I have used both turrets.
Some say the CDS turret can "unknowningly" spin out of adjustment in scabboards and such - I have never encountered this problem.

On a hunting rifle I prefer the CDS due to the lower profile and zero stop. On a long range or similar rig I prefer the M1 or Target turrets.

YMMV


I agree 100%. Here is my 4.5x14x40 LR 30mm tube. Love the low profile. No zero stops.










Why no zero stops... exspecially on the windage knob?

Might have missed it but am surprised no one mentioned that on a 1" scope tube you only have just so much elevation clicks.

With a 100 yd zero you'll need to shim the rear base if you want to get out past 650 or 700 yards depending on cartridge.

I prefer M1's over the CDS when I have gloves on in cold weather.

SU, on the 3.5-10x40 Vari-X III Tactical I'm using on the 243 right now, I had to stick some Burris Signature Zees on a cheapo Weaver 20 MOA base to have some elevation to play with. Using the 20 and 10 inserts, I've got about 40 Minutes to play with from a 100 yard zero.

I got my custom dials for my 22-250, it goes to 700 and a few clicks left over. The 243AI goes to 750 and a few clicks. I haven't really played with em yet but for a couple of mountain rifles, they should be fine.

I have a few M1's and hate the target turrets, even paid to have them changed to M1's last summer on one scope.

Different strokes...

If the CDS elevation was labeled similar to the windage I'd be much more inclined to roll that way.

Any reason why it can't be set up that way?
