I work and Schupbach’s in Jackson,MI part time. We have sold truck loads of them packaged with the Leupold Mark AR 3-9x40 450 Turret with the factory ruger base and Leupold rifleman medium rings with great success. Havnt had a single issue with those rings ever including on slug guns and muzzle loaders in previous years.

I shot it twelve times including one time taking a nice buck. In the mean time, I read the it was a scope killer, so I purchased a Leupold VX-2 3-9X40 scope and Burris XTR Signature 1" high rings. I'm taking it to the range this weekend to sight it in. If you are planning on shooting long distances, the Burris XTR Signature rings have offset inserts to cant the scope down in the front and up in the rear so a flat picatinny rail is all you need. Another plus with these rings is that the inserts grip better than steel rings, so you won't have to worry about the scope moving under recoil. The inserts can also be used to correct any misalignment between the bore and the scope base. These rings are big and beefy looking as well as pricey but you won't be disappointed with them.


Welcome to the forum.
I don’t really know if the 450 B is a scope killer. At first, I expected it to be pretty harsh, but as time passed, I honestly think my Marlin 336 30-30 kicks harder than any of the three 450Bs I own. And the Marlin has killed at least three scopes. All Bushnell. I will NEVER buy another bushnell scope. I’ve put Simmons on most of my rifles. The 450s however I’ve gone a different direction. For bullet testing with the AR 15, I’m using the Nikko Stirling. For hunting, I’m using the Pulsar XP38.
For the Ruger American, I’m using a Nikon Buckmasters and for my New Englander single shot I’m using a Simmons.
I really like Nikon and Simmons for conventional glass. Redfield and Burris would probably be other choices for glass.
But for hunting with the AR this season, I’ve gone with the Pulsar XP38.
I also have two 6.5 Grendel ARs and one of them has the ATN XSightII 5-20 and the other has a high end Simmons.
My 6.5 Creedmoor has the Nikon Black 1000 sfp.
So far, they all have held up very well.

He'll be putting a Leupold 3-9x40mm scope on the rifle.


I'm using the Leupold VX-R 3x9 40 mm with the ballistic fire dot reticle. Have not had any problems with it. 9x is enough power for the BM ranges - about 300 yds is the farthest I would shoot.

I use one of the offset mounts to give me a little more eye relief - either the Burris PEPR or the Nikon P or M series. The scope should not extend beyond the charging handle. Ask me how I know.

My right eye lost its virginity to a 7mm Mag Rem 700 featherweight back in 1980. I'll never help someone sight in a scope on an unknown rifle again! :|

i got kissed by my 30-06 back in my early teens... just enough to let me know i'd screwed up, but not enough to give me a shiner or a scar to remember the event by.


my uncle though - whole different expierence lol

he came up hunting with us and wanted to sit on the big field - well at the time all he had was a 35 remington. and that field offers shots upwards of 200 yds.... so dad being nice, wants to make sure he can take whatever walks out in front of him, says "here take my 30-06, i'll take my shotgun today, i wanna go hunt in the river bottom anyway"

so uncle Joe goes out to the hayfield, deer everywhere in front of him that afternoon/evening. he waits patiently to line up a twofer, squeezes off the round and *wham*

Image

broke his nose, two black eyes, bleedin all over the place from the cut at the top of the bridge of his nose. :shock: :shock:

we head on over and he's apologizing to my dad for getting blood on the gun :lol: :lol: :lol:

he did get both deer though - high double lung/spinal on the first, right thru the 10ring on the 2nd - two tags filled with one shot! and he's never shot that gun again since :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Where it happened, they call it "Magnum Eye." Doesn't need to be a magnum, though.
