    I plan on having them put on my Vari-X III if they are all they are cracked up to be. Nowing Leupolds quality I would say they are. I was just wanting to now if anyone has tried them.

    Dust270wsm, I have never used them but since know one has replied to your post I thought I might chime in:) I was considering going the same route with my 6.5x20x50 leupold (but) the more I read about atmospheric conditions temp. humidity elevation exc. exc. the more I realized a one turret for all conditions was impossible, in my opinion I decided to go with the nightforce pocket pc coftware and kestrel weather meter route insted and it is deadly accurate . just my .02 good luck with your turrets let us know how they work when you get them.

    I have a mark 2 on my 300wsm. Called leupold, gave them my data and $60. Two weeks later I received my elevation turrent. I have since tested it at most all ranges between 300 and 1000yds. It was dead nuts on the money at all ranges I shot. It is very liberating. For several years I have been using ballistic plexes of some sort or another and burned up a lot of ammo finding the best compromise setting. The precison of a lazer engraved elevation turrent is the way to go hands down. My buddy did the same on his 300 ultra mag about a year and a half ago. Last November I watched him drop his bull elk at 642 yds. X-ringed him. If you don't have target turrents on your scope you have to send it in to have them installed. It ups the cost to about $130. I received excellent service and advice as usual with leupold.
