Dang, somebody needs a better base or needs to retighten the screws. I can't imagine that scope lasting but a few hundred rounds under that kind of stress.

Yea, that's a 50 BMG, but I bet all of our rifles do that to some degree or another. Just can't slow down time enough to see it.

Cool video.
By the time that flexing starts; it doesn’t matter. All that matters is if it returns to the same position every time.

That base and those rings, as well as the rail they ride on, are some of the strongest you can get. I'd bet that any rifle, except for smaller calibers, have some degree of flex.

If that thing is consistent, that's a testament to the scope and how it's mounted.
