    I have a 378 weatherby Mag the scope on it which was a Bushnell Trophy 3-9x40 Gloss Illuminated Reticle died on me after less then 220 rounds according to how much ive shot it over the year ive had it cost me a mint to. Where can I get a nice one for less then 200 bucks that wont shit on me in less then 500 rounds from 60ft lbs of recoil?

    The Burris Fullfield, and Leupold VX1 may work. That is a lot of recoil. If you can spend the money, consider scopes designed for big bore African cartridges.

    Before you put a new scope on make sure the mount setup is heavy duty enough for the gun/recoil. The rings whipping in the breeze will certainly ruin a scope!!!

    When you have a Rolls Royce on the bottom, the least you should have on top for RECOIL is a Caddy!. Burris make a quality line in the Sinature Series, with Posi-Lock. No movement after zero set-up.
