Going to send a 3.5-10x40 and a 2.5-8x36 in to Leupold for turrets.. The 3.5-10 is going on my Montana 7-08 and the 2.5-8 is going on my Model 7 260. I really only ever hope to get out to around 600yds with these two so if would a CDS with a one rotation zero stop be the easiest way to go and would there be any real need for the M1 style? Am also going to get the #4 put in the 3.5-10 after seeing the picture posted of it in the new VX2 and have a post n plex already in the 2.5-8.. Thanks DD

What do you think?:



You think now you'll only ever want to get to 600, then you'll get there and suddenly it's not far enough. Don't pidgeon-hole yourself outta the gate.

To slightly thread jack, anyone ever have issues putting a turret on a VX2? Accuracy, repeatability wise?

I like the CDS, but have to say M1s are growing on me

For 650 yds a CDS with a zero stop would be lower profile and work well, for 650 and over the M1 would be needed, Have you ever shot out to 650 yards?

I've owned and used both. Now my Leupy's carry M1's, with not a single CDS knob to be found...
