View Full Version : Leupold 8.5-25x50 Turret ?

I noticed that the turrets were marked in 15 sections i.e. 1 to 14 and then the final graduation marks before 0. [with 4 intermediate marks].
As it is a 1/4 MOA turret per the spec does that mean each 360 degree rotation = 15 MOA. This new scope could do 2 complete revolutions before it seemed to come to a natural stop. [maybe I could have turned harder - but for prudence sake I wanted to be gentle [safe rather than sorry] until I was sure it should go further] i.e is that 30 MOA total elevation. Becuase it says in the spec. that it has a total MOA of 70 MOA.
It also seemed odd that there were 6 vertical marks to count each revolution but this only spanned 2 marks. Is there a problem withthe scope? or is my maths wrong.

Thanks Sportsmatch.

Seems it was a good thing I returned it - despite the hassle.
Was yours unmarked, mine had a number of scratches on it
