It's taken 1,000+ recoil cycles from rum's and she's holding 1/2 moa groups with the current rifle. Neither rifle had a brake either. I wouldn't put the current series on much of a rifle though.

The only two scopes I've had go to hell were a vxII leopold 2-7 and an older elite 3000 3-9 that had been on at least 5 rifles and got torn up by my lightweight 375 h@h. I've currently got an older Nicon Monarch straight 6x ot it; been trying to kill that scope for a while-- won't die. The Leopold was tightened up by them and worked well until I sold it; the elite was replaced with a new scope for free.
I agree with all of the above. The new production Nikon's across the board don't impress me much and the buckmasters I wouldn't trust on a .243.

I've been through more scopes in the last 40 years than most stores even stock today and the one thing that I've found to be truest today is for anyone looking at glass, to figure out how much they can afford to spend and then plan on adding at least 1/3 more to get the best they possibly can.

It doesn't matter what you spend on the rifle or how perfect it is if you put a cheap scope on it that falls apart just when you need it most.

Yep. The first thing I do after cleaning one well is fire 3 foulers and I'll then not clean it again until after the season unless for some strange reason I do a lot of shooting.

As for his question about the ES of 35fps I find anything under 50fps to be acceptable.
