    when i use leupold's windage bases, i can usually get the scope mounted in such a way that i can have the windage turret left in the center - enabling the windage to be dead on to 300 yards or so and in. if i use a picatinny system, how do i get the windage to remain in the center, or do i just spin turrets for all ranges?

    presuming the rifle receiver mounting holes are properly aligned and you use precisely made base/rings, I think you will find the Picatinny setup to be pretty much dead on for windage. I set up a Rem 700 w/Badger base and rings (Picatinny style) and used less than 1 MOA windage from optical center to get lined up at 600y.

    Once you get zeroed, you should get comfortable twisting the knobs. That's why they exist. [​IMG]

    You should also be able to remove your scope, remount it, and have very little shift in zero.
