Video of Riflescope Flexing???

Is this suppose to be like this or is there something wrong with this setup?

YouTube - high-speed video of scope and barrel flexing on a 50BMG

Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.

Our Lord Jesus said that as it was in the days of Noah and
also as it was in the days of Lot so it shall be in the days...
It's happening again!!! God sent to us His prophet, and His Word
to this generation and we once more are rejecting it as was prophesied!!!

---> As promised, God Sent His Prophet to us!

I don't know, it looks like the base is not secured at the back end. I wouldn't think a scope would flex to the point of being visable.

Doesn't seem right.

I agree soren, the rear does not look fully secure.

Not only that but....

The rifle get's floppy too. See animation here:
FEA Barrel Pressure Analysis on a 6PPC Rifle Barrel

Keep in mind that this movement is amplified 1000x. Because of this exaggeration, his scope is shown hitting the barrel... but looking at the video of the riflescope flexing, this guy's animation seems to be very accurate.

Oh it's right. That video shows the massive amount of stress that is impacted on the scope and mounting system when a 50 BMG is fired
range it,check the wind, dial in correction, aim and only one shot
