I have both of these on older SSG’s both from Quantico Trials…Supposedly

 

I have two problems.

 

The first I believe is similar to the Kahles ZFM 6x but this is the 10x I run out of adjustment at 1000yrds I am only hitting 800yrds (~780yrds)… I have done what I can up top but have no manuals for tuning…

 

Opposite problem with the Leupold Stevens M2 When lining up 1000yrds she is hitting at ~820yrds…Also cannot find a manual to make fine tuning corrections…

 

Both on older SSG platforms both very respectable shape show signs of usage but I know they have an even greater potential I can pull off the shots but would like to see the correct picture…

We Marines are kinda slow, go over it again.
You are running out of elevation on the Kahles , can't reach 1,000-yard dope (you top out at 780 yards), true?

With the Leupold, you say the opposite is true, and I'm not sure I get that part, please clarify.

Are they on flat bases or canted bases?

Figure out real-world 800-yard dope, then make sure it is consistent.  If it ain't what you expect and you can't figure out why, don't worry about it too much so long as it is consistent.

Seems odd, though.

The problem you originally posted: was that a problem encountered with the reticle or with the dope put in on the turret?

Reticles with drops are always relative (unless the turret was built for your gun, your projectile, your velocity, your dope, your average temp, your elevation with respect to sea level, and your average barometric pressure.)  Anything short of that is an approximation.

Just had Leupold and Stevens give me a call and I am sending it in for repair.  They had me disassemble it over the phone and found some shavings where they shouldn't be so I asked what they could do they said they will fix it...I am making sure to Insure it and Certify It I would hate for happy hands(I don't even trust leupold)...
 
Has anyone ever even seen a reticle like this???

I have no experience with that reticle.

Let us know how this goes  for you.  I hear good things about Leupold's CS, but don't buy Leupold products, so I have no experience in that area.

Just so there is no confusion these two rifles and scopes mentioned above have nothing to do with the rifle I just sold.  The scope is in mint shape...
