I have been a happy Huskemaw Blue Diamond scope user for many year. Their system is tailored to long range hunters like me. I like their Hunt Smart Reticle which is simple and clean with straight forward wind hold marks. The custom yardage turrets are about as simple as it gets in the heat of the moment. I have one turret made for shooting at home at low elevation in Wisconsin and another for high elevation Western hunting. The glass quality and construction is right up there with the other best long range scopes on the market.
Huskemaw scopes come with a numbered turret for counting clicks (not MOA or MIL). After mounting your scope, you must shoot your gun and collect click data out as far as you can. You will then log into Huskemaw's custom turret ordering program and enter your muzzle velocity, bullet BC, and a few other pieces of information including the click data that you collected. Custom turrets cost $50 each.
There is not a computer ballistics program and chronograph combo in existence that can be trusted to be 100% accurate without validating by shooting and collecting real world data. Huskemaw's program will "True" your ballistic solution to match your click data by massaging the BC number if needed before creating your custom turret. This truing step is the key to a perfectly accurate custom yardage turret.
We do sell an optional MOA turret that we can ship with your scope to use until you order your custom turret(s).
Huskemaw Blue Diamond Series 3-12x42 Rifle Scope
The Huskemaw Optics 3-12 Long Range Scope is the most advanced Ballistic Compensating rifle scope available. With technical advancements like True BC, the Rapid Field Ballistic Compensator and our simple yet powerful Hunt Smart range finding and windage compensating reticle. The 30mm main tube, 42mm objective lens, and side focus parallax correction dial make the 3-12 LR scope an outstanding choice for both varmint hunters and target shooters, but it also includes special features for the big game hunter. Ballistic compensation and parallax adjustments are easily made without breaking shooting position.
A Lifetime of Precision
Our ballistic compensation technology is the first to accurately determine the drag model and ballistic coefficient (BC) for your bullet in your system. The 3-12 is new in the lineup to take advantage of a long range hunting situation, and it is the first and only scope with our patent pending windage compensation technology - anyone shooting at extended to long-range distances in hunting conditions, without windage compensation is just guessing.
Most scope manufactures hype the light transmission lens coatings, and overall image quality to try to differentiate their high end products from their low end offerings. We designed the optical system and the coating specifications to compete with the best, and with the 3-12, you have a scope that compensates for your systems True BC Profile, not one reticle that's supposed to fit all trajectories. For each customer, we build a Custom RFBC Turret that precisely compensates for your load's bullet drop and windage.
Our rifle scope was designed and built by hunters for hunters. Our philosophy dictated a rugged construction of the highest quality, along with real improvements that double the effective range over any competing product. It all adds up as the best rifle scope for long range or precision hunting, backed by a Lifetime Guaranty.
