    Sounds like you've answered your own question!

    Click chart is in my head.

    If you have AutoCAD on your PC, producing a turret wrap is easy :D

    To me its up to you people like the click charts and some like marking there turret.
    For me its the click chart. Find it easy to work out plus with my long ranges i have to do a full tern of the turret, so i dont get confused with the click chart.

    I made myself a set of markers much like the ones supplied by rangesports

    Then purchased a length of clear helicopter tape on ebay and wrapped it round turret to protect the markings

    Chairgun produces a reasonable looking turret tape

    Side wheel marked in yards for me and a leupold ballistic chart which is like a tape measure that is spring loaded unto which you write your own numbers on always attached to the scope, it looks like a scope mount

    Trust you to let the cat out of the bag.

    P.S. Just to update you on the bin front ,everything is running very smoothly apart from it being nicked.

    I use the old version of Chairgun to make turret tapes. Chairgun 2. It works on Vista and it produces a better turret tape than the Hawke version of Chairgun. The Hawke version produces an unreadable tape.
    I have a zip file of it. If you PM me your email I can send you the chairgun 2.

    No it has not. Unless you have started a poll about it with at least 123 replies. ;) on the STB forum.;) with a majority of the replies being in agreement.
    ps: this is new EU legislation. Speak to your representatives in Brussels about it.
    ps2: there is also new EU legislation that Chairgun is only allowed in the imperial version.
