    huskemaw

    I have a huskemaw scope on a custom browning 7 mag. that scope is by far the the best long range scope i have ever used. i always used leupold but no longer. i has perfect tracking and if set up properly can make anyone a great longrange shooter. this fall it I killed a muley at 760 yards the first shot, no LIE.

    The reticle in the Huskemaw has no hack marks on the lower stadia line...just horizontal for windage. They have specially tuned BDC knobs that are calculated for one bullet at one speed and an estimated altitude. You laser the target, dial the BDC a little past the mark and then backs up the dial to the right point and shoot. So if you do the Huskemaw scope you will have to work up a load or decide on a good factory load, chrono it and send that data along with the temperatures you will be hunting in and the elevation above sea level and they will make you a BDC knob for that load...I think that the elevation is good for approx 2000 ft. higher or lower and 20 degrees either way ( but they will tell you all this when you buy the scope and you can buy several knobs for around $85 each if you plan on different loads or different elev., etc). A bit of work, but when it is all done, the system does work...Good shootin! 30-338 ps Kenton Industries will do the same thing for other scopes.. I have the Long Range Hunter on a Lapua and It does work well! And Leupold will make special BDC knobs for their scopes...There..I hope I have corrected my error...Thanks Sendero Man 30-338

    You are incorrect. John Burns does not use the Huskemaw scope. he is not part of the BOTW. He uses Leupold in the show, when he was a part of it.

    Correction..thanks Sendero Man!


    Sendero Man, et al...Thank you for the correction. I was so sure that Burns had used these because of the "Shoot beyond Belief" series that I had purchased which shows John using the BDC system similar to the Huskemaw system, and they surerimpose that reticle over the target prior to his shooting... ( this was when he was affiliated with the show which had the scope on their web site).. that I called GunWerks. They are associated with the BOTW TV show and they produce the Huskemaw scopes. And you are correct...John B did not use the Huskemaw optics on the series. So I apologize for the incorrect details. If you (run 7 ) want to know about their product, I just spent 20 minutes speaking to one of the higher ups and you can get details of their scope by calling them at 866 754 7841. He was very pleasant and informative..Thanks and again sorry for the misleading info! 30-338

    Sendero Man,

    I apologize in advance to 7run for deviating a bit from the scope topic. However, I can't resist asking what you thought of the rifles offered by the Gunwerks guys?

    Thanks,

    DWK

    From what I saw, they are quality rifles...

    One a modified 700 Remington Sendero 7mm STW. And the other a 6-284 set up for long range varmints. They run Broughton barrels, Jewell triggers, top end stocks, good bedding.... Overall.... nice weapon.

    Trevor does quality work.

    Nice price too !

    I think your and Sendero Man have it right!!! The one rifle I've seen that they built had one of these scopes on it. I know it's hard to say from just this observation but I was not impressed. Not only that, they mounted in crooked as heck!!!
