Hey guys, I have been posting a lot, sorry.  How will a Leupold VX-I hold up on a heavy recoiling rifle?  I know its not as bright as others in its price range, but really im more concerned with a scope handling recoil and plus leupold has a great warranty and customer service.  Thanks guys!!

Yes we see all the post but that is OK.....IMO...I would get a Burrris-11 or a VX-11 or a Bushnell 3200.in the price range you are looking at I have these scopes on various calibers and NO problems at all.

You think the bushy 3200 3-9x40 would be able to handle the recoil?

I have one on a 30.06 and even with heavy loads it has never failed.

  Here's another one you may want to take a look at:
 
 I've got an SII on a Lt Wt .300 and have had no problems. They also have a no questions asked replacement guarantee.

Im also looking at the VX-I 2-7x33 but i dont know if that would fit on a long action.  I am hopefully going to cabelas today to look at these scopes, minus the sightron.

Does that mean you did not purchase it here at SWFA if not don't say where, but not cool to get all that info then go elsewhere!

It all depends on what you mean by heavy recoil. Just about any scope will work on rifles up to the .30-06 (or it's "recoil equivalent), at least for a while. The .300 magnums starts to separate the tough scopes from the ordinary scopes, and when you get up to the .338 Winchester and and .375 H&H a lot of scopes don't hold up very long.

All the Leupold scopes are built to the same recoil standards.

did you even consider checking the price here at SWFA or making a phone call to see if they could match what you paid. they even have a 110% price match guaratee..... thats the least you could have done.....IMO

I fail to see how that proves anything.  Lets not argue about this, it's dumb.
