    Building a better CDS dial

    After purchasing my first dial up scope - the ultra high spec Leupold 3x9 VX2 CDS I wasn't that impressed. Being able to dial was nice for my intended use of 223 at rabbits but the cap was easy to bump while caring the gun and the marking weren't east to read so you had to count hash marks to work out where you were.

    Some research on the interwebs led me to believe that the better solution is a custom dial cap with clearer markings and a zero stop. The zero stop means you can check it's zeroed without looking at it and if you bump it it can only move in one direction. Clearer markings were much easier to see.

    Mine are from Leupold, you get a free custom turret cap when you buy the scope but I think they are about $60 otherwise. I rang NZ asia who ordered it from the new Australian Leupold custom shop.

    So basically you can now order custom BDC or a MOA turret from Leupold for around $60 that includes a zero stop?
    Does the zero stop only allow one turret revolution?

    Who/what is NZ asia?

    Don't quote me on the price as I didn't pay for mine and I think it's $60usd. It's a cap for the CDS turrets system not the normal Leupold turrets. If you have a CDS scope you just give them your serial number and they send you the cap for free.

    I only get one 14moa turn with the zero stop.
