I run a Kimber Montana in 338Fed with the 2.5x Leupold ultralight in Talley Extra Lows.....turning the scope 90 degrees makes loading much easier and no problems .....

It was not uncommon for the Remington 788 to have problems with ejection when the empty case would hit the scope turret and fall back into the port. The obvious cure for this was to rotate the scope 90 degrees so the windage adjustment became elevation etc.
I did this for one fellow and explained to him about the switched functions of the turrets. He came back into the store the next day and it was soon apparent my explanation must have been lacking.
"I've got a problem with this scope", he proclaimed.
"What kind of problem?", says I.
"Well, I went out to sight it in and it hit a bit to the right. I adjusted it to the left and it still hit to the right and now it was hitting low. So I moved it up and more to the left. Now it hit fine for side to side but was lower than before. I moved it up further and it still hit low and now it hit way to the left. I moved it up further and back to the right and I was off the paper. I think the adjustments are screwed up".
I explained again that the adjustment which was on top of the scope was now the elevation adjustment.
"But it says left!", he was getting a bit loud.
"It doesn't matter what it says", I replied, "just take my word for it".
"I'm kind of thinkin' you don't really know what you're talkin' about!", he said, and away he went. GD
