I would like to know if one gets a cds with the leopuld scope can it be covered with a turret cover?This way it will not move from any setting.I have a custom one that sometimes moves when carrying. I want it to lock on a setting so it does not move when carrying the rifle. Or have a cover so it will not move and if I have to change the range I can take off cover and change the range

If anyone has a CDS and Leupold scope and can tell me that it can be covered with a turret cover I would appreciate it. I just want to know that a hunting rifle will be steady and not have to worry about it changing range on someone.I know when I throw the rife over my shoulder with a exposed turret it will move when hiking or carring rifle I am sure you hunters understand,thanks Kev

No, there's no cover for it.  I don't understand the big issue though.  You say you have a custom dial for it?  Those all have a zero stop unless you tell them you don't want that feature.  It cannot be screwed up....it's foolproof.  You can only dial it so far either direction before it stops.  I've got 3 of  them and have never had one move inadvertently.

The problem I have with my custom dial is if you set it on say on 1. for zero at 100 yards, throw rifle over your shoulder and carry it awhile then go to shoot the dial moves say to 2 which is 200 yards or moves the other way I have tighten the screw for it as tight as it will go and it still moves?so I thought a cover would stop the dial form moving and if yo have to change the range take off cover change it.because of this I may get a scope with B&C reticle that Leupold offers

Then you're not using the CDS dial with zero stop as it was intended.  You're using the moa dial that comes with the scope that doesn't have the zero stop, which isn't at all why people buy a CDS scope in the first place.  You have to order the dial through leupold, either a custom yardage dial, or custom moa dial, both will have zero stop. After you have correctly ordered whichever dial you want, even if it moved slightly from where you last set it, it's a foolproof system, with the zero stop.
