    the group size doesn't matter for the test. they were showing the scopes toughness not the rifles accuracy

    Holy Crap.
    It was a fucking joke, a play on the whole "no three shot groups" thing.

    I guess i should have used some emoticons.

    Here, have some!

    What happened to the vid from a couple/few years back of the guy throwing his S&B around, then dragging it down a gravel road behind his car?

    I wouldn't exactly call this a "test", merely fooling around. It was kind of fun anyway, especially the reactions from the partially unprepared bystanders.

    Re: optics torture test videos

    I dont understand why someone is doing this to scopes that they paid around 2500$ for.
    I think it is understandable to make a droptest if you do a serious test of a scope but remember, that in most cases, the testers dont own these scopes, it is loaners from the manufacturer.
    In my opinion it is only stupid to drag your own scope after the car or throwing it in a wall.
    What do they want to prove ? Use it the way it is supposed to be used and be happy.
    And what IF they brake the scope, I would not like to make that call and explain what happened

    All that video proved was that it could be remounted and shot after tossing it around with no validation whatsoever of repeatability.

    How typical.

    So what part of <span style="font-weight: bold">"I wouldn't exactly call this a "test", merely fooling around."</span> didn't you understand?

    You'll have to take my word for it in this case, and if you choose not to, let me kindly refer you to the USMC engineers who tested <span style="font-weight: bold">ten</span> copies of the scope in a way more thorough and sophisticated manner than any of us here can hope to reproduce at home. That's what I would call "proof". But I guess you already knew that.
