While testing Remington’s new Model 700 in .375 H&H for a feature article in Rifle Firepower magazine, I dropped it. Oh, the rifle is OK, it landed on the scope; a brand new Leupold VX 2 1-4X. The impact was hard enough to severely dent the adjustment cap.
I figured as a minimum I’d lost zero and at worst broken the scope.
Nope, scope was fine and the rifle was still sighted in. I’m impressed!
