Another vortex scope question

I have several scopes with zero stops and they are great if you are constantly changing elevation. BUT, and I say this from the point of view of a shooter that has done this for several decades, if you are not in a competition, you would never really need it. Off the bench, hunting, casual shooting, you have enough time and are not distracted enough to lose track of what adjustments you made. 99% of your adjustments will be "up" and usually not more than one revolution of the turret, which in my scopes is 25 minutes. Thats enough to dial from 100 yards to 1000 yards. If you are in a time crunch, nobody usually dials elevation, you use the reticle and hold off. That allows you to move quicker and the reticle provides a measuring ability to gauge how far off you missed and what correction you need to make (assuming you missed). If you write your 100 yard zero on tape and stick it on your stock, you always have the reference to figure out how to get back to your zero if you change the scope elevation dial.
