"Click" Calculations - Who is right?

Hi all,

I just ordered a couple of turrets from Leupold and I also ordering one from Kenton. But the click values I got from Leupold are different than "Shooter" and Nikon Spoton. 5 clicks at 500 yrads. Shooter and Nikon and pretty close....

What are your experiences? Exact same parameters were used in all cases (BC, Grains, Vel, Alt, Baro)

If you didn't actually do the shooting at the distances you hope to have an accurate turret at, none of them may be right.

It's called trajectory validation by most.

Here are a couple videos that may help:

Plus one here if your going to spend the money to get the turrets you should have validated the drop before you ordered them

Like others have stated they should have required your field data to make the turrets.

It is strange though if the same data was used and the turrets are different. They should be exactly the same.

I guess my question is why order so many turrets with the same ballistic info?
