A Game-Changing Long-Range Hunting Rifle and Huskemaw Optics Combo
The recently released 7mm PRC AlTopo long-range hunting rifle from Best Of The West Arms is an exciting new innovation in the long-range hunting space. Topped with the Huskemaw 5-20x50 Tactical Hunter, it’s going to be hard to overlook this latest offering from the pioneers of long-range hunting.
The Innovation in Long-Range Hunting
The AlTopo long-range hunting rifle is known for its precision and accuracy, making it a popular choice among serious long-range hunters. It is designed to deliver exceptional performance at extended distances, sometimes exceeding 1,000 yards.
The rifle is carefully crafted with high-quality materials and components to ensure durability and reliability in demanding hunting conditions. Since their release in 2022, AlTopo rifles have been praised for their excellent craftsmanship, advanced features, and exceptional accuracy, which greatly enhance a hunter's long-range shooting capabilities.
Stylish and Customizable: AlTopo's Unique Features and Finishes
For the AlTopo models, BOTW Arms chose a McMillan stock with a cool topo map-style finish that lends itself to the AlTopo name. Last year's 6.5 and 300 PRC models sport the hunter green finish while the new desert tan color scheme is currently available in the 7mm PRC only.
The AlTopo line comes equipped with a Trigger Tech trigger and steel barrel. Last year’s model comes standard with a 24” steel barrel while the new 7 PRC system sports a 22” steel barrel. All barrels come with helical fluting, a threaded side-port muzzle brake and are suppressor-ready!
Optic options vary for the AlTopo as well as the 6.5 PRC and 300 PRC models come standard with a Huskemaw 5-20x50 Blue Diamond (although Best Of The West Arizona can upgrade it to the 5-20x50 or 5-30x56 Tactical Hunter for a small fee). The new 7 PRC AlTopo rifle comes standard with the Huskemaw 5-20x50 Tactical Hunter, offering several more key features for the serious hunter/shooter.
Having now tested both models and all calibers of the AlTopo line we can proudly attest to the system's accuracy and value. With retail price points of $6995 and $7995 respectively, the 6.5 and 300 PRC models along with the new 7 PRC option are causing many hunters to take pause and rethink their approach into long-range hunting.
With prices of premium custom hunting rifles coming in at well over the $10K mark these days, the relatively low price point of the AlTopo coupled with exceptional performance has many hunters excited about the possibility of owning a custom sub-MOA rifle, at a price that won’t break the bank.
Finally, its worth noting that these rifle systems come as a complete package which includes a hard case, 40 rounds of ammo, a windmeter, dual stack turrets calibrated for 3K/7K ft. elevation and are guaranteed and proven to 1,000 yards! Weighing in at under 9.5 lbs. scoped, what’s not to like about these systems!
Optics: Huskemaw's Superiority in Long-Range Shooting
Huskemaw optics are specifically designed for long-range shooting and hunting applications and they’re the go-to hunting optic for Best Of The West rifles. Huskemaw is renowned for their precision and clarity, enabling shooters to make accurate shots at extended distances. Huskemaw scopes incorporate advanced features such as adjustable parallax, ballistic compensation, and high-quality optics to provide clear and detailed views of the target.
Scopes on these systems come with custom elevation turrets calibrated to the specific ballistic profile of the selected ammo, allowing shooters to quickly and accurately adjust for bullet drop at different distances. Huskemaw optics are highly regarded for their reliability, ease of use, and ability to enhance the shooter's accuracy and confidence in long-range engagements. Huskemaw Optics also comes with a lifetime warranty, but unlike other brands, it’s a lifetime warranty you’ll never use!
Together, the AlTopo long-range hunting rifle and Huskemaw optics form a formidable combination for those pursuing long-range hunting. When used together, they offer the shooter exceptional precision, extended effective range, and a reliable platform to take accurate shots at distant targets.
