The standard markings from Leupold are MOA (roughly 1.047" at 100 yards.MOA). If you contact Leupold, and tell them your loading data, they will custom make a turret that is roughly calibrated for your rifle. You could also just use the MOA turrets and then figure out what the corrections are for your load (like the JBM online ballistics computer). And yes, if you want a custom turret made, you will probably have to chronograph your hunting loads in your rifle.I have bought this scope to fit onto my .270
Can someone advise me how to sight it in.
If I set the rifle up at 100 yards, do I set the CDS to 0 or 1.
Then if I want to shoot at 200 yds, do I just turn it up to 1 or 2.
Is the standard CDS dial that the scope comes with for a .270.
Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1
Nightforce is such a solid combo of reticle, available elevation, glass that is good enough to shoot at the longest range you can dial. Nightforce has bullet proof construction that can handle the incidental horse rolling or some other rodeo action. -- bigngreen
The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
