   I put a 3-9x40 Sl on a .25-06 and sighted it in but found that head position was to critical for me to hunt with. The actual eye relief is ALOT less than the specs Sightron has out for this scope. The optics were very clear through out the power range and the adjustments got me sighted in quick so it now sits on my .22 squirrel rifle where I'm quite happy with it. Don't know if it would hold up to hvy recoil or not but watch your face!


til later

I'd go with the SII if it's possible.  Much better rep for that model.
