Re: She is here and she is one BAD *****!!!

How do you like that scope? Curious how it will hold up to the 375. I have heard great reports about that scope on lesser rifles but have heard of a couple issues when mounted on larger magnums and 50 cal class rifles. To be fair, its not advertised as a 50 cal proof scope but Have heard some reports that it has failed on conventional large magnums as well.

Curious to hear how it stands up for you.

    Kirby,

    I know many people on optics talk and sniper's hide that use them with no problems. As for personal experience I have very little with this guy.

    I have read most of the reports on the Hide as well. Will be interesting to hear your review of the scope on a REAL rifle!!! LOL

    Keep us posted. For the money and features it would be a great scope if it does what its said to do on the larger magnum rifles. Was thinking hard about putting one on my 338 Raptor but just a bit nervous to pull the trigger without getting a review from someone that knows what a big gun really is.

    Anything will stand up to a 223, 308 or 300 Win Mag, hell even most 338 Lapuas, but on a serious rifle, many of these scopes can let loose.

    Please keep us posted as to what you see using the scope on your big 375.

    Thanks

    She certainly is a big case

    I built a 375 VM2 imp, the case held 185-186 grains of H2O to the top of the neck.

    Nice rifle you have got there

    Looking forward to seeing how she performs for you.

    Seems I remember it was rated for the 50 cals but I just took a look on their site and most of their Super Sniper Scopes are rated for the 50 but not the 5x20. They must have removed that designation for some reason.

    Very cool rifle as are Kirby's. Keep us in the loop when you start shooting it.
