    Not being a “kack handier” this does not refer to me, But, has any left handed tried to turn their scope upside down to bring the side wheel on the right?, most ft’ers set their scopes high so plenty of room to get the elevation turret clear of receiver, other than front parallax or Kahles could be an alternative to make it easier!, Your thought,.

    How would you adjust the top turret, it would be at the bottom

    Your elevation turret would be a bit tricky to get at.

    I ALWAYS FIND IT EASIER TO LOOK IN THE BIG END, MAKES THE TARGET THAT MUCH HARDER TO HIT! NUMBER 1006 IN MY EXCUSE BOOK!.

    BUT NOT IMPOSSIBLE, YOU WOULD SEE THE GRADUATIONS FROM THE SIDE.

    It's a question that doesn't need answering.

    Dont see why not so long as you remeber which way ti turn elevation turret, as awkqard to get to as it will be.
    For those guessers that hold over once zeroed should be easy

    if you will have enough space to operate a turret on the bottom of the scope - no problems. tried that with Kahles, which has awkwardly placed parallax wheel, kinda works.
    don't listen to anyone, the only thing that matters - is a number of hits on your scorecard. only that number defines a difference between you being a madman or a prophet.

    If I was left handed I'd do this without a second thought, but I guess you have to get rather used to using things designed for right handers.

    Like all Northern monkeys do. ;)
    I gave up on using a shooting glove, it hindered my octopus routine.

    I’m leftie

    After a mare at the classic I Discovered this week that my scope needed to come back an inch and my hook needed to go in 2 inches. Much more comfortable - the byproduct being that with my elliptical side wheel I can now very comfortably range with my left hand ........

    So get an elliptical wheel and leave the scope the right way up
