    Will this scope take the recoil of a 300 WSM bolt gun?
    Thanks.

    My instinct says yes, but I don't have a lot of experience with Burris.

    It should handle it with no problems. I have a Burris C4 4.5x14x42 and I believe it is very similar to the Fullfield II. I tripped over a root in the woods two weeks ago, my rifle went flying and landed on a pile of rocks that were stacked up when a field was cleared for planting there many years ago. The rocks gouged out really deep marks in my scope and scope mount as well as the outside of my rifle barrel. I expected the glass to be cracked and the internals ruined. It was a very hard hit. I tested the rifle the next day and at 110 yards It shot one inch high and one inch left. Not bad. I checked the tracking and adjustment and the internals on the scope were fine. I can't believe that it hit that hard and wasn't ruined. I think it is a testament to the durablity of the Burris scopes and I can't imagine that it wouldn't hold zero, and if it doesn't, send it back to Burris. They have an awesome warranty. Hope my story helps with your decision.

    No personal experience with that particular scope, but the FF-II line of Burris scopes have a reputation as one of the tougher scopes. If I'm not buying a Leupold or Zeiss, they are my next option.

    Thanks all. I called and asked Burris. They said sure. So I put it on. Went to the range this morning. Using Leupold Zero point to bore sight, I was just a couple of inched off at 100 yards. One more adjustment at 200 meters (yes, that is our range), I shot a sub-inch group. Immediately put the rifle away. I am sub Minute-of-Elk out to 600 yards - it seems.

    Compared to the Zeiss HD5 2.5-10x, Burris has a clearer picture. But the Leupold VX-R 4-12x beats it - not by much. My wife also looked thru all three and she reached the same conclusion - independently.
