Re: huskemaw scope issue

The Huskemaw is not 1/3 MOA. It is .3438 per click. Find a program that will let you input a custom MOA for the click value.

    The two Huskemaw 5x20's that I have( one standard and one Blue Diamond) are 3 clicks per 1 MOA as indicated on the turret. That equates to .333/click. Additionally, I have range tested both for turret accuracy to 30 MOA of elevation and that test indicates .33/click for both scopes. Is you value of .3438 a result of actual field testing?

    1/3 MOA is .349 measured inches at 100 yards with one MOA equaling 1.047 inches.

    Agreed, it is .3438 inches per click. But it is 1/3MOA per click.

    I rechronographed my load today in different conditions and the velocity was much slower than previously recorded. I think that I got a misreading as the day I got 3373 was a bright sunny day with direct sunlight and had some ill effects on my chronograph. im now at an avg of 3144

    The blue diamond that I had said .36" per click at 100 yards on the turret and had 60 clicks or 6 mils per turn. That is .1 mil if my math is correct.

    Glad you got it figured out...just can't trust the chrony. I had the opposite problem, it was telling me I was slower and I was missing by 1.5 MOA high at 1000.

    3-12's and 5-20's have slightly different click values.. for whatever reason, the 3-12's are in-fact .36 The guys at Huskemaw will have to give you explanation on that, I can't recall the exact explanation I was given, but it is a fact that the two have a slight difference in gearing.

    And I do believe 8andbait has it right regarding the mil comment*

    In regard to you guys' chrony mis-reads.. what time'a day are you shooting ?? For best readings a guys gotta shoot while the sun is at it's highest AND try time shots during similar sky/cloud condition* If clear, good. If clouded completely, good. IF SUN/CLOUD MIX... not so good! IF SHOOTING IN THE EVENING WHEN SUN IS LOW... (or early morning) not good either* ...you get the drift

    Sun at it's highest (+/-) and during "constant" sky condition* Shoot then and you're readings will be more accurate. Average your readings and use (them) as your ballistic-inputs... world of difference when the "lighting" varies
