OK I'm not here to open a can of worms like I did earlier today. I shoot with a huskemaw scope out to 500 yards plus and love everything about it and accurate. Why would I want to use something else like a swarovki? I just want to hear peoples opinions.

I don't think anyone is trying to tell you what to shoot. What they are trying to say is that the scope is sort of a gimmick, like a countersniper. When someone calls a facility and asks about manufacture country of origin, and they say the same Japanese factory as nightforce, swarovski, and zeiss, they will not be taken seriously here. 2 of those manufacturers have not even one Japanese made part in any of their scopes.

Some people like NcStars to each his own.

Some people like Barska to each his own.

Some people like to eat other people, to each his own.

I know of a Dr. that was very well educated and he thought the most expensive was the best, to each his own.

The world is full of educated derlicts to each his own.

Not aware of earlier posts or anything else.
The Huskemaw used to come from (several years ago anyway) the same OEM that NF does.  NF assembles their scopes here I believe whereas I think the Huskemaw is assembled over there.
A company basically gives the OEM their specs and then the build said scope at those specs.  That means two different brands of scopes can come form the very same OEM and be different in parts and glass quality.
Nothing wrong with the Huskemaw I have.
The ballistic turret is another way to "skin the cat" in terms of making correction for drop while the reticle is intended to be used for wind correction.  I don't have one of the Blue Diamonds.  Mine is the older version.  Mine has held up well (repeatable turrets) and the glass is good for any hunting I would want to do with it.
Is it my favorite way of shooting distance?  No.  Does it work? Yes.
As far as any other drama going on-I'm not interested in thatLoco

I'll bite.

 
The reason to go for Swarovski over the Huskemaw is simple:
 
1.  The Swarovski (even the Z3) is the better scope optically.  I have used them both.  I was surprised to find the clicks in 1/3 MOA.  That was interesting, but I get a little coarser adjustment for the intended use of the scope (game sized targets at extended ranges).
 
2.  You get more scope (except weight-wise) for the money with the Swarovski.
 
I can, and have, accurately get hits out to 500 yards (and further) with the BRH reticle, and do it quicker than the BDC dial of the Huskemaw without dialing back to zero.
 
That is my take.

Well said Ernie and Matt.  I have a very close friend who worked on the initial Huskemaw design.  It is not junk, but it does not live up to its advertising, either.  Many optics manufacturers/producers take broad license with their claims.  If you have one and it works well for you under your shooting conditions, I have no complaints.  Doesn't mean I would purchase one, but can't fault someone who does.   
 
338 was talking about me... I have an NcStar that works just fine (except for that "Mad-eye Moody" reticle) for some things.  Would I go hunting with it?  NEVER.  If it were the only scope I had, operational, I would use iron sights.  But for plinking and shooting at paper at longer ranges, it has been OK, as long as I don't try to adjust it while shooting... it's a 10-50 and at 50x in good light, surprisingly clear.  POI moves a bit with mag changes... but it has held up to some pretty heavy bangers, including 50BMG and .458Lott.  Still tickin'...
