Bushnell 6500 Tactical

I thinking about purchasing a 6500 for a 16lb 338 Lapua mag I was wondering how well it would hold up to a break.
If anyone has any experience with them and a break I'd like to hear about it.

    Bushnell’s are not the best know for holding up under recoil. I have used them on 308 and I like the scope for the most part and the prices are good. I did not like the limited elevation and how thick the reticles are.

    I would recommend a Leupold, Nikon, or Zeiss.
