Leupold turret hex key size?
What is the size hex key do I need to zero my turret on a 8.5-25X50 L/R scope. My set goes down to 1/16, but thats to big!
.050 is what fits my standard Leup turrets (M1's are larger) and that is the next size down from 1/16 in allen key sets

Correct on that .050 size. It's the smallest in the little Bondhus eight wrench set.
The turret screws are soft,
The stainless 4-40 (I think) set screws are real soft and the socket strips out rather easily. I replace them with USA made black set screws, from MSC. I'm on my second or third box (less than $5) because I give them to friends when they buy a new scope. Order a dozen of the .050 hex wrenches, USA quality of course, when you order screws.
One time of having the turret come loose when dialing up to take a shot at an elk and you will never trust those screws again.
