Not a scientific answer but I use both brands and cannot tell them apart.

    Thanks for the quick reply. At $600 less that a NF I might have to give one a try. I should have bought one when they were $975.

    Well chalk one up for Night Force, after I took my rifle apart and looked it over, it turns out that my bedding around my recoil lug was chipped away. upon further inspection my recoil lug actually got compressed down against the stock were it still rests. I put the scope on another rifle and box tested it spun it up and down and back to zero with no problems.

    Great, that's what I would expect from NF.

    Ernie I read your opinion on the Huskema scope but my biggest issue with buying a 1000 plus dollar scope is warranty. Im a firm believerin here to day gone tommorrow. If a company hasnt been here for 50 years in todays industry it may not have a chance to succeed . I have been shopping for 2 months and am thinking zeiss conqwest rapid z800 or z 1000 . I do need advise and thank you for your report you did .I wish you would have tried minox and zeiss as well. kellyw

    HG,
    More than anything you are going to need to decide how you want to go about LR.
    Ballistic turret like the Huskemaw or Ballistic reticle like the Zeiss.
    Of course, there are two other options as well, but it looks like you have narrowed it down between these two.
    As far as warranty of the Huskemaw. I put the Huskemaw on a 338 Lapua Improved center-grip XP-100 specialty handgun shooting 300 grain SMK's at 2700 fps. Held zero great-typically shoot 4-shot groups around .4 at 100 off of a bi-pod.
    But I started getting flakes. I sent it in and promptly received a new scope.
