Hi all,
I know that the Huskemaw brand gets a lot of flack and little respect, but recently I purchased the Huskemaw Blue Diamond 5x20x50mm scope. After developing a satisfactory load, they burned a custom turret which I use for this specific load. I've since shot consistently out to 835 yards, but never past that range.
This past week I was able to stretch things out and increase the distance to 1000 yards.

I recorded a 3 consecutive shot group, and uploaded it on YouTube. The group measured less than 6-1/2". Needless to say I'm quite satisfied with this scope.

I'll gladly answer any questions I can about the scope, personal opinion as well as technical.
Enjoy the video!

True, I hear what you are saying though I'm not sure why. Does their TV show promote disbelief about their system? Is it their materials and craftsmanship? Or perhaps many believe that .36 moa clicks are too coarse of an adjustment at long range?

Yes, they certainly don't have the following like Nightforce, but as someone who owns Leupold, Zeiss and Leica glass, I think this scope is quite good.

Just my personal opinion though...

I have 2 Huskemaw Blue daimonds (1) 5.5x22 (2) 3x12..I took the 5.5x22 down to Price utah with my 7STW and was real impressed with the tracking & glass @ 1000 yds..havent messed with the 3x12 ( putting it on a 6.5X47L) but I,m sure it will track well too..But saying that I,m looking at the G7 now..Danny
