I own a 2009 Huskemaw
. I have it on a 7mm Rem Mag project I recently finished and in August the 7 was fired for the first time since the project started. Testing the scope was not something I had planned to do however a few friends I shoot with were giving me a good bit of grief for purchasing an "off" brand scope with a funny name and half a reticle. In an effort to (A) prove them wrong and quiet them down a bit or (B) prove them right and I don't want to think about what could happen, we did the following test.
After sighting in at 100y, a 50 round break-in, then chronographing and selecting a load, the rifle shoots better than I imagined it could. Several 1/4 minute groups when I did my part pulling the trigger. I've got a few groups that are bigger but I'm convinced it was my fault.
Knowing the rifle shoots this well, we tested the scope. A target was made on a piece of cardboard approximatly 4' wide and 7' tall. (I know it's big but I had it and used it) Using a marker, we drew a perfectly square cross hair with the bullseye about 2' from the bottom and 4 - 1" pasters arrainged in an 8" square. The target was set at 200Y and the vertical line was checked true with a carpenter's level.
First we fired 3 rounds at the bull to prove zero again. Then moved the elevation knob vertically by 10 clicks and fired a round and 10 more and fired a round until we ware near the top of the target board. Then returned to zero the same way; down 10 and fire one. The points of impact tracked perfectly in both directions. No impact was more than 1/2" from the line and those "misses" were most likely me.
We did essentially the same thing with the windage knob both left and right. Again the Huskemaw scope
Next we did a box test holding one point of aim and moving the point of impact between 4 pasters using the elevation and windage knobs. We shot several "laps" and again, the Huskemaw scope did what it should have; moving consistantly in the intended direction and returning to zero when finished.
We also shot 12 rounds - 3 each at 5x, 10x, 15x and 20x while holding the same point of aim. These 12 rounds were fired randomly through the 4 power settings. When done there was one ragged hole. This proved to me that the power adjustment did not move the relationship between POA and POI.
I have since shot at some steel plates out to 750y and have the dope figured and proven out to that distance. Two weeks ago I took this rifle woodchuck hunting. The fields are kinda thin now but when one was spotted and ranged at 680y, the dope was dailed in, the shot fired and another chuck bit the dust. The closet gremlins didn't mess with the rifle or the scope.
In my humble opinion, the Huskemaw scope does what it is advertised. As mentioned in an earlier comment, time will tell how durable it will be. I'm now curious and when I have some time and ammo loaded, I'm going to try the same test with my other scopes. I'll let you know who passes and fails.
And yes, I would buy another Huskemaw.
