I think guys have had very good luck with Shepherd Scopes: THE ONLY RANGE FINDING SCOPE THAT DOES NOT REQUIRE 3 HANDS TO OPERATE
( There is a link with the all caps sentence )
I think the Shepherd is really easy to work with once you get it zeroed...or dialed in. You'd probably save a few bucks as well...not knocking Huskemaw. I'm sure they're an amazing scope and probably a great value...but if you're just starting off....you might want to ease into things. BTW, I've never seen either the Shepherd or the Huskemaw. I own or have owned many of the brands out there...too many to list...from the low end of a Tasco at one time to NightForce, IOR and Premier Heritage now.
The other alternative is for you to study about m.o.a ( Minute of Angle ) and mil-radian. Once you get a handle on these two....get a decent ballistics program...your world opens up tremendously. I recently purchased a Vortex Viper 6.5-20x By 50mm scope from a sponsor / vendor here, Cameraland...for $249. I've also purchased a couple Sightron SIII scopes..new for slightly over $700 a piece. What I'm driving at....you don't necessarily need fancy reticles for you to make shots at long ranges. You can get a lot of "Bang for your buck" if you are flexible...say being able to work with m.o.a scopes.
Good Luck! It's always nice to hear of more folks picking up our sport....and making sure our heritage stays alive.
