Zero stop is a must in my opinion. I don't have it on my VX7L 4.5-18 and believe me, it is a feature not to be overlooked for long range hunting applications. When you are in the field and not sure whether you have made one turn past zero or two (Yes it will happen to you), it is impossible to know where your scope is without field verifying again. This can be a real problem in a hunting situation, as actual shooting is required.
Time and again I am hearing that all you need to do with X brand scope is dial the yardage and squeeze the trigger. My concern with the yardage marks on the Huskemaw (or any other manufactures) scope turret is this: It would seem that any
change in any
variable effecting velocity such as bullet manufacturer, altitude, velocity, temperature etc would create a situation that cannot be compensated for with only yardage marks. One would think that you would need to be able to calculate these variables and be able to dial them into your scope. When I purchased my Leupold, one of the perks they included was this turret which they built for me based upon information I provided to them, i.e. bullet bc, velocity, altitude, etc. I had not even received the turret before I realized that I wanted to test other bullets and that turret would be basically worthless for any other testing I may want to do.
Please understand, I am in no way knocking the Huskemaw scope, I have never so much as looked through one, although I hope to have such an opportunity in the future. I do, however, think it is a mistake to portray that one can simply dial in a range with no thought to variables and get the same results with any repeatability.
Again, thank you for your review, I will go back and read it more thoroughly.
