    well, I said I'd post some results of my adventures in rifle sighting if they were worth it.

    I'll let you guys decide :D

    shot at 100 yrds. from the garbage bag full of sand on the roof of my car. I figure I was at least 10 feet above the target from where I was shooting, this may account for the lowness. I had to tweak my up/down windage know almost all the way around to get it on. I probably could have done better, but by then my shoulder was about to throw in the towel.

    I did the trigonometry on that very issue, once. If the distance was in fact 100 yards, and the elevation distance was in fact only 10 feet, the difference in impact on the target could be measured only with an accurate set of veneer calipers... maybe. For elevation to make a difference in drop, you're going to have to get a good 30 degrees or more angle of line of sight to your target. (10' at 100 yards is .333 percent angle)

    Agreed, the lowness is a function of your scope setting, not distance above/below target. Looks to me like 3 clicks up and you should be right on (assuming 1/4" clicks).

    is it ok to go more than a full turn on the windage knobs? Will they screw all the way out? I think Leupold has a lock on their windage dials so they wont come all the way out, but I'm not sure... any thoughts?

    Yes, it's fine. They're not coming out. I've made several full turns wihout incident.
