Yes, I would get the Blue Diamond, I have two of these, and, the first (standard one), all in 5x20. The Blue Diamond has more MOA segments on the windage Reticle, higher quality glass, cemented lenses like the Nightforce, and high visibility elevation turrets. I have had the standard model mounted on my LRH, also in 6.5x284 for a few years. No tracking problems with this one, or the two Blue Diamonds. It was the excellent performance of the first one that convinced me to buy the others. I would also say that the quality of the glass in the first one is still equal or better than my other scopes. Low light performance is the same as my Nightforce and Leupolds on all of them. I would also comment that all the turrets I have had made are exactly as specified. I know several others that have had experiences with the Huskemaw similar to mine. There are a lot of negative posts on the Huskemaw, particularly on this site, that I had also read. Fact is, most are based on opinion, not experience. I'm glad I ignored them, it's a good scope!
