Picked up a BSA 6-24 variable scope the other day, works great on my 10/22 but one of these days I am going to get around to mounting it on a 223 or 308. can anyone tell me how well the scope's zero would hold with that kind of strain? also anyone know if BSA makes a good scope?

Also anyone know where someone could get a good quality higher powered variable scope?Some I perfered to see EXACTLY where I am putting it NOT guessing...any suggestions on a company one could look into?

BSA is a low cost scope made in Korea. Korea isn't known for high quality optics but they are better than the ones made in China. You have to be very careful when you select scopes for gas operated autos like the M14 ect. It tends to tear them up

I would probably be putting it on a bolt action. Do you think under those conditions it would perform well?

Is there any company you would recomend that puts out a 40 or 60 something variable?

Variable scopes of that high of magnification are rather rare The most magnification I know of is four times from the erector system . The way a scope works is it takes the magnification of the objective lens and multiplies it times the power of the erector cell and then multiplies that figure by the power of the eye piece. This means the focal length of the objective must be pretty long and due to the restricted light transmission it would have to be very large.. You have about as high powered a variable that will give good images as they make. In the 24X

Check out Night Force Scopes. I believe they have scopes that go up to 46 power

I put a BSA 6x24 Contender on my Rem 700 ADL in 30-06, I have shot just over 150 rounds thru it so far, and I havent had any zero shift yet.
The only thing i have noticed is that its a lil dark, mine is the 40mm objective. Give it a try, if it doesnt work, put it back on your 10/22, thats what i had planned for mine to begin with, but figured id give it a torture test first.-----Cuz

The BSA Platinum Series, which is the only BSA's with which I am familiar, are made in Japan, not Korea. I have an 8-32X44mm Tasco World Class TS, and the same scope in BSA. They are identical, except for the type of turrets and dot size. Regretably, I sold my BSA to a friend for $120. Wish I had it back.

If you want a better scope, get a Leupold.

I put a BSA Contender on my DPMS AR-15
After about 2000 rounds the scope is still on zero. Great scope for the $$$
