    Burris made the 1-4x Intermediate Eye Relief Scope back in the late 90's - early 2000's. I bought 2 of them and they are great for the hard kickers. I have them mounted on an H&R .450 Marlin single shot and a .416 Russian Express custom. If you...

    No risk of being a "pundit" because you offer assistance to the OP and address the question at hand. That's the same as I did. We both may be wrong in our assistance but at least we are trying to help the OP and offer some advice. The "pundits"...

    At the risk of being labelled a "pundit"........There comes a point in shooting cast where one must decide to "make do" with tumblelubes and their limitations or step up and use a REAL lube. I would say the OP has a dimensional/fit issue, but...
