    The PASSION 3X Ballistic Turret System is only available for PASSION 3X 3-9×42 and PASSION 3X 4-12×42. It is calibrated to use select Hornady ammunition. We recommend that the user practices at long range, and confirms the actual bullet placement at long range distances. Exact bullet placement can be affected by elevation, wind, temperature, and the angle of the target. Practice long range shooting to assure bullet placement on your target. For best results, use these Hornady cartridges:

    • 223 Remington: Use Hornady American Gunner ammunition item #80237
    • 6.5 Creedmoor: Use Hornady American Whitetail ammunition item #81489
    • 308 Winchester: Use Hornady American Whitetail ammunition item #8090
    • 30-06 Springfield: Use Hornady American Whitetail ammunition item #81084
    • 300 Winchester Magnum: Use Hornady American Whitetail ammunition item #82044

    How to use this system:

    1. Properly mount and secure the riflescope on your rifle.
    2. Using the proper Hornady ammunition listed above, and without replacing the turret, sight your rifle in at 200 yards.
    3. After your rifle is sighted in, hold the elevation turret tightly in place (do not allow click movement), and remove the center screw located in the center of the elevation turret.
    4. Remove the factory installed turret ring.
    5. Replace the turret ring with the selected caliber custom turret ring.
    6. Align the 200-yard marking on the custom turret with the zero indicator mark located directly under the turret ring.
    7. Replace the center screw to affix the custom turret in place.

    Your rifle is now equipped with a custom-engraved turret that is calibrated to the select Hornady cartridge. To shoot at long distances, you simply need to dial the distance of your defined target. Rotate the turret and align the distance of the target (ex. 400 yards), and set the 400-yard mark on your turret with the zero indicator mark on the body of the main scope tube.
