The good reviews come from people who actually own and use them. You can tell they were designed by hunters and it shows.

You are absolutely right Gary. I have owned and used NF, Leupold, and Huskemaws , and know several other shooters that have used the Huskemaw for long range precision shooting for quite some time. I also find many negative comments about the Huskemaw totally unsubstantiated, or the result of the person not knowing how to set up and use the scope properly.

They have certainly been behaving like a successful company, building their distribution network and promoting the product heavily. I'm quite surprised at the number of people that are aware of the scopes, and either own one or are considering buying one. I think they are here to stay. It's a solid product that has found a growing nitch with people wanting to get into long range shooting,

Re: Greybull or huskemaw???

Well, I don't know how long I am going to be around but as long as I am here I might as well have the best tool for the job.

I was looking at .257 and .264 bullet holes at 400 yards with mine yesterday at the range. Sure is nice not setting up the spotting scope. Also nice to be able to measure shots with the reticle for adjustments when necessary.

Re: Greybull or huskemaw???

I have 3 Huskemaws as of this moment and am planning on purchasing 1 more in the near future. I purchased my first one 4 yrs ago. I too was concerened about buying a new product that no one else I knew had ever heard of. 20 yrs ago guys considering buying a Nightforce probably had the same concern"I wonder how long they will be around?"

Re: Greybull or huskemaw???

I do not own a huskemaw but I did use one once and it was as advertised, I was impressed. All that being said my current hunting scopes are VX3 LR ( side focus ) with Darrell Holland reticles and Kenton elevation turrets installed. I like the hold and dial because I can go to different areas and very easily set up for those conditions without having to change out dials. I like the size and weight of the Leupolds with the glass being acceptable.

For comparison my tactical rifles have Nightforce, Leupold Mark 8, Mark 6 and Vortex Razors. The Mark 6 I like so much I pulled it off my 5R and it is going to go on a 6.5 x 47 Lapua that I am building for a Antelope rifle. I replaced the Mark 6 with the Razor.

To confuse the issue more, I also just bought a Vortex Viper HS LR 4-16x44 w/ dead hold bdc reticle for my 17 Tactical coyote rifle and so far it has been outstanding. If it only had the XLR reticle it would be the perfect all around 1000 yard hunting scope.

All that being said, either one will work just fine.

Oh one more tidbit, CS at Leupold sucks lately if it is needed. I called 5 days in a row asking the same question from 5 different people and got 5 different answers. I sent a nasty email and I have not heard a word back. Highly dissapointed.
