Picture of my Huskemaw scope

This is my 3 month old coyote gun built by Jim See, Center Shot Rifles and he did the camo, too.

Also pictured is my new Huskemaw Scope. I am thrilled with it. You may have heard that I am now a dealer. Huskemaw Scopes - Buy Here





Shown above with the dust caps off. Also missing is the custom ballistic turret cap which I will order after calculating my drops. The use of a custom ballistic cap, of course, is optional. Some don't like them. I sure do.


To the left, you can see the range finding yardage ring (4, 5, 6, 7, 8). That works with the vertical windage hold-off hash marks on the horizontal reticle. There are 3 of them (1 moa apart), 1, 2 and 3 moa tall. If you hold the correct sized one up to cover the back-to-brisket...turning the yardage ring to get proper coverage...the resultant yardage is your range. That feature is comforting for a heavy rain or snow fall where most range finders don't work.

In the picture, I don't think you can quite make out the "zero index" on the top turret. It enables you to never make a mistake by being off one whole revolution on your yardage. Been there...done that. Nice whitetail buck missed in 2002 at 525 yards. I thought it was a chip shot, how could I miss him at that range? I killed him the next day after I figured it out.

I also have that feature on my Nightforce scope, which I also love, by the way. I have a Kenton Industries cap on it. These things are not that difficult to adapt for changing conditions. In SD this spring, I killed a rock at 900+ yards with this gun and my Kenton cap on top of a NF scope. The adjustments for conditions were simple, easier than using a chart when the same conditions changes had to be dealt with. I really think you will see the custom ballistic cap concept used more and more in the future.

Below is a picture of the Huskemaw version of a cap. You may notice the windage in moa is printed on the top row. No need to look to your chart. And since the clicks are in 1/3 moa, one full revolution is 20 moa. This means most long range loads get to 1,000 yards in only one revolution. Combined with very good glass and with all those other features it is a very good value.



This feature is really important for those fast-moving moments in the field as your giant mule deer keeps moving and you have to keep ranging, clicking, ranging and clicking, etc.

Re: Picture of my Huskemaw scope

I hear they have very low internal adjustment. What is the exact amount?

Re: Picture of my Huskemaw scope

That looks pretty nice, Len. One question about the click value--it's labeled as both 1/3 MOA and .36" at 100 yds. Since 1/3 MOA is only .349" at 100 yds only one can be correct.

The turret labeling looks like many scopes with "centimeter clicks" and since .36" @ 100 yds is actually .1 Mil it's probably a safe guess that's what they are and they merely rounded it off to 1/3 MOA to make sense for those whose eyes glaze over when they hear the term "Mil."

Don't get me wrong, I think that's about the perfect click value for what we do--not too big, not too small--and of course works really well with Mil reticles, but the exact value should probably be clarified. One turn is either 20 MOA or 20.63 MOA (6 Mils), it can't be both. I know it may sound nit-picky, but it's enough to add up on really long shots. Send one out to me and I'd be happy to measure!

I have owned one since Jan '08, and have posted numerous positive posts on
the scope and Huskemaw's customer service.
Very satisfied customer of Huskemaw.

Any word on the review of the Huskemaw that I think Ernie was working on?

Jim, why don't you email Ernie your question.

Jon, I'll find out.
