Welcome to LRH. Great place here.
I havent held either scope in my fat hands so get a grain of salt. Husky is well reveiwed by folks I trust so I would say its a good option. The burris unit is what the future looks like. Of course the first nav units in cars were junk also so be careful. The concept of the burris and the addition of 1200 yd range on animals+ an autocalculated elevation solution and weather corrections and windage calls combined with a horus reticle make it "If in working condition" the deadliest quickest scope currently for sale. This is the wave of the future but its a $1500 gamble to see if they hit it right. I may try it out this summer. A lot of guys wont agree for many reasons but if these things will work as advertised and be reliable I would take that system over anything out there. Even if the RF messed up you still have a horus reticle with 1200+ yd capability. This is a 3rd gen scope so maybe the bugs are worked out. Are you a gambler? Ive always been a gambler I bought the 1st LRF in my part of the state, 1st shepherd(yes I am older than 20 lol) and 1st nightforce. 2 outa 3 aint bad even though Im known locally for being a liar for a few years till other guys started killing stuff at 300 with inlines and 1k with a rifle. Its just kind of a $1500 roulette spin till some of them get beat up inj a truck for 4 months.

Per the NRA "long range STARTS at 600".
If your gun kicks get a brake....and some muffs. Unless your a masochist then its ok. Except you won't shoot as well.
