100mm side wheel + a little grinding + 12" brass bar strip + 3 rivets = steampunk side wheel.

 

I went with brass because my field target Marauder has some other brass features.

Next is to add my range tape markings for holdover.

Very good Idea!!  Will save you a nice chunk of change if you were going to buy a custom wheel!!  Only suggestion would be use aluminum as it would be somewhat lighter,  I have seen guy's make offset wheels that were so heavy that they would move the parallax knob when let go of!!    but good thinking for sure!!  Nice work!!  J.L.

A Yep, aluminum would be a good choice. I just wanted to pick up on the other brass pieces on the gun. I could have gotten by with a thinner gauge but my hardware store was out.
