Worried about it? No. I don't like the looks of a 50mm objective.

Look @ the Leupold Mark 4 PR 4.5-14x40mm. It has a 30mm tube and the target knobs. A nice scope for around $600-$700.

Re: Durable scope for 338-378

My recommendation would be on lines with Bills with the Leuy but in the Mk4 LR instead.

I just got in a Mk4 3.5-10 FFP MLR with 40mm objective for my lightwieght 7mm AM and so far I am very impressed with it.

My very first choice would be the NF 3.5-15 but that is my personal choice. Since you do not like the 50mm objective, go with one of the Leupold Mk4s with the 40mm objective.

When you start scoping the big boys, the list of scopes that will offer totally trouble free performance is pretty short. At the top of my short list is Leupold at #2 and Nightforce at #1.

There are certainly others that will work but these are by far the top two performers.

A buddy of mine has had a Burris Signature 6-24x44 on his since it was a 30-378 (shot out and rebarrled to 338-378) fired @ 2000 times with the new barrel, and is now at Shilen getting rebarreled again all without any scope problems. I know it's not a Night force, but it's 44mm and it's pretty darn clear, and it can without a doubt withstand recoil.

Re: Durable scope for 338-378

Hi i have a Nightforce 2.5-10 here and it is just awsome i am testing it on a rifle and at night on 2.5 power it magnifies the available light and is very clear. I would not trust any other scope on that type of Rifle as the Nightforce scopes are almost unbreakable.

Cheers Bill
