    Best I can tell is the consensus is that they are over-priced.

    Huskemaw scope?

    I just bought a my cousin Sightron SII Big Sky 4-16x42 AO with Hunter Holdover Reticle for US$470 so there are some deals out there. He plans to mount it on a 7mm Rem Mag and knows a lot more than I do so all I can say is that it looks like a nice scope

    Was more interested if anyone in NZ had dealings with them.

    Yeah their homepage takes a while to load, too much on the front page.

    Fair enough. I personally have not, nor have I seen anyone with one.

    Any further reports on these Huskemaw scopes? reviews are quite mixed but look like just what I am after, not too bulky hunting scope.

    Yes I read that article, I quite like the reticule, was looking around for magazine to re-read it . See Greg is also tied in with that online long-range hunting magazine that push them though. Might try one as does tick all the boxes for me.

    Ahhh was hoping you had taken the plunge!
    Out at sea at the moment, see how the fishing goes whether Santa brings me one. Too be fair to Huskemaw it does look like a scope with features designed suitable for a NZ on foot hunter. Similar scope for comparison would be a VX6 2-12 CDS or something I guess?
