recoil ratings for scopes

Postby birddog crazy » Fri Jul 29, 2011 8:42 pm

I have a question, what is if anyone knows the recoil rating for a bushnell banner rifle scope.I have picked up some in trade for some work I did. I have a couple of 4x12x40mm and also some 6x18x50mm. I got some rifles I like to put them on but was curious if they could handle recoil from say a 7mm remington mag or 300 win mag or even a 300 ultra mag.

I don't know what the Banner's are rated for. I had one on my .30/06 and it held up just fine. I know the Bushnell Elites will take a .50 cal though.

I have had them on 6mm, 25-06,30-06, 45-70 and others also but never on a magnum cause my large magnums are wearing shepherd scopes usually but I got 3 new rifles that need scopes and I have these so i was curious.

I would think if it could take a .45/70 it could take a .300. Why don't you just take one off one of your other guns and see if it holds its zero?
