    I am looking to start a cartridge board. I have some of the standard calibers, but am looking for more. I would love to find some of the bigger ones (ie 338 lapua, 408/375 varients, wildcats, etc), and some of the newer "wizbang" cartridges. If you have anything that has a loose primer...

    New Turrets

    i know im just a newbie here, but as long as your scope doesn't have a side focus, could you not just turn the scope 90 degrees to the left. this would put the up/downturret on the left side of the rifle, and the right/left turret on the top. it may not work, but it might? cdixon
