    My 18 year old Bushnell 1.5-4.5 x 20 Shotgun Scope on My 1895 .444 Marlin, has almost died.
    Can't focus anything much after 1.5X
    Also can't group under 6" @50 yds
    I recon it's stuffed.

    I have found this replacemant
    Leupold VX-HOG 1-4x20mm Riflescope....USD$215-USD$230
    Can this handle the recoil ?

    Any comments would be greatly appreciated
    ps I have trouble with red dot, and holographic sights

    I submitted your question to Leupold as I was curious also. We'll see what their marketing people say. Although, I am sure we can all guess. :)

    Leupold's response (http://youtu.be/TPmyEusUhIM?t=1s[​IMG]) :

    Fred,

    All Leupold scopes will easily handle the recoil of a .444 magnum, the VX-Hog is no exception. Use with confidence.

    Best Regards,
    Ryan
