I am a new member and was drawn to this site mainly to see if other folks are having trouble with scopes holding up on hard kicking rifles. I shoot a Remington African Plains Rifle (APR) in 338 RUM. I am on my second scope now and not having much luck. Has anyone seen the article written by Wayne van zwoll in Rifleshooter Magazine? He claims he has had only one scope failure in 40 years of hunting & shooting! What a hoot. Must be shooting 22-250's & 243's all his life. The guys I hunt elk with have had 8 confirmed scope failures in the last 10 years and these are not Walmart specials. Thats why I am here... to get real answers from real people.
