I only have one Leupold rifle scope that has been converted to a long eye releif scope (36x Leupy). Wally Seibert does the LER conversions but only for the 24x & 36x Leupys. The 36x ends up being a 20x LER scope but the eye relief is extremely critical and field of view is small, but it is great for group shooting and LR varminting.
All but one of my Specialty handguns that use rifle scopes (un-modified) have brakes on them and I do not see a full FOV.
Cartridges I use w/rifle scopes in SP's are: 22-250AI, 6-284, 6.5-284, 284 Win, 7mm Rem Mag Imp, and the 7mm Dakota.
You have to experiment and find out with your grip style(s) how far back your SP comes back and then make sure you have give yourself some extra grace. A good way to do that is to have someone watch you and measure how far back it goes.
