No argument here.
Now, with regard to the test: I mentioned in my first post on this thread, I purchased my SN-3 with the EREK turret. This was soon after the EREK turret was designed and offered. I found out that the click value was not 0.5 as advertised, but 0.451 MOA/click. This obviously is a design defect and originates, as I understand it, from the wrong pitch value on the elevation screw. I worked with USO to determine exactly the right value. I'm assuming, but do not know for sure, that the problem has been corrected. The problem you are describing is the exact opposite, where the click value is more that the advertised value.
So, I see two possible issues. 1) If the tracking is erratic, i.e., does not have the same click value each and every time the knob is turned, then the problem is either poorly designed mechanism to move the reticle or an O.K. design but poor manufacturing technique. OR, 2) if the tracking is precise, but merely wrong in terms of the amount of movement, then clearly it is a pitch problem and should be easily to correct. My SN-3 is precise in its tracking, but tracks at the wrong rate.
My solution was to write a program
that allowed me to set the actual click value of my scope and have the output in terms of my turret so I wouldn't be hampered with this deviation.
I'm going to raise this issue with JW3 in the thread going on at Sniper's Hide
and see what he says.
