So, I'm shooting my Mauser 8 MM today at 300 yd. Finally had it sighted in and was starting to push it. So, I have a Barska 20-60 x 60 spotting scope I picked up in Cabela's. I have the rifle set up in a Lead Sled with 25 lbs of shot in it and I'm holding it down as well...but even with that, it still kicks like a beast....enough to lift the rest and the 25-lbs of shot.
Well...I fired and my spotting scope went down to the ground from the bench. Now, it won't focus. The focus knob moves and then the whole scope goes black.
I can open it up and get inside to fool with it, but I don't know what to do...
...is this fixable? Is it worth it? Or did I just ruin a spotting scope?
Returning it is not much of an option. It will be over a month when I get back out, and I already had thrown away the packaging.
