    Computer generated is not hard to do Holly if you have the turret in front of you. Just a little trial and error on paper then Laser print on plastic. Avery sell some very nice Silver laser labels up to 1 label per sheet size. I've used it for side wheels as well as turrets.

    Stickers

    Yeah rob but they are stickers . this is for the wifes rifle and she needs it simple . so a continious tape with plain numbers on for the turret would be good . she is akin to blaster bates . spends hours on the bench coverting live pellets into dead ones . ( expensive ) so number0 on the top turret equals ( zero ) 35 yards number two equals 40 and so on .it will make it simpler for her ( like me ) must be able to get a sticky tape with numbers on some where ??? HOLLY:)

    PS chair gun hair gun , i hate chairgun .:)

    Not sure you could actually get a generic tape to work as all scopes have a different number of clicks per full rotation and nearly all the turrets have a different circumference, meaning the marks would not fall inline with the clicks.

    I use white pin stripe tape (lots of colours and widths available) from Halfords and the like.
    Mark up with fine tip felt pens.

    Don't stick anything on your turret.

    Instead write the clicks on your sidewheel.

    Next. ???

    Does

    Does not matter , just as long as she can get a reference . IE if number one then ten divisions to number two . thus 35 yards becomes one point three or such . just a simple tape with numbers ??? HOLLY:)

    Well !!! :eek:

    I'm surprised your nous isn't sufficient for you to work that out. ??? :eek:o

    Instead of printing 10,15,20,30 etc yards print the number of clicks on the sidewheel at those ranges.

    Good dog Holly !!! I though that even you could do that. :shot:

    What numbers do you want printed and how long does the tape need to be Holly? If you can scribble something and upload a picture of it I may be able to help.
