Scopes that will hold up on ultra mags

Can anybody tell me a really good scope for 300 remington ultra mag that will hold up to the recoil.

So far the burris fulfield 2 4.5-14X42 with the ballistic plex has worked great for me. the ballistic plex lines match up almost perfectly with the trajectory of the .300rum with a 180 gr bullet. The price and durability are right too and it has the forever warranty (I've never needed it)
good luck Skip

A recommendation would depend on all that you want to do with it.

Regarding recoil, It really isn't that much on a 300 RUM.

Any of the medium to high price range scopes from one of the better manufacturers would hold up to the recoil.

Magnificaion, turrets, retical and objective lens size would depend on what you want to do with it.

Good luck with your search

big honkin jeep,

how many shots do you have with the burris scope? I bought one last year and parked it on my .340wby to test and it lasted exactly 16 shots. Wouldn't hold zero after that.

Mine died after less than one 20rd mag out of my FN FAL. And they don't even kick, they're gas operated! On the plus side, their warranty service was real quick. Maybe the humidity in the Phillipines ruins the glue?

Sounds like a thumbs down on Burris. It would probably help if you provided a cost range you're willing to incur and identified your intended uses of the rifle. Really good rifle scopes can run anywhere from ~$1200 up to more than $2500. Pretty good ones might cost from $500 up to ~$1200. There are plenty that can still get the job done for less than $500. Too many possibilities to even begin offering advice without narrowing down the playing field.
