    Have you used the CDS coupon thing?
    You know, if you need 100 rounds to kill a deer, maybe hunting isn't your sport.

    How good is cds compared to a Mk4's turrets and how long does it take door to door to swap over if using the coupon? Lovely scope but needs external adjustments to maximise long range use....?

    Could you explain external adjustments to me ? Sorry I'm a little slow sometimes,
    Does it mean like chucking it on a rail that is not level to the action, to get the most out of dialing ?

    Could be talking about the capped turrets mate. LR scopes don't generally go in the bush so capped turrets are not needed. On the other hand its not overly hard to take the caps off at the range.

    Mark 4, and their turrets are poo's any way.

    It would be fine as a tops scope dan, you will have time to remove the caps... the whole 5 seconds it will take you.

    Yeah that was my thinking, set it @ 100m zero and then if it needs changing for tops im gonna have to set up a bipod, rangefinder and other wind calculations anyways so another 10 seconds wont make a difference.

    ...and I guess the turret covers stop knocks on the way to the tops.
