    Hahahahaha ! It's just dawned on me, and this is something I never even suspected could happen - so I never bothered to check, - Zeroing indoors at 45 mtrs was a bit hit and miss if you know what I mean (TX200/Hawke Varmint II). One on the bull, next one to the right, next one more to the right...hmmm.. adjust ! On the bull again, next shot to the right etc, etc. Then I saw the light ! The windage turret was actually clicking itself to the right during the recoil of shot, and more again on the next shot. I'm just wondering if I should cough up for a bushnell 10x40 or fill the windage turret with epoxy ? :( What did I really expect for 89 quid ?

    Zero and then take the turret off, reduce the mass and the recoil may not rotate the spindle.

    Moving Tourrettes symptoms

    Make it a bottoming turret? Take it off and make a fibre washer or oring to bottom it out when it is on windage zero........

    Fit an O ring (or sevetal) so that the last few clicks are compressing them.

    You can then still make fine adjustments but the turret should be stable.
