Question about Barska Optics Barska 10-40x50 Ir Swat Tactical Riflescope Ac10550
Thinking about purchasing 10-40X50 IR swat.
Will it handle the recoil from a 300WSM on a remington 700 no muzzle brake,with out voiding the warranty.
Well, it Barska says it's .50 cal proofed, whatever that means. One would presume it could take 30 magnum recoil then.
On the other hand, Barska is a low end quality manufacturer. You cannot expect durability in a low end scope. Of course, you could get lucky.
Unless you're target shooting at an immovable object, 10x - 40x is much more power than you'll ever be able to use. You're much, much better off considering a 4x - 16, for instance, in a higher end scope line than this scope.
Consider that at 40x the exit pupil would only be 1.25 which would make even the highest quality scopes quite dim. Barska won't have be best glass in the world and so would probably be unusable beyond some level like 18x unless in very favorable conditions anyway.
The problem with heavy recoilers and scopes is that the heavier the scope the more likely it is to take damage due to recoil. It's because it hangs out there on those high scope rings, and is heavy.
