Re: 338 RUM Scope

I've had two .340Wby's which are simular to the .338rum. I've had a Swarovski A Line 4-12x50, Bushnell 4200 4-16x50, and an IOR 3-18x42 Tactical scope. They've all held up fine. They only problem I had was with the Leupold standard scope mounts on the bushnell. That was my fault because I used standard not dual dovetails.

For my lightweight (5.5 lb) .340wby now I'll be placing either a Zeiss or a Leupold in order to save weight.

    I have a 338RUM, scoped with a Zeiss Conquest 3,5-10x44, and that scope holds up great. I have used it on that rifle for some years now, and have fired several houndreds of shots, and no problem.

    How would Nikon's Monarch or Weaver's Grand Slam hold up to 338RUM with a brake. Thanks!

    I used a Zeiss 4x14x 44 Conquest on a AR50, 50 bmg for about 100 rounds or so and it did fine. It's now on a very accurate ar15 and shows no sign of damage.

    I replaced it with a Leupold varx III 6.5x20. That one didn't last too long before I had to send it off for repairs. Got it back, put it back on my 50 and it seems to be ok. Not sure though. I get some weird flyer's sometimes.
