In September I wrote about hammer Scopes. I would like to retract my comments. Hammer scopes suck. I have since bought a new huskemaw scoped and shot a nice buck at 515 yards. Dont waste your money on hammer Scopes.

Lol!!! Your funny. What's the longest shot you have ever made on big game? I have seen more long shots with huskemaw Scopesthen nightforce scopes. At 1000 yards i have great groupings with my new huskemaw

This is not a pissing match.  Point is that huskemaw charges for their name and to pay for TV time, not for good scopes.  The few I've seen have all been on the injured reserve list so to speak.  There are much better options for the same money that will out perform in both glass and mechanics.   Shooting game animals at extreme distances is not just going and buying a scope they use on TV and doing it, thats unethical.  If you don't have thousands of rounds downrange at those distances and are not 100% confident that you can 100% hit your mark cleanly your don't have business shooting game at long ranges.  But hey they do it on TV so people will watch and think it will make them able to do the same.

We still have another week till deer season. I never realized Utah had such early hunting seasons Congratulations. That was a lot longer shot than I would have ever attempted for a deer.

I agree shooting game at long distances is more then just buying a scope. However, I have used Nikons and swarovski and I thought their performance was was extremely poor. I think Nightforce is a great scope. I have seen my uncle shoot 2 nice elk 1 at 634 yards and 1 at 879 yards. One elk scoring over 385 in the boner crocket. But I don't want to pay over $2000 for a scope. When I have a dozen close friends and family who all shoot Huskemaw scopes. That the performance is amazing. So for me going with Huskemaw has nothing to do with TV. I have gone with Huskemaw because it has only outperformed every other scope I have seen shot.I can recall one TV show I have seen in the last 2 years that they were shooting long-range with a Huskemaw

I agree it went to complete useless

Because you have never used a huskemaw scope in the field you only talk about what you have heard. Unless you have actually used it keep thinking what you want.

Just spoke with a Husemaw rep on this matter. I just wanted to get good solid info directly from the manufacture.
 
This was his response to my question, "Where are you scopes manufactured?"
 
Rep: "They are manufactured in the same place as Nightforce, Swarovski, Zeiss and other high end Japanese scopes."
 
Me: "So you have high-end Japanese glass just like Swarovski and Zeiss?"
 
Rep: "Yes."
 
Whacko
I needed a good laugh today.

HA HA HA
Guys I can really careless what anybody thinks or says. I am going off of complete performance. It has performed everything I want and more. It all comes down to the bottom line. If I can shoot a big game animal with a clean shot (which I can) and trust the scope which I do. Everyone has an opinion and everyone is different. The entire reason I came on was to let people know that Hammer scopes SUCK!!!.

My Huskemaw scope and Huskemaw scope of my firends have put some nice deer and elk on the wall. If the glass is from Japan well thank you Japan for putting nice big animals on my wall with shots over 500 yards. With all the great memories I have with friends and family.

Agreed.
 
I also don't see how you can say, I have used Nikons and Swarovski's and they are of poor quality, while your Huskemaw is "Oh so wonderful!"
 
First off, Nikon and Swarovski are in completely seperate ball parks.
 
Secondly, Swarovski has been at the forefront of optics manufacturing for many many years and has become world-reknowned for their clarity and low-light performance. Huskemaw, however, has only been around for 6 years and not carried by very many at all.
 
If you like spending serious coin on your buddies favorite scopes, by all means go for it. But dont think you wont be called out on here for spewing bs. You loved your Hammer and had full confidence in it (which readers see) then one day, they suck... Now its Huskemaw and they will beat out a Swarovski anyday?....Loco

Ya last year I did like my hammer scope. It shot a nice deer and elk with in 250 yards. However, when I got out to farther ranges to shoot much bigger deer and elk it lose a lot of quality. Where I was hunting this year in Utah and Nevada for Mule deer I wasn't getting within 400 yards of an animal.

Sorry for the confusion when I said Nikon and Swarovski were poor quality. Maybe its my eyes however, I could see better with the Huskemaw scope. It was clearer to me and my eyes.

Guys im not here to call BS. I am only sharing my opinion.

The load I created for my 300 win mag is 185 VLD berger bullet, 215 federal primer, 79 grains of h-1000, remmington brass, .2 off of my lands

Thats where the cheap, high mag scopes fail is at high power.
Aside from everything else, what did you not like about the Swarovski?
Its possible that it may not be adjusted right.
 
Do you wear corrective lenses when you shoot or regularly?

With the scope itself I have no problems with it. Did like the green, red, yellow knobs that come with the turret.

My eyes are 20/20 no glasses contacts. It just didn't seem as clear that's all.
