    Nice tutorial.  Thanks for sharing.  Now, what plenum is hiding behind the scenes? 😉  Maybe you can do something with this, by putting a word in the right ear at FX…

    Thanks for the video. Another tip. Instead of calculating each distance individually press on this guy


    Here you can set up all your clicks for your distances on one page. Or rather it will do it for you. 

    This is great also if you just want a range card.

    Thank you so much !  When you guys take the time to do these videos and tutorials to actually help all the newer people this is the very reason that we are with you. I personally Thank and applaud you for taking the time to make this and share your knowledge with all of us. 👍 😁 There are alot of newer people rolling in the sport and hobby and this will not only help them but also win them over.  +1 and huge Thanks again. 

      

    Next time just cut the toe off an old sock and stretch it over The plenum area just for fun so the questions start coming haha. (joking of course lol ) ((This is why I am not sponsored of course !!)) ==another lame attempt at fun and humor.  The sponsorship thing has nothing to do with my lack of skill and inability to talk or make great videos hahaha. 

    Thanks again ! and wishing you guys the best.

    I use Adobe Illustrator to make mine, print them on regular paper then put tape over them and cut them out. A small piece of tape on the end to hold it in place, wrap around and tape the other end. That way they can be removed and re-zeroed if need be. I mark 5 yard increments and extrapolate in between distances. It works pretty well.

    I just further simplified my turret tape method a little more. I was trying to space the numbers on paper to match the spacing on my scope turret. That was never very accurate. Now I cut out the yardage numbers and apply to the double sided tape leaving the turrets markings visible. This allows me to place the numbers more accurately and still see and use my turret mil numbers. Bill

    Just curios, is the elevation turret on the Discoveries bassackwards? Looking at the turret in the photo above it appears to show clockwise to increase yardage.Didn't know if anyone might know. Haha, maybe one of those photo optical illusions.

    Yep looks backward to me and I have a Discovery scope that works like my other scopes in that respect. Bill

    Hahaha, sorry guys you’re eyes do not deceive you!  I put those stickers on the turret just for a picture the night that I made them and did it backwards like an idiot…   haha, my fault.   
    I did range them the next day and it was fun, they work fantastic, I was amazed at how much just a few grains actually changes POI.  It was nice to mark with two different colors and be able to shoot RD Monsters and slugs with the same set up and not have to recalibrate anything.
