Scope options?

Just picked up my 700 Rem. Sendero in a 7mm. What's the better scope for a long range rig. The Huskemaw, or Grey bull scopes?

Or do I go with a Nightforce?

Re: Scope options?

Both look pretty sweet. If it was me I would prob go with the grey bull. Im a big Leupold fan and they have a great customer service/ warranty service if something was to ever happen to it. Im not saying Huskemaw doesn't its just I dont own one. I would just go with the company that has been around for awhile. Just my opinion... Hope this helps....

I highly recomend the Huskemaw. Had one on my 7 STW that I sold and thought it was a great scope. I like the Huskemaw turrets better, and find the reticle less confusing than the Grey Bull. Also like the ranging feature on the eyepiece end of the Huskemaw.

Re: Scope options?

Of the 3 that you mentioned I'd take the Nightforce in a heart beat.


Leupold doesn't repair scopes moified by others to my knowledge. Huskemaw is a new kid on the block and Nightforce is time tested and the customer service is top notch IME

Re: Scope options?

Edober, what is your criteria, whats important to you? For example things like quality of glass, reliability, ruggedness, weight, cost, type of turrets, moa increments, reticles, distances/type of shooting, warranty, manufactures viability to stay in business...what's important to you. Define your criteria as much as possible and the choice may become easier for you and others to offer suggestions/feedback.

Definitely the NF. The others just dont comapre in over all quality construction and function, not to mention choice of reticles.

NF no questions. Proven scopes, customer service is absolutely the best I have ever had to work with, best reticle options (NP-R1) and they have the best feeling turrets in my opinion.
