I love Swift scopes. I currently have 4 of them, all of them being the Premier line. I have 3-9x40's on a 257 Roberts and a .270WSM. I have a 4-12x40 on a .270win. and a compact 4x32 on a 45-70. I have never had a single complaint about any of them. While the 45-70 has a good bit of recoil it won't quite compare to a 300wby but I wouldn't hesitate to to put one on it. I worked in a sporting goods store that was a full line Swift dealer and I never saw a swift have a problem because of recoil including sitting on top of .338 Ultra Mags and the .375H&H. All Swifts are crystle clear and in my opinion they are the best scope on the market for the money. I think as long as you use quality all steel mounts you shouldn't have anything to worry about.
Rifles, shotguns, and pistols..oh my!

(Just another place where, for the most part, they would be hunted.) These big animals have the ability to hide in very small, very obscure places. So, embrace the fact (...
