 I'm not sure about that scope, but it appears that you have to turn it more than one full revolution to go from 10 meters to infinity.  I would turn it all the way in to start with , and then read low to high as you go, stopping where you need to be. In other words, thirteen meters is one full turn less than 100 meters, approximately.
   
 By The Way- What the heck kind of a name is RONG, anyway?  Howdy

just so you don't do it the rong way-- turn clockwise until stop ---this is infinity, and like most leo will probably past the mark depending on the scope, counter clockwise takes you back to close objects, which should be apparent just looking thru the scope. don't count on settings to be calibrated to the actual distance.

I know it from 10 meters to infinity, i confuse why the mark number have out of order.I used many AO scope,10->15->20->30->50...............
but this scope 10->30->25->20->18->16...........
 
what that mean?
how use???
 
IF i want to set parallax in 15 meter.
 
turn objective clockwise to pic 1 position or 2 position?

  rong1-  Ignore the numbers. Look through scope, turn slowly until clear.

Sounds like he is saying his adjustment markings are out of order on the barrel?

Turn the AO focus ring COUNTERCLOCKWISE (when looking throgh the eyepeice)until it stops.

next:

1 Turned CLOCKWISE from 10m->30->25->20->18->16 ,but it no numerical order.

OR

2 IF Turn "COUNTERCLOCKWISE" from (first circle) 10m->13->14->16->18->20->30->40 (second circle)->50->100->200->400?

which is right?

Why dont you take a digital photo of it and send the photo to Leupold and ask them if the scope is marked correctly and if so if they can provide an explanation.  I dont ever pay much attention to the markings on the front parallax because I'm at the other end of the scope and I just turn it untill it works.

I have this scope and it is marked correctly. On this particular scope there is more than one revolution between the near and infinity settings.

In your owners manual it tells you to turn the AO counter clockwise as you are looking at the scope from the eye piece until you get to the 10m. You may have to turn it until it stops and then back to 10m if you are on the second revolution. This is the closest setting. Now when you turn the AO clockwise to 13 and then 14. The 100 that is between the 13 and 14 up higher is the setting on the next revolution. Or another way to say it is the numbers are in sequence and if a number is higher like in your sequence from your post it is that value on the NEXT revolution.

Also do not expect that the values are correct for a specific yardage. More than likely they are close. Mine are quite close but from what I understand is that they will vary a little since everyone's diopter is set differently for their eyes.

Wow so this is what Yoda feels like.
