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...

 

True, and plenty left over for spare turrets!

I wanted to do my next set as white on black, I wonder how the vinyl would take to being printed black... need to order some and play :)

Stuff in my previous pics was matte vinyl. I left a buggered one in a glass of of water over night and it was still sticky with zero colour run.

I got some from ebay in the end and it seem great!

 

The wraps I am currently doing for my .22lr weren't big enough to do a black background as I had hoped, but on a white background they have printed up lovely

I've got this one for NXS (a single turn on a 10MOA per turn turret) Adam - pm sent.

Cheers

If like something like this but I wouldn't know where to start, I feel giddy just reading that first post ?

Just out of interest, when making up windage turret wraps does anyone else include spin drift within their wraps for right (90*) or left (270*) wind as this effects the results.

 

BC 0.490

2882 fps

95gr

1:8 right twist barrel

 

550 yd 90* 10mph wind correction is 4moa

550 yd 270* 10mph wind correction is 3.5moa

 

Just interested if others add this or not...

Not sure its in here but theres lot to read so may ahve missed it

 

But Chairgunner Pro (Hawke Ballisitcs program)

 

Gives output for Click value with near and far and can be imported into Excel ( i change Clicks to MOA as its easier to See on the scope) I just print the chart

 

Range with the laser find the MOA (up the left down the right and dial that

 

this is the 17HMR to 200 bit in boarders is printed and laminated with Sellotape to the stock

Blue ie 0.5MOA is the normal setting i have it on for hunting gives a PBR in a 1" KZone from 34 to 120 yrds (rabbit head shot)

ideal for Quick shooting and Night Vision use

Version two just uploaded for the NXS

Totally agree a good old dope card is great, I just wanted to take it a step further and have it on the turret

Excellent. Thanks for this. Worked perfectly. Except my eyesight !

 

Rolled a hunting version for my 624i - i.e. big letters. Very neat, I can just whip it off and put on a range version.

These things are good but every day is different . different humidity.temperature etc etc.you would need 12 different turrets too allow for all the variables.

Neil, many of these 'atmospheric' variables -and include Coreolis and spin drift etc etc,are not significant in the UK at normal hunting ranges,with modern ammunition. Trajectory and wind drift are,and these guides are useful/useable aids,which minimise errors in the shooting solutions.

 

(why 12-if you want to have every nuance covered,it would run to hundreds of combinations,but still only a few clicks,at most in extreme for uk conditions (distance and windage excepted).

 

Useable/useful is one set for the modal conditons,and maybe another IF conditions will be radically different.

 

With a 200 zero and then 25y (even 50y) intervals to 400,should cover most shots.

 

Fitted inside the front scope flip up cover is worth considering fast deployment.

 

 

LR target shooting will be dependent on sighters for windage anyhow-though the same principles apply-not degree by degree,surely.Have a read at the admitedly rather extreme Gelston shoot write up....

Well yes and no. Clearly at the extremes yes, the firing solution becomes more sensitive to a range of variables and needs more precise calculation particularly for small targets. That's why you have the MOA/Mil sub tensions on the tape. Nothing stopping you using it in that mode.

 

However it is also a no. Atmospherics are not a key fundamental at all ranges; it is possible to just use an 'offset' for the atmospherics in many circumstances (for me at least); for larger targets where speed is required then the drop calcs are done offline giving a faster but still pretty accurate shot.

 

So for short and medium ranges I can dial in a faster elevation correction while still retaining the flexibility of the original scope sub tensions.

 

All very clever.

 

In reality I can see that damn numbers in the field without my glasses...

I have mine on my .204 so I'm only going out to 500yrds. Upto that point there is only 1/4 of a click in it at any weather extreme for me. At the start of a day I'll either fire a test shot at a known distance then adjust accordingly for the rest of they day. Option 2: I'll rig up my ballistics app as normal and compare data with my turret and and make a mental note on what to do for the day i.e 10°c warmer .25 of a click less than turret suggests. If I'm missing at that it's usually my fault instead of the 1.25 inches vertical i was out at 500yrds

I carried a range card I made with data up to about 750yds.thinking back it was probaly done in low temps.i was waiting for Mr Fox to show and he did at 540yds.quickly dialed in an fired.missed over.saw dirt kick up.i went on bal cal and typed in current conditions and it put my poi 5 inches higher due to being one of the hottest evenings all year.i no longer keep a range card.ive been using my phone bal cal for months and months before every outing. I do the bal cal with current temps etc and do a screen shot on my phone.ive waited alot years for a shot like that.

adamdavi3s,

 

I hope this is what you meant!!!

 

I have a Sightron S111SS8-32x56LRMOA.

 

I would like to either get a replacement windage turret OR a label giving 0-7 right then 0-7 left instead of 0-14 one way! (I hope this makes sense!!)

 

I have read your excellent guide on 'how to' but still rather lost!!

 

Any info you could give would be appreciated. Thank you

 

John G
