Rifle rigidity

I wasnt quite sure where to put this but since this section is frequented a lot I put it here because if you havent seen this, check it out. It really illustrates the need for the stiffest possible barrel as well as other components. The scope as well. I wonder how many shots it would take to throw the scope off?

I realize its a .50BMG and probably not as stiff of a action as say a McMillan Tac-50 or AR-50. Ive never seen a vid showing a rifle flexing like that though. Itd be interesting to do a slow-mo with say a 8 lb. sporter barreled .378 Weatherby. LOL

Re: Rifle rigidity

The aft end of the rail comes way up off the receiver adding to the scope flex. Just a guess here but wouldn't another couple screws and bedding help?
