Huskemaw, dial and shoot up to 1000 yards without adding.   :chuckle:
nevermind those pesky atmospheric  conditions that can change your poi by feet....


 :peep:
comes w two turrets for elevation, and they’ll make more if you want. I have a 3,000 and a 6,000 foot turret.   :tung:
Wait mr elk! Let me change my turrets!  :tung:
karl can’t hike 3,000 ft in elevation in a month much less one day!  :chuckle: plus, he’s an elk racist!!

Example: 2015 in MT we got hit with a nasty cold snap. Temp dropped out the bottom. I shot my buck at 502 yards. After the fact I got curious and ran the yardage numbers on that shot. With a yardage turret set for 35° and 5k feet i would have had to dial to 630 yards to make that shot. So the guy with the huskemaw would have ranged 502, dialed up to 500 yards and missed the daylights out of that buck. Not for me.

Its a hypothetical.  Same exact scopes. Completely identical except one has a 10 moa turret and one has a 20 moa turret. Thats it. Which one are you choosing?


I've already stated that the 10 moa turret isn't necessarily a negative but it is a less desirable feature vs other scopes in its category. Let's compare to the v4 since bullblaster mentioned it. 20 moa turret, capped windage, solid mechanical zero stop, more reticle options (i prefer the t30 or the reticle over the moar) , sub 25oz, solid rep for repeatability. I'd use a shv in a heart beat but with scopes like the v4, I wouldn't even entertain one. Different strokes for different folks :tup:

For your hypothetical......I honest to god could care less for my purposes.  I really like the SVH and larger numbers / graduations with the 10 moa turret.  I also like my NSX, though it is not because it has a 20 moa turret.  I very rarely dial past 10 moa so it just doesn't matter.  That's my whole point.....and why I honestly cannot answer your hypothetical.  Another way to look at your hypothetical would be.....twist one full rotation or half rotation....which is definitely better?? 

You only get one M&M color to eat for the rest of your life...Which one is it?  You have a gun to your head and have to choose.....Ummmmmm???  They all taste the same.

Half turn is better, and m&ms is easy too. Its green. Theyre the best ones.

From my perspective a 10 moa rotation will be half as far off as a 20 when I forget to dial it back to zero.   :chuckle:

thats not an answer sir  :chuckle: the question is 10 or 20 not whether you are indifferent or not.  Lets put it another way. You're the guy in charge of designing the shv line. You've got two options for turrets, a 10 and a 20. Obviously not gonna manufacture two different styles and the manufacturing cost is identical. Which one are you gonna put on the shv?

haha! Ive got an old leupold mrk4 with a 15moa turret thats easily dialed 10k shots on a dozen rifles or more. Just don't tell the internet because the mrk4's aren't supposed to hold zero or track  :chuckle:

Bringing this one back to the top so we may be able to get some closure. Or not.  :chuckle:
