I have a new-to-me older japanese-made bushnell banner fixed 6x32 scope. Once upon a time it had a ballistic turret on top (and was made to have one, complete with small opening in the metal around the turret to read the numbers on the cap. As of now, the old knob is MIA and i'm left with the chunk of tooth'd metal it used to sit on which makes it incredibly difficult to adjust. Can anyone tell me what kind of knob fits there and if there's a source to get one? Thanks!

You'll have to find someone who has got one of those Ballistic Dials.  [ Bullet Drop Compensator is what Bushnell called them. ]  I had a 4X12 Bushnell years ago and the scope came with four different dials for that top turret.  You read the manual and used the one appropriate to your caliber.  

Well, you just want one so you can turn the dial...you need to ask around and see if anyone has got any laying around.  In the old days all the new Bushnells would have had four to begin with.  Somebody's got to have some laying around.

Well, I don't think anyone is going to be selling a little plastic circle like that.  It would be in someone's spare parts bin.  I myself had three extras, but that was 35 years ago.  I have no idea what ever happened to those little guys.

hph04a doesn't need a Caliber-Appropriate one necessarily---he just needs one so he can grab it and turn the elevation knob in order to sight it in.

Ed, thats correct. I don't need the correct one. I've never really trusted those things anyway, just having one that would make turning the dial doable without needle nose pliers would solve my problem. There are some on ebay right now as part of a giant lot, but i'm still hoping another option presents itself. thanks for the pictures, that really helps
