Absolutely no issues and its on a .338LM with 400-500 down the tube.  Tracks perfect try to get the newer "tactical" turrets not the "target" mine are a little mushy but are returning perfectly...





500 YRD TARGET UN CORRECTED FOR WIND VALUES 3 SHOTS IN 3 TARGETS LOOK HARD FOR MY LAST SHOT AS IT IS MY SIGNATURE SO TO SPEAK.







I almost have a good card of data on personal equipment with this... Thinking this combo while cheap will do as good as some of the others I've downgraded from...

very nice shooting.  I had to look hard for that 3rd shot in the first target but finally saw "part" of the hitWink
 
I am jealous of your set up and ranges!

This might seem like a stupid question but how well does that 50x power work on as rifle scope? Do you have it on a sled or just bags/bipod or what. Just from using spotting scope seems like the slightest movement on your part would be violatant   movement in the crosshairs.

Pardon my comments.

 
I can answer this from two view points to which neither will be correct or scientifically provable.
 
I find that first time shooters vary significantly than shooters trained by any military trained instructors.
 
Some prefer high magnification so they can see the target better or as if it is closer and less around it so they can see the rings or the red vs. invision the center of the target and putting a hole through it.
 
I think that the scope while maybe the best scope i have ever looked through at high magnification is not useful to me past 18-20 and is not worthwhile taking past 27or28 due to the little image degradation that occurs.
 
I have shot at paper at 40x 44x and 50x and have been able to maintain my breathing however i have practiced this thousands of times from the five positions.
 
You actually learn how to shoot in a pattern of the up and down diaphragm as it is a necessity to do when putting lead out in the other direction as fast as you can. 
 
Thus rapid shooting in between breathes will teach you at the higher magnifications all of your inherent tendencies and will amplify them.
 
If you can learn to have sight control as well as your control over your BRAS then you can do this just fine.  Proper cheek weld and lop as well as the mastery of cycling your rig doing lots of trigger exercises and keeping your muscles from fatigue is a definite must.
 
You find that the more you practice at higher magnification the better you can focus on working your issues out. Familiarizing yourself with your "eyes" or optics/glass is not the most important thing fundamentals and proper technique is.
 
Now from the practical side you must know that higher power is useless unless you can control every variable of your shot.
 
Most do not go over 16x-22x.

It's time to upgrade my scope on the .338 from 6-24 to a higher magnification and I decided to buy a Sightron SIII as it was in my price range.  I can DEFINITELY use the 50 magnification but the two piece tube scares me silly. Does anyone had problems with this scope? I don't even know how the two parts are glued together . Should I be careful handling this scope, or is it sturdy enough  after 1000 shots or if I accidentally drop it ? If I find that the two piece are fragile I will get the 8-32 which are one piece tube.

That is music to my ears.  Sometimes less is indeed more.
