Re: My 6.5 x 284 Build
I guess it was the matter of simplistics! I know it was a few dollars more, however, in all the categories I was comparing them to, the Huskemaw won. I guess to start was the overall size. The weight was equal at 23 oz's, but the Vortex was wider with the long windage turret. The Vortex had a OAL of 15.5" compared to the Huskemaw at 13.6". The Huskemaw seemed more compact but with long range capabilities. I did not like how busy the Vortex reticle appeared (EBR-1 MOA Reticle). The Huskemaw had an 8 MOA reticle for wind. Overall the the Huskemaw had a nicer finish and the glass was clearer than the Vortex. I guess it all comes down to a matter of preference also. Both scopes have custom turrets available. The Huskemaw had 1/3 MOA adjustments to the Vortex 1/4 MOA adjustments. The Huskemaw comes with two turrets. A black turret to obtain your data and a blue one to send in with your data to have laser etched. Also both scopes have zero stop capabilities.
I would not discourage anyone from buying a Vortex scope they are really nice, however, after comparing the two the Huskemaw is what I want.
