    Hi guys, wanting input please,

    Do we think a VXIII 8.5-25 would handle the recoil of a 338 Lapua?
    Rig would be something like Barnard action, Trueflite barrel,
    McMillian A3-5,Barnard base, Ken Farrell rings.

    Would the VXIII be the weakest link!

    Thanks in advance

    I think it would be fine.

    If it'll work on a 338 RUM it'll work on a 338 Lapua, and it does.

    I have a VX-III on my 338 Lapua and have had no issues with the scope what ever.
