Hi Im Snow leopard up in N.H. & last fall I picked up a couple old stock new in box redfield widefield illuminator scopes. I more than like the old redfields as I own about 18 widefields but when I unboxed these and checked them over I noticed the windage and elevation knobs were different than anything I had seen before.The turrets are tall and there is an outer ring scale 0-12 that turns the entire turret. Inside that there is a more familiar dial that is set up in 1/8" moa increments. The outer , turns 1-3/4 turns total so you would basically get 0-21 if it had the # 's to do so. My question is what are the values of the 0-12 scale? If it is moa then that means on a 6-20 scope I only have 10.5 elev. moa usable??? That does not seem correct? Also once sighted I do not see how to return dials to 0 ?No lift & turn ....screws in small scale?Help!

I dont know the answer to this but can you turn the top slotted dial separately without the main turret moving?

Correct the outer turret is set up in 4 moa increments and the smaller inner dial is set up in 1/8 moa increments the small inner has two small screws that look like they may be used to zero that scale once sighted but I do not see a way to zero the larger turret .Also you have to use the larger in 4 moa or 8 or 12 you cannot stop say where the 6 would be there is no detent to keep it there . The way this all sets up is it looks like I only have 16 moa usable up from 0, 12 on the larger turret and 4 total in the 1/8 increment dial, does that sound right for a 6x-20x ? Sorry for all the questions but I have been shooting & hunting all my life but am now just getting into long range rifles & shooting.
