I've never had a problem with any Nikon scope and recoil.  Had a 4x12x40 Monarch on a 8mm Mag briefly.  It handled the recoil fine but was a little short on eye relief.  Ouch

I have one of the new Monarch's on a 1895 Marlin.  At 8x, with heavy 350 grain loads, shooting off a bench rest, the lens cover latch keeps wacking me on the nose.  Needs more eye relief!

The 8mm Rem Mag is certainly a good test. Also a fine cartridge.
