They won't ever be exact for every scenario as you quite rightly point out.

 

However you do the calculations for a given set of variables and produce the wrap based on what markings you want, there isn't any ballistic calculation in the production. It's all pre-production.

 

As someone else suggested above, you could get some additional turrets and build wraps for a range of scenarios, which is exactly what I am hoping to do.

If you get chance could you please clarify the calculations required, I've as Hunter686 suggests but they still don't match up!

 

Many thanks

Shooting at 3 or 400yds there would be very little innit but at 1000yds it would or could be moa's out.i would like to try one out if somebody want to try making one for a mk4 leupold.i could give the data needed.

Diameter of the turrets X 3.14 then divide that number by how many moa in a revolution (clicks) in my case 80 for the NF and that will give you the exact spacing for your hash marks

Cannot get it to work for me!

 

Using an NXS scope 0.250MOA, my measurements are

 

29.972mm diameter therefore circumference is 94.112mm

40 clicks per turret which gives me 2.352mm hash spacing

available label height is 10.16mm

 

When i enter the coordinates into QCAD, the length of the "X" axis only allows me to enter 17 hash marks???

 

I must be missing something?

 

Any ideas anyone?

Have you definitely set the grid size to be correct?

 

Do feel free to email me the file and I can take a quick look! Adamdavi3s at gmail dot com

Try zooming RIGHT in. You have to get really close to see the correct division's

Yeah I guess I might have a weird screen resolution or something.... but I can clearly see all 80 of mine and the grid

I am thinking its something strange about the grid spacing?

 

Its almost as if its an error with the spacing/sizing of the grid coordinates...very frustrating!

Here's a couple of screen shots of mine, different scope but might help out.

 

Just realised you can't see my hash marks on the screen shot. But you can see them from that view.

Make sure you're defo in the drawing prefs and not the application prefs, they look very very similar but changing the grid in the application setting does not work

Still can't get the colour change. Do you have to set the layers up prior to drawing the wrap or can it be done after?

 

Sorry I have finally managed to add this to the original post!

Got it to work now - just seemed to start corresponding by its self in the end!

 

Only issue now is i have discovered my printer of 15 years is not up to the job of printing fine text!!

 

Thanks for the information on this - very good..

Hi chaps,

 

Couple of tips.....

I was completely unable to sort out the grid the background to match my click measurements so (with plenty of time on my hands) I individually placed my hash marks for the first 5 MOA of my 20 Moa turrets. So the first hash was placed at ref 0-0, with the next at 1.17, the next at 2.34 etc etc and so on. Then I highlighted the first 5 moa and the copied and pasted overlapping the end hash marks. For me this worked and possibly it will for others who's grid is not working.

 

Second tip, ensure that if converting to PDF to print (like I did), ensure your zoom is set to 'window' or 1:1 - otherwise you may have a perfect grid that's way way too big!!!

 

Worth the effort and thanks for the originally write -up!

Onto windage turrets, how do you get the little box with pointed wind direction onto the grid?

 

Cheers...

I made it up with lines, if you download my file from the original post then you might be able to copy and paste one from my file into yours, but I haven't tried I am afraid!

Please do share your own creations guys!

 

Plus if you get a file finished for your scope, do let me know as I can add them all to the original post and we can start a library!

 

We can always just upload base files so all the measuring is done and people can add their own ballistics on

Someone suggested printing directly on to vinyl so I am going to order some of this to try out

A4 Inkjet Gloss Vinyl Self Adhesive Sticker Paper x20 sheets https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B000W4H63S/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_awd_MNQcxbGBXJKJD

I bought a sample pack from a company and it only cost 97p and you get 3 A4 sheets with adhesive backing.

Where did you order from if I may be so bold?

Sounds a bit nicer than £20!

I'll look back through my invoices and find the company.

That is what i used Adam, when i put the picture of the turret i did on FB.

 

Pricey but by the reviews waterproof!

 

Still cheaper than ordering from a custom turret seller...
