American Rifleman had an article in their magazine this month about this scope . I have read a few reviews on it and have all seemed to be positive . I'm thinking of putting one of these scopes on my BAR .300 Winchester Magnum . I worry it may not hold up to the recoil . Anyone out there had any experience with this scope ?

Would not be my first choice.  If you only want to spend $150. or less.  Look at the Simmon Aetec 3.8-12x44 at $144.95 or Bushnell Legend 3-9x50 at $136.95.  I think either one of those two scopes would be a safer choice.  If you have to have an illuminated scope you can get the Simmons Aetec 3.8-12x44 illuminated for $179.95

another great choice would be the simmons whitetail expedition, they are the best bang for your buck out there. and i beleave the 4-12 adjustable objective can be had on samplelist for 150.

 

and chris, i thinks its really great that you are giving people honest opinions, and not just trying to sell your product. ive never seen or heard of anybody else that sells stuff that gives an honest opinion of stuff like you do.

That scope is a decent scope but if I were you I would look in a different direction.  Reason being is that BSA is near the bottom of the line when talking optics. With that caliber the BSA would be questionable as to weather or not it would hold up to the recoil. Before you invest your money into a scope that you may want to last a good while and perform without being questioned. You should consider a few other scopes. One that I would consider if I were you would be the Simmons Aetec 3.12X44. It offers every thing the BSA offers and is far better quality, and is just a few dollars more. If you really wanted to save your pennies you step into a whole new ball park as far as choices and quality optics. Here are a few that would be worth your investment.

 

Bushnell Elite 3200 3-9X50......$234.95

Bushnell Elite 4200 2.5-10X50......$399.95

Burris Fullfield II 3-9X40......$299.95

A funny thing happened on this post.  Brady and I were both answering it at the same time (unannounced to each other) and our answers are almost identical (except his sounds more professional and looks better with all the fancy links).

Redfield was effectively put out of business after they could not pay to fix their pollution problems and fines from the E.P.A.  Blount bought the rights to the name.....mainly to sell products to mass merchants like Wal-Mart using the Redfield name.  Blount sold them to ATK which has sold them to Meade.  Blount and ATK "Redfields" were just relabeled mass produced scopes from the orient.  Meade has different plans for the treasured and respected Redfield name that we have yet to see.
