    Options for 2 turn or massive single turn scope

    After having a look at some fellow competitors scope setups at the Tokoroa 22 match last weekend, I am interested to see what options there are for single turn scopes with a large dial range 10 mead or 30 Moa, or alternatively 2 turn options where it is very easy and quick to see which rotation you are on.

    Mid level pricing, as opposed to S&B, Steiner etc

    I'm familiar with the VX5 ZL2 dial, but that is more tactile reference, ie feel if the button is in or out. Looking for something visual and quick...

    Ditto, an X5 would fit the bill well

    You might be able to find a used Premier LT?

    No, mine is not for sale

    These both have all the features that you are looking for other than being "cheap". 15 mils a turn with 2nd turn indicator. Left side wind age turret is really good as is the parallex under the elevation turret.

    If it's not a first round hit you need to practice more

    Hmm, K318i looks just about perfect... Time to start saving.

    I run a Atacr which has 30 moa or 12 mil per turn, enough to get me to 1100m on my 338 edge, there’s no getting lost on the turrets now

    Yes, I agree, single turn is the way to go for hunting and field target shooting.

    I sort of feel if you need to go to a second turn you're doing something a bit unnatural. Specially with a 22LR. You need the scope verticality and adjustments to be really spot on to hit a small target when you've dialled up more than 10 mils.

    It will be interesting to see if people come up with a mid priced scope that can adjust that far. I've just got a new VX3i 4.5-14 like the one you showed me at Tarata (thanks) and it has 5.5 Mil on the first turn. I haven't dared wind it much further in case I get lost; it doesn't have a turn indicator or anything. However 55cm should be enough to reach 500m which is way past what the rifle is meant for.

    RE needing 2nd turn, I guess it depends on what you are shooting. At Tokoroa, open class had targets ranging from 20m to 200m. With a 50yd zero, I was using all of 30 moa (2 x 15 moa turns) to get to the back target. Gillie created a couple of stages that involved a significant amount of dialing, and one of the competitors had a 10 mrad single turn solution, it was a lot faster than what I was doing.

    For Tarata this year I am going completely the other direction, and plan to shoot the whole thing (open class) with a BDC reticle and no dialing

    For a Mid level scope the Vortex Viper PST GEN II have 10Mrad or 25MOA per turn as do the Razor GEN II if you can dig that deep.
    If power matters, recoil will be a necessary evil
