I've got a 10x on my 416wby and can honestly say it's not what I'd want past about 600-700 yards. Just me maybe...

I am using a S & B 4-16x50 on a PGW .338 Lapua with 26 inch fluted barrel like yours. It works really well. I think it looks better than a mark 4 even upgraded to 24 power.

Re: best scope for a 338 lapua

US Optics and IOR have had some serious issues.
The only one that I personally would put before Leupold would be N.F. NXS.
I have not used a S&B before but I know Littletoes personally, and he loves the heck out of them.

Re: best scope for a 338 lapua

Thanks for all the help guys.
I went ahead and settled for the S&B 4-16x50 PM II. The 34mm tube really makes a difference and the glass equals my Swarovski 4-12x50 plex.

Cheers
