    I have a Leupold 10x gold ring scope on a 300 H&H rifle that was "build" in 1973. I have some questions about the scope I do not know the model but it has target turrets and a 1 inch dot at hundred yards. While I am recovering from both knee and back problems I cannot go out and shoot so that is why I am asking some of these questions instead of going out shooting to find the answer. Does anyone know how many "clicks" per inch at 100 yards this scope is? Does anyone make turrets drums ( I think i asked that right) for this scope. Any other information about this scope? It has worked great for 30 plus years by the way. Also I know this might be a stupid question but I can not remember the answer. If a scope is lets say 1 click per inch at a hundred yards how many clicks would a person adjust for the same 1 inch at 200 yards, 300 yards and 400 yards. Right now the rifle is sighted in at 7.5 inch high at 100 yards and dead bull eye at 400 yards. If i wanted to say shoot 600 yards the old sierra book says i would be 41.0 inchs low how many clicks would i raise it would it be 41 clicks or am i thinking wrong? If so then to raise for a 1000 yard shot 270 inches low would be 270 clicks am I thinking wrong.

    That leupold 10 X scope with target turrets as sold has 1/4 " clicks - 4 of these = 1" at 100 yards.

    Not necessarily.

    In the 70's, Leupold sold a very popular target scope called the "Silhouette"... it has short target turrets, and 1/2 minute clicks. It was designed for Silhouette shooting.

    I have two of them, and they are fine scopes.

    1/2 minute adjustments were common on scopes in the 70's.

    The only way to tell, is to shoot a group, dial in 24 clicks, shoot another group, and see if the second group moved 12", or 6".
