At 8 1/4 pounds it is heavy but I carried a Weatherby Accumark this past elk season for 9 days without too much trouble but if I can keep the weight down that would be a good thing.
Im looking for something that has turrets to dial the range. I have a leupold 4.5 - 14 scope with the Boone and crocket reticle on my Accumark which works fine but Im looking to expand my horizons so to speak.
I was considering a Huskemaw scope
but one of my hunting buddies said there are a lot of scopes out there that would accomplish what I want to do. I was leaning towards the Huskemaw
because it seems like it would be farily simple in the field. To be honest the spinning of turrets and counting clicks or hashmarks is intimidating to me.
I anticipate a budget of about $1,200 to fund a scope purchase. If anyone has any scope recommendations for me that would be great. Im feeling a bit overwhelmed with all the chocies out there right now.
Thanks in advance. Mike
If weight is an issue then the Leupold MK 4 would be the way to go.
The night force is very heavy and so are the Huskemaw and IORs so
check the weight of each scope.
All of the scopes mentioned are very good and you should make your on
And don't be intimidated by the turrents. in order to shoot long ranges
you will have to learn to use and trust them.
