I see what your saying Rich, but having had so much trouble with my old Big Nikko I am very conscious of temp ranging issues. I haven't seen more than a couple of yards shift with my Sightron and all it does is slightly under range the long ones in the cold. So the first thing I do when I get to a shoot is get the gun out to settle for half an hour minimum, then check the scope on the 55 a couple of times and then I have no trouble at all (even in the darkness of the woods) So I can rule out the scope. And on Sunday I didn't miss any high or low. (except for miss reading my wheel and going one and half turns out!!- pillock!
I now understand why so many people don't mark their wheel or turret directly! I may have to go down that route, although I would prefer not to for the sake of simplicity.
