So I am a day or 2 away from purchasing a rifle with scope combo. I read on the website today
What exactly is "Airgun rated". The rifle I want is .308 but I am considering .243 or .223 because of availability. Its the howa / Axiom 1500 that includes the Nikko Stirling scope, but is Airgun rated good enough for a .308 or even a .243 or .223? Seems to me that the kick of a .308 would be many times more than an airgun but maybe I'm just misunderstanding what it means. Any advice on this would be helpful. Thanks!All Nikko Stirling Nighteater riflescopes are airgun rated, shockproof and waterproof. Made from Grade A Japanese lenses that are coated for greater light absorption, these scopes perform excellently at dawn, dusk or in overcast light.
