A budy of mine has his heart set on a 50mm inexpensive high power scope for his .300Rum.
Will this hold up?

  Have no idea if it would hold up to the recoil but what concerns me is that the eye relief is kinda short (3.2-3.5).
 
  Here's two with a bit more:

I would STRONGLY recommend against it.

It is short on eye relief and recoil will probably pound that scope to hell.

I have a Swift Premier 4-12x40 that has been mounted mostly on .243, but spent some test time on my BAR 30-06.  It performed well there, but I don't believe I would push it by putting it on .300RUM.  Swift is well built and sturdy, from my experience, but I just don't think the 1" tube version will hold up to that heavy pounding from the RUM.  It doesn't matter how inexpensive it is if you have to replace it every 10-20 rounds... or even every 50.
