I am considering purchasing a Super Sniper scope.  However, I have a question about the exposed target knobs.  Once I zero my scope at the range, won't the knobs move every time I put my rifle in my gun case, so that every time I shoot my rifle I will have to initially adjust my windage and elevation to get back on target?  Or is this not really a problem. 

 

I have a Nikon Monarckh 6.5 X 20 with target knobs on my target .308, but it has the turrent covers so that my adjustments don't shift.  That is what got me thinking about the SS exposed knobs.

 

Also, one other question. . . this scope will be going on a heavy barrel ruger M77 VLE in .223.  I shoot at different public ranges, some are only 100 yards , and others extend out to 400 yards.  Will the 16X Super Sniper be suitable for 100-400 yard ranges, or would I be better with a variable scope?

It won't be a problem,

 

Once you zero, even if it did move.  You just move it back to the range you want it on...

 

Second,

This scope will go to 1000 with no problem, due to the brilliant design of having massive moa in the scope...

 

Third,

The resale value is awesome...  If you wanted to upgrade later, you would get what you payed for it...

For your rifle,caliber and application the fixed 16 will be a good choice.

I can't recommend the SS enough.

 

As Phil stated, once you zero the weapon, you back the 3 set screws off, pick up the turret and place it on "zero".

 

I have never had the turrets move on mine at all, but as a reference, you can always do a visual check and make sure your still showing your turret at zero.

 

I don't mean to make that sound too elementary, but I made it simple for the guy that may read this thread and NOT know this SOP......

I have had my SS 20X  on a 24" AR varmit for almost 11/2 years now with approx. 1600 rounds down the pipe. I have probably cased and uncased it 100 times and the turrets have never moved and this is after replacing the factory turret o-rings with ones slightly smaller in OD to give me a better feel of the turret clicks. I love my SS.
