I recently bought a Thompson Encore with a 45/70 barrel and a 375 H&H mag barrel. I went out to the gun range last night and the scope on the 375 lasted 12 shots before falling apart inside, the scope on the 45/70 made it 8 shots before the reticle fell apart inside. These were new low end simmons "8 point" scopes that came with the rifle. Anyone have any ideas on a good scope for heavy recoil? I have a cople Lupold scopes i could put on the barrels, but Id hate to blow them up too. ones a 4x and the other is a 2x7. anyone have any suggestions? Im kinda partial to Burris scopes, but open to any good optic.
