    Hiya, has anyone any ideas to make or buy something that will prevent you being a full turn out on your clicks. I'm sure someone out there has had the same problem which is very frustrating when it happens.

    Maybe a fat o ring to fill the gap under the turret

    Ive had a ring made up in the past for just this reason on a deben.
    Alloy ring that will sit under turret ,grub screw to lock it in place. Just needs enoigh clearamce to let you go mayne half a turn down past your zero but not a full turn. Or as memtioned a stack of orings

    I would think one of the 3d printing folks could make something up fairly easily?

    if the ring and the turret have the same diameter, jou will notice a gap and so most of the times prevent shooting while being 1 or 2 turns out!

    That’s why I made it with four I think you call it “grubsrews” so you can adjust it up or down.

    You say that you made it, I was going to ask where did you buy it from.

    I made it for a friend and competitor but it also depends on what kind of turret you have.
    For myself I made a delrin turret with carbon sleeve thet bottoms out 10 or so click’s past zero, like this

    I can measure the diameter if you'd like me to.

    Maestro turret is 3d printed and adjustable to solve this issue.

    Big Nikko mk3 turrets are the same whether it is mil-dot or Nato ......

    A simple but ugly solution instead of an 'O' ring with grub screw is to use a very small plastic cable tie under the turret and cut it after the tie section and then the thicker 'tie' section acts as your turret buffer. You can carefully trim the tie section sides down to get it to fit under if it is tight. I think there are 4.5 turns of travel on the top turret.....so I dialled the turret back down from max height so it was mid centre travel and applied the tie under that. That gave me a full 2.5 turns of turret travel above the tie which was ample even to get down to 10 yards. Then zero your scope at 30 yards from the new bottom of travel.
    I tried it for a while under a Rowan top turret and it worked fine but my ocd said it looked f'ugly.......it still didn't solve the problem of those ugly green turret caps on the windage turret(don't want to spray it and too thin to anodize.)
