I've been thinking about adding turrets to my Leupold VX-II 3-9x40 for awhile.

I stumbled across these on midway.com:

For slightly more money, I could get M1 turrets installed at the factory, though. Does anyone have any experience or advice on either of these setups?

Go factory and don't look back. The Stony Point's have a sloppy fit and are none too accurate.

You guys just confirmed for me what I was already thinking. Thanks a ton!

Look at the CUSTOM DIAL SYSTEM (http://www.leupold.com/VX-3CDS/)directly from the horse itself.

You should be able to order them for your model scope...maybe.

I looked at that, and it is available for my scope. I'm a bit of a noob, though, and so all of the factors that they ask for seemed a bit daunting: altitude, temperature, etc. It also seemed like that would limit, not only the bullet (type, weight, etc.) but also the location (altitude and temperature) where I could shoot. Since I'm more of a casual shooter, I thought I'd prefer something a bit more manual so that I could learn some and tweak to my heart's delight no matter where I am or what I'm shooting.

I called Leupold this morning, and they told me to just ship them the scope with a letter included describing the work that I wanted done to the scope. Is this standard operating procedure for them? It seems a bit odd to me for my scope to just arrive at their facility, "unsolicited".

Standard. If they have a question, they'll contact you. Make sure you put your phone number, e-mail and return shipping addy in your letter.

Sent in my scope two Saturdays ago. Got a call the following Sunday confirming the work to be done, and had my scope back in hand the following Friday. The entire thing took less than two weeks, and the entire first week was simply due to the fact that I shipped my scope via the cheapest (and consequently, slowest) route possible. Leupold worked on the scope and shipped it back to me with in 7 days.

Thanks everyone for the advice.

Now go out there and play with your new turrets.

Let us know how they work, and if they are adjusted correctly.
