your scope. It is easy to replace too. There was a video turorial on how to do it, I think it's still there, I'll have to check.

Thanks Bart. I just ordered the tall turret for my 6.5-284. It said I'd have range marks out to 1300 yards. Comparing their click settings to the Shooter ballistics program, they are very close.

Does the turret come with the screw on cap? I normally leave the cap off while I'm shooting but leave it covered for transport.

Couldn't find the tutorial video. If you find it, could you please post a link? Thanks again for the help.

Re: Turrets for nikon monarch ?

Yes, it is an open turret. I will suggest if you don't have it already, either shim's or a 20 MOA base to reach the full potential of your scope at longdistances. Just thought I'd throw that in incase you didn't think of it?
To shoot past 600 yards this is almost a requirement.

Thanks Bart. I've already changed all my rifles over to the 20 or 40 MOA Picatinny bases. Even if I don't intend to use a rifle for long range, I like the rigidity and utility of the bases. And so far I haven't had a problem with any scope not being able to zero at close range.
