I'm into long range varmint hunting and here is what I've come up with. There is a place called Kenton Industries. They make target turrets made up in yardage instead of MOA. It's $79 for one made up for your load, velocity, and bullet. Jesse had one made that is good out to 1300 yards for his Leupold 8x25 LR scope. Their web site is Kenton Industries
They have several different formats for several differend scopes.
I have several scopes that I use for long range shooting. I've had two Nightforce scopes. The first one had problems and had it replaced. The second one I've had problems with and it has been back to the shop twice. I've had problems with it holding zero on my 300 Win Mag so it now rides on my 6.5/06. I still don't have any faith in it. The glass is very clear but I get smaller groups when I mount my Tasco Custom shop scope on the 300 mag. I have three Leupold VX-III's and they work great. No complaints. The scopes that are impressing me the most right now are the Millett Models # 30735 through 30739. Also their TRS-1. I've had such good luck with the Millett # 30735 that it now rides atop of my 338 Lapua Mag instead of my Leupold Vari-x III. Great scopes. Their TRS-1 is another great scope. Don't let the price fool you. Check out Midway USA, MidwayUSA - Shooting Supplies, Reloading, Gun Parts, Ammunition, Rifle Scopes & Airguns
Look for Millett scopes, TRS-1 and all the reviews are 5 star. Also they're also probably all sold out. The TRS-1 are sold out as fast as they come in. I've tested them against Nightforce, Leupold, Shepard, Swarovski, Super Sniper, Tasco Custom Shop, and it help its own against them all for holding zero.
I've got to get ready for work.
Catch you later,
