    I just purchased a Nikon Black 1000 6-24x50 MOA with 30 mm tube for long range shooting/hunting. I was warned by some folks at a Major chain sporting goods store that this scope would not hold up to large calibers. That the scope would not hold its adjustments.
    I have been using an older Monarch Nikon for years and have subjected it to a lot more then just recoil. I mount it on the front of a 4 wheeler and drive through the Blue Mountains of Oregon. I have never seen it get knocked of adjustment.
    I called Nikon and they told me that they have this scope mounted on BMG 50s and it holds. So I have it mounted on a .338LM and will let you know. I was wondering if anyone else had any experience with this scope on big magnums. By the way it is not a $2k scope it is under a grand. The optics are as good as any out there to my eye. I used Nikon glass for decades in my professional cameras.

    I've never had an issue with my monarch. It's been on a .300wm

    I was really eyeing this scope for my 7mm Rem Mag, but it does not have a one piece tube does it?

    I compared the optics on Leica, Vortex, Nightforce etc.. Nikon glass IMO is better at least to my eye esp. in low light

    My Nikon prostaff held up to my .300WM for years. I even dropped hard enough to take out a chunk of metal out of the tube once and kept it's zero. My opinion is that Nikon makes a good product for the money.

    The other thing that all the reviews say is it is not available in 24 power in MOA. Mine is and I was wrong I bought it from Optics Planet. This is a good long range scope. upload_2017-12-18_6-34-33.png

    I am in Texas in an RV and my scope is at home. I looked at it very carefully and unless I am mistaken the main tube is one piece. Go take a look at your local sporting goods store.
