Re: Final opinions

Huskemaw 5x20 Blue Diamond or Nightforce G7 5.5x22. I use both and they are superb, with comparable optic quality and a precise and reliable turret system. The Huskemaw is lighter, more compact, and about $700 less. The Nightforce has a much heavier construction, but the weight and size is not very carry friendly, if that's important. Both have nice reticle designs with 1 MOA windage divisions, but the NF also has a ballistic scale built into the vertical Reticle calibrated to 600 yards. The designer of both scopes, Skip Davidson, has put a lot of thought into these scopes which results in a very efficient hunting design, particularly if you use turrets.

Re: Final opinions

If you are looking for something with a plain reticle, check these out:

Zeiss: Conquest (good), Conquest Duralyt (better), Diavari (best)

Leica: ER series not the old "Leicapolds"

Swarovski (I would recommend Z5 or Z6 but that's just me)

(listed in no particular order of course)
