    From Schmidt Bender web site.

    Hunting scopes
    Remove the turret caps. The elevation dial will be marked with either a "U" or "H" for up and a "D" or "T" for down. The windage dial is marked with an "L" for left and an "R" for right. Turn the dial in the direction you want to move your shot. For example, to move your shot down and to the right, turn the elevation dial clockwise in the direction of "D" or "T." Then move the windage dial clockwise toward the "R."

    I always remember that the 'H' is 'up' from the WW2 phrase 'Hande hoch' ...'hands up' /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif (so 'T' is obviously the opposite).

    The click value is 99.9% likely to be 1cm at 100m or 0.36in at 100yds

    SEAHAWK,

    Just thought i would add, L & R stands for "Links und rechts"
    German for "Left and Right".
