For a .338LM, I would not consider the Sightron or other lesser brand, they won't handle the recoil. IOR puts the scope that you want in their 50 caliber section of their website, so I doubt you will have any issues with it on a .338 Lapua.
Not realy sure why you doubt Sightron on a Lapua. I put over 100rnds under my 6-24x50lrmd/cm this weekend with a 300rum running 210vlds and 225hpbt hornadys and a 300wsm running 208amaxs. From ranges of 100-600yards. Absolutely flawless tracking and glass that went toe to toe with a friends brand new NXS 5.5-22 and was better. I like the NXS and have used but never owned multiple models. But I do not feel they live up to the price tag. I would definately pick up a used one at a discount but wouldnt pay full retail. If I would have seen this thread sooner, I would have highly recomended the new Sightron 6-24x50lrmoa.
