I did the same thing...got the ballistic reticle first then exchanged it for the lockable turret version.
I can't say much else...the scope is for a rifle that won't be finished until October/Novevber...I've played around with it some, the turrets seem to work great...good clicks and all that.
I wouldn't want it for much more than 11-1200 yards, and even that will require a pretty fast round...it only has 70 MOA of total adjustment...with my 280 Ackley and the zero stops removed, it should be good for sending the 160 grain Nosler Accubond to 1,100 yards...which is far enough for me.
The elevation is only limited if you use the zero stops...with the zero stops installed, you're limited to 16.5 above zero....you really don't have to use them though...it only has 70 MOA total, so you're gonna be zero'd at around half of that (35)...and from zero you have less than 2 full turns of up adjustment....getting lost in the turret should be pretty easy to avoid with that setup....it is 18 MOA per revolution without the zero stops.
