I was given a Leupold scope a 2x7 rim fire model. I would like to mount this on a Savage 99 in 250 savage. Would this scope stand up to the recoil of the 250 savage.

I have come to a conclusion,
that one useless man is a shame,
two is a LawFirm, and three or
more is a Congress.

I have two of these scopes from about 12 years ago. I put them on very accurate 22 rifles and to my chagrin I discovered they both shifted impact on the target when I turned the magnification ring. One was about 3/8 inch at 50 meters, the other about 3/4. I'm going to give them to some kids who have inaccurate 22's that won't know the difference. If your 250 can live with that then go for it. A Leupold tech told me they're airgun rated, but I don't read anything into that from past experience with many Leupold scopes. I really wish I could love Leupold, but...

It should hold up as well as any other V-1 series. If it's got friction adjustments, I think it may be better than the later ones. You may have to chase a zero a bit, as usual for those.

Sight it in at 7, then check for POI shift at 2 or at whatever power you expect to carry it at.


What fresh Hell is this?

Running a Leupold 2-7 on my 4.5 lb Montana 358 WIN, no issues with it and it's recoil far excises what you are putting it thru.

Only difference between the rimfire and standard models is the rimfire is parallax adjusted to 60yds and non-rimfire fixed parallax Leupolds are parallax adjusted to 150yds.
