    Leupold rifle scope

    Does anyone know (BB you know who you are) if Leupold offers a stop on the elevation turret? So if you zero in your scope at say 200 yds you can set a stop on the adjustment so no matter how many times you turn the turret you can turn it back to the stop and your back at 200 yds.

    I guess I'll be sending my scopes into the custom shop again.

    Yea I really like the CDS, works like a charm and they go straight back to dead nutts at 200 yards every time.

    Forgot to mention if you decide to get the CDS on your Leupold, it will arrive with a universal top turret, which does not have a stop, so you sight in your scope to your rifle first. Once sighted in, you then take off the universal turret and put on the custom dial turret. The custom dial turret has the stop at 200 yards or where ever you request it to be when you order it (Your Zero). You will need the following information when you order the custom dial; Type of caliber, bullet Make and model, bullet weight, muzzle velocity, elevation, and your sight-in or zero (200 yards for all of mine).

    The approximate cost was $100.00 for the CDS to be placed on the scope and $50.00 per custom dial, so your looking at about $150.00 total. Turn around time was about one month.

    Thanx. I have all my scopes sent in to the custom shop for turrets to be built with my info for each gun. Glad they offer it!

    Leupold does offer a stop with the CDS. The catch is you only get one rotation of the turret, too, so that will limit your range. Vortex has a "rotation stop" shim system on the PSTs and HS/LRs that gets you on the right rotation, but you have to line up the zero. Vortex also makes custom BDC dials for those scopes.

    Both are good options with some limitations.

    I will not be making a comment on your last post, IKIC.

    Hahahha I was waiting for a clever comment on that last one from you.

    Thanx for the info as always it's all about the details. If I can't turn the turret more then one turn that won't work for me. I shoot out to 1k yards and it's up to almost 3 turns on the turret.

    I think I'm going to look into the Vortex and Night Force too.
