What's the purpose of the Zero reset turrets.
Once you have adjusted your windage and elevation to your target, why would you set it back to zero?

You're setting the turret clicks back to zero but the reticle itself doesn't move when you do this. If you then 'dope your scope' for a particular shot, you can easily recover the base sight-in setting afterwards without counting clicks.

You set your turrets to zero after you zero your scope so that if you ever adjust your elevation or windage for a long shot you can easily return your scope to how it was zeroed. If you never use your turrets once your scope is zeroed zero reset turrets have no added value but since laser rangefinders have become common, many hunters are shooting distances where they need to adjust their turrets.
