Sometimes the windage turret saddle is a little far out on your scope tube and won't 'fit' in the normal 5 inch gap between the rings...so you turn the front rings to give you more space.  Or you could turn them the other way because maybe the objective bell of the scope is getting in the way because the tube is a little short.
