I just picked up a 300 ultra mag, and am now looking for a scope to top it.  I have got a burris that i am going to throw on it til i  to get a new one, but was wondering if you guys think the burris will hold up to the recoil?
Also, i have looked at the millets trs series and was wondering what your opinions were.  My budget will be around $400, and i would like to get one with turrets. Also, will the millet hold up to the recoil of the 300 rum?
 Is there anything else in that range that would hold the recoil and perform good?
Thanks for your help..

Personally, I would save a little more and get a 3-9 Super Sniper.  It will definitely "hold up".

thanks for the replys.
I'm not sure on which model of burris it is, it was on my 7mm when i  bought it.  It's silver and says burris on the side, but thats about it, so not sure on the model.
I wanna go with an adjustable zoom, i don't want a fixed power because  i will be hunting with it.

A buddy of mine has a pentax whitetails unlimited, which is essentially a burris FFII on his 300 Rum and it has held up for 3-4 years now. Burris makes a good product, I wouldn't be afraid to mount one.

I have had several different models of Burris (currently the Black Diamond) on y 300 WM and never had a problem with any of them.  They will hold up fine.  If you are going to get a new scope, saving for the variable Super Sniper is a great choice.  Have one sitting on my 270 and it is probably my favorite scope.  And great glass.
