Hi,
I have what I am sure is a dumb question....

I just received a (brand new from SWFA) SS10X42MOA scope and was mounting it up and noticed the turrets appear to be swapped.
The top turret is marked "bullet impact-> R"  and the side turret is marked "bullet impact -> UP"

uhmmmm. isn't this backwards ?
by design ? I've never had a scope what wasn't elevation on top turret.

I might get to take it out and check this out this weekend and see whats up - but I happened to be on forums and it it weekend so no one to call to confirm and thought why not post...

When the “up” turret is on top of the scope, on which side is the “right” turret?

Just checking the first obvious thing.

Don't sweat it.  I mess with scopes more than most and I've done the same thing recently: I received a scope for review, slapped it onto a rifle and headed to the range.

When I got there, it took me a few minutes to realize that the windage turret is on the wrong side of the tube.

It happens.   I remember as a kid turning the knobs on a scope and being frustrated because I got no adjustment - took a while to realize they were caps covering the adjustments. That was a long time ago.

Many people would have logged off and never said a word about it ever again.  I commend you for coming back and admitting to it.

It happens, glad the issue wasn't the scope, your issue was easily addressable - so: win!

Lol, I would never have thought to ask that question, yet so obvious when I read it. Ah, the hazards of rear focus.
