PS pretty fancy shooting!
How do you know that ? Did I post a picture of my rifle ? You are right though....when I had the Leupold on the 300 I switched the knobs and turned the scope 45* The reason for this if you are a right handed shooter you can make adjustments to the scope without ever taking your right hand off the trigger, or eye off the scope.......just in case you see a turban that needs untied at 1000 yards :-)
Just yesterday I mounted a NF scope on the 300, and put the Leupold on a little Vangaurd 308 I bought. Here is a pic, below it is the 30-378 I have been talking about. I mounted the scopes in the traditional fashion.
I found one of the 300 with the scope the way it was, next to my 308 sniper rifle.
