Default New rifle

I just bought a used rifle, Remington 700 338 Ultra mag., that has a Eagle Eye Optics scope, it is a 3-9x42E, it has illuminated crosshairs and a 30mm main tube, has anyone ever heard of these scopes, I havnt. If anyone has any info on these i would like to hear it. It is really clear but I am brand loyal to Leupold so it might go to the trash and be replaced.

I'm sure your RUM would appreciate a VX3 or Conquest...

Thanks, I already snatched it off and replaced it with a VXIII 4.5x 14, at least I know that this one will hold up.

The Leupold is a good choice for that hard kicking rifle.
You might want to save that Eagle eye scope and put it on a varmit rifle?
