Re: Anyone NOT like burris fullfield II scopes?
Most rifle scopes are subjected to some kind of recoil test (i.e. XXXX rounds of .375 H&H or something) but I don't think a drop test is a common practice (at least not for most) and certainly even the toughest scopes in the market is not immune to any dropped damage (depending of the nature and magnitude of the impact) ... I guess that's why most of us have back up rifles.
My son slipped and fell on one of our hunting trips a few years ago and dropped his rifle topped with a VX-I 3-9x40. Although he was able to cradle most of the impact it left a dent on the objective lens housing ... luckily it was towards the end of the day. In short, it held zero when I re-tested/re-sighted it. The dent is still there but is covered with a lens cap.
I'm a big fan of Leupold but I just got my (first ever Burris purchase) FFII in 4.5-14x42 with BP reticle yesterday and can't wait to try it this weekend.
