    Is there another company that manufactures Ballistic Drop Compensators other than Kenton? I am looking for someone who does Sightron scopes.

    What I would do is take a turret cap to a big sporting goods store and see if it will fit a luepold, Burris,or any other scope that has a target knob style turret.

    If you can find a generic knob that will fit your turrets then you can easily make a BDC knob out of it by a couple of different methods. Brown dog, 4kd horn and Abinok have computer programs to make a cover for the dial. Or you can use fingernail polish to cover up the generic numbers and then use a sharpie to inscribe your yardages.

    Nobody makes a bullet drop compensator that's accurate for all muzzle velocities your handloads will shoot as well as all the atmoshperic conditions and elevations you may shoot at. Considering there's several MOA difference between zeros at 1000 yards at sea level and only 6000 feet elevation, one needs tools to measure the atmospheric conditions as well as measured drop tables for the bullet you're shooting at its exact muzzle velocity for different ambient temperatures.

    Otherwise, you'll easily miss deer size targets at only 500 yards.
