Is this one sound? What did you have it mounted on? How may rounds fired? Have you had any problems with it? Why are you selling it?

Yes, I'm trying to talk myself in taking a chance on it.
I am not aware of the turret problems. No problems with this one. I have about 40 rounds on it mounted on a 7mm wby. I bought a Leupold with illuminated reticle that I want to use on the 7.

    only the tactical versions with mil dot reticles have the larger turrets. these scopes do have target turrets. they are under the scope turret cap and are easily finger adjust similar to the USO style. Yo can also re zero the turret vithout tools which is a nice feature.
