Exactly the point. Since this is not a mechanical zero stop, you can't trust it. You can't just put the Wyoming MOA turret the night before and expect it to work. You need to resight the gun again since the Wyoming turret is mounted by two Allen screws into a smooth cylinder. Not a "plug and play" system.

Regardless of the system, changing anything on an optic the night before a hunt sounds like a horrible idea. That being said, a lot of scopes us the same system. If the scope is where you want it, installing the new turret cap to the zero line without moving the turret itself should leave the scope where it was. All the same, not really a night before the hunt modification.
As far as the illumination part, you might have gotten a different answer if you were looking at the RS3. They might have assumed you were looking for a lower magnification illuminated scope. A 2.5-15 and a 5-30 are a very different class of scopes.
Setting up a rifle to dial a 300 yard shot on an animal with vitals as big as an elk with a 7rm just seems like making something simple far too complicated.
