I plan to put a Nikon Monarc Gold on my new Ruger Hawkeye in 375 Ruger.  Main reason is that this is the 1,5-6x42 with the good  4" of eye relief ( well I´m comfortable with the glass as well Smile)

Will it stand up to the beating of the 375 Ruger recoil?
Alternative is a Vari X III 2,5-8x36, but I don´t like the variable eye relief on the Leupold.
Othervise I know the Leupold is rock solid

I don't think you will have a problem there.

You shouldn't have any problem at all. Great glass and solid construction.
if it's available w/ a number 4 reticle - you'll really enjoy that config.

Thanks for replay.
As this rifle will be used on bear and possibly DG in turn, I just like to make sure that there is no hidden hick ups.
The scope has been used on a 35 Whelen for a couple of years, and I really like it.
And has the #4 reticle Smile

When I was looking to scope my 458 Lott, I phoned Nikon and talked to them about the Monarch Gold.  The person I spoke with said he did not know of any testing with the Lott, but that they had done extensive testing with 375 H&H (which is right in line with your 375 Ruger).  There should be no problem.

Opinion,untempered by fact,is ignorance.

There are some who do not fear death... for they are more afraid of not really living
