If that scope sat any higher it would need a flashing red light to warn aircraft.
throw in the muzzle brake just to top it off, that scope was a snackYou wept, I had that bile taste in the back of my mouth. You can always ask, "what were they thinking", but they weren't. I did not notice that it was a .338 until it was pointed out. If all of that is brass shot out of that rifle, it is probably already gone (the scope that is).
My 300 SAUM is not kind to scopes (8.5 lbs all up), so I cannot think that this abortion is.
