Optically - they're hard to beat
Adjustable mounts. Less stress for scope and got user.

As an aside the alloy on them is soft. The tubes can be easily distorted. Pa rings can be as well just by squeezing with fingers. I did it on one to fix a warped pa ring...

I don't have one anymore so I don't have the measurements - they're pretty easy top turrets to make for anyone with a lathe though - just 3 grub screws onto a central shaft.
