Ok, so I just sent a new build to Eabco to have the JP Howitzer brake installed. This is the one I'm talking about. JP Howitzer Brake Blue Installed I am fully aware of the problems associated with scopes on Braked rifles and why they happen. With that said, do any of you guys have direct experience with scopes that have been long lived on braked rifles. I have three scopes that are up for grabs for this build, a Leupold 2-7 VXII, a 4-14 VXIII, and a Mueller Eraticator 8-25. I would really like to put the Mueller on this one but I'm not sure how she would hold up to the brake. The gun is a .308 so it doesn't have much kick to begin with but the reverse recoil associated with the brake is what I'm worried about. I have seen braked rifles on quite a few of the threads here and I was wondering what kind of scopes you guys have had good luck with.
