Re: What happened to goodgrouper?

I see GoodGrouper on Benchrestcentral.com quite a bit.

I remember the thread in question and it wasn't good.

Re: What happened to goodgrouper?

I thought it was because of huskemaw scopes not the henson bullets. BTW I did some testing with the 265gr HATS but only on animals.

800 yard whitetail doe





870 yard cow elk



As much as I respect GG I did not agree with his testing methods on those bullets. As far as the guy who represented Henson GG and I were in complete agreement. If it were not for that guy I bet the henson bullets would be more widely used. I agree with GGs assessment of the huskemaw also, but am not as outspoken. I think a real asset to this community was lost.

I don't see any forums on that website, just an offer to donate to the domain. Is that site going out?

Look it up unless the thread was deleted. As far as my assessment based on handling one of these....junk. Learn to dial using MOA get a PDA with exbal or one of the other fine programs out there. Try a npr2 reticule if you just refuse to dial.

I searched GG posts and didn't see anything about the Huskemaw scopes. If junk, that is curious since the same company makes parts for both Huskemaw and NF.

I have a 5.5x22 with the NPR2 reticle.

BEST of THE WEST?? REALLY THE BEST?


The couple rifles I've shot with Huskemaws worked as advertised and seemed to work well and fast, not my cup of tea as I prefer a Nightforce type reticule and dialing to a ballistics program. The two guys I know would not by another but it had little to do with the optic and more to do with the company.
