    Custom turret label - what to use?

    Want to make a custom turret label for my Nightforce, just wondering what label material to use?

    Dont waste your time chasing every last fps, it doesnt matter in the real world, it wont make a difference, all it will do is cause head aches and frustrations. And dont listen to silly old cunts

    Brother P touch industrial label you can enter in measurements for marks and numbers and then Id be tempted to put some clear heat shrink over the top of that. I can probally print you one out if you give me measurements you want and chuck it in the post for you. Its 9mm wide tape and I can do white writing on blacl tape.

    That looks brilliant protects the knob too. What is that heat shrink stuff? Where do you get it?

    @WillB always protect your knob! Picked it up from jay car. I have some Sapir of you won't to try some. Other wise it's expensive at about $3 a tube

    I have my own custom app to print custom turret labels...but I havnt been able to locate any waterproof sticky labels to print them on, so for now I jsut prnt to mailing label and put invisible tape over to give them some waterprooffing.

    NB take a look at the free ballistic app developed by Hawk for airf rifles (Chairgun). It handles centrefire ballistics as well and has a custom turret option including multiple rotations.
