Famed Alaskan Brown Bear Guide, Phil Shoemaker, has had a compact 2.5x Leupold on his 458 Win mag for 20+ years and it still works just fine.

Maybe it's acceptable for your purposes?

Or not? I dunno. One of my favorite scopes. I used to have it on a 45/70 Marlin. Paired up nicely with that.

Regards, Guy
