Re: 338 RUM Scope

Thanks for the replies. I haven't shot the rifle yet, but i'm not planning on useing a brake. I've actually never fired a gun with a muzzle brake.

Before I buy the Zeiss is there anything else around that magnification range I should look at?

Re: 338 RUM Scope

Thanks guys for explaining, I like this site alot for how well things are done.

Instead of everyone picking on me and making fun, things were explained well and politely.

Thanks Bill for the good answer. Guess I learned something new and will know better when something is asked again...

Hats off to ya ! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]

Re: 338 RUM Scope

I won't and most people on here won't flame for making a mistake or asking a question that may seem simple. Most of the things I learned about this game were right here on LRH. Including the answer to that question [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img].

Re: 338 RUM Scope

[ QUOTE ]
A braked rifle is harder on scopes than a non braked rifle. W/ a non braked rifle, the force of the recoil is in one direction and in one motion. W/a braked rifle, the recoil of the bullet down the bore starts the gun back and then the gases exiting through the brake then pull the gun forward. The result is ALOT more stress on the scope as it starts reward and is then jerked back forward. This is why good rings are a necessity on a braked rifle as well.

[/ QUOTE ]

Is that the same for sound moderators?
