I think the main problem originally was the fact that people expected them not to move.
The rangefinding on mine does change with temperature, but here is the thing, it is perfectly consistent, if it is x temperature its response will change by x yards from your reference everytime. Also you will notice that a small change in temperature will show a change in range. there is none of the 'it alters by 20 yards when the temperature hits 20 degrees, or was it 25 degrees' business.

When setting it up let it settle first and note the temp, then it is just down to experience.

I have just one set of markings and make it up from there but Andras has loads of points for reference on his but it is down to how you work.

One other thing, I had a bigger clearer turret made as I was dialling the wrong number, but that comes from being too easily distracted

Keep us up to date with how you find it.
