Can a Nikon prostaff scope handle the recall of a .444 Marlin??? Thanks...
recently purchased a H&R.444 marlin that has a prostaff on it and need to know if it will handle the kick of a crack barrel that size.

Nikon scopes are a solid piece of glass for just about any Magnum recoil, the key to any scope standing recoil is actually the rings and mounts, be sure to get a good set that support a larger area of the tube. A 444 recoil while being brutal actually is less shock to optics than say a 7mm mag or 300mag. High velocity magnums tend to have a quicker recoil and can jar optic internals more.

I have a Nikon Prostaff on a 35 Whelen and have had no problems. So I'm pretty sure it can handle a 444.
