Re: Gunwerks is endorsing Vortex??

I just mounted one of the new Vortex VHS 4X16X50 LR ffp on a Remington 308 LTR. It is a good thing for long range shooting, and easy to use, but the reticle is a bit "busy" for my taste in a hunting scope. I have tried a lot of differant optics, and I still prefer the HUSKEMAW for speed and accuracy in hunting situations.

    do you know what the price diffrence between the two? Im just curious. I know that the Leupold VX3s are alot more money than the HSs, and those are the scopes that they are based off.
    I also find most reticules too busy, unless the lines are fine.

    Personally I dont understand the difficulty of using the MOA or Mill reticules and dials, and they save a substantial amount of $$.

    Huskemaw @ just under $1300, Vortex HSLR just under $900. In 2012 I took an Oryx in New Mex. and an Oryx/Gemsbok plus 5 more head of plains game in Africa w/ the Huskemaw so I admit partiallity. Ranges from 187 yards up to 605 yards.
