This is where you order spare labels for BT turret knobs from HighPowerOptics – either standard IPHY or mil labels, or spare custom ballistic labels that you ordered before. A turret blank is not included with this order, and these labels do not fit standard Swarovski BT turrets. You can order the HighPowerOptics turret blank here:
This is not where you order a custom ballistic label for your BT turret knob. Use this product page only to order replacement labels for a previously ordered custom ballistic label.
Standard labels come with a single-turn (one row of markings) turret label having either IPHY or mil markings, depending on the scope model. We supply two varieties of labels: plain and gloss (see below). These labels are made from durable, weather-resistant polyester films that will last many seasons. The turret is supplied with one label already attached and includes three spare labels, in the event you replace the original label with a custom ballistic label and then later want to go back to the original IPHY/mil label.
We offer an optional two-turn label that has two rows of markings. To rotate the Swarovski BT turret more than one turn, you will need to remove the zero stop from inside the BT turret. To avoid damaging the internal plastic parts in the Swarovski BT turret, we highly recommend that you purchase our BT Turret Tool ($10.95) for removing the zero stop.
Here’s what you get:
- 4 spare labels – either plain or gloss
- Plastic tweezers with a silicone tip for applying labels
- Instructions for replacing labels
We keep your custom label design on file in case you need more labels later. For a replacement custom ballistic label, please indicate the order number for that label. You can enter that order number in the notes section during check-out.
Proudly made in the USA.
Plain vs gloss? We supply labels in two varieties: The plain label has a matte, laser printed surface; and the gloss label has a protective gloss film applied to the laser printed label. The choice between these two labels is mostly cosmetic.
The matte surface of plain label is a better match to the matte surfaces of the rifle scope. The gloss label has slightly darker black background, giving the white font a slightly higher contrast. Offsetting this is a higher specular reflection with the gloss label, which reduces contrast at some angles. In practice, however, specular reflection is rarely an issue because the viewer’s body blocks light from reflecting off the part of the label that is being read (i.e., the part aligned with the dot). While the printing on the plain label is very durable, the bare laser printed surface is prone to slight wear marks. The gloss label is impervious to any visible wear marks. We supply spare labels of both types so that you can try them both and decide which one you prefer.
Weather Resistance: HighPowerOptics turret blanks are made from an engineering polymer that is durable and resistant to moisture and sunlight. The plain and gloss labels use laser printing and durable polyester label materials that are both waterproof and tear-proof. Our labels use permanent adhesives that will not peel from the turret under normal use. Turret and label materials are rated to -22 °F to +158 °F (-30 °C / +70 °C), which is the same temperature rating of Swarovski scopes. Our turret blanks and label products have been subject to rigorous thermal cycling, humidity and UV exposure tests.
