I have a 6.5 x25 x 40 on my 243 win and I have no complaints on this scope. It started on my 300 wsm
and withstood the recoil of shooting 210 SMK's. I moved it to my 243 when my 300 went to the smith. The Leupold is a good scope, but it doesn't have the glass quality of the more expensive ( Nightforce, Mark 4, Zeis, Swaro, etc. ) scopes.
