Over the holiday weekend, I mounted the BSA Catseye 1.5x4.5 on my 44mag using a one-piece Weaver base and Weaver 4x4 rings. With handloads consisting of 270gr Speer Gold Dots and 20gr H110, 3 shot groups @ 100yds averaged 1.078". I am very happy with this rig. The BSA scope is excellent quality for the $ spent, and the handling of the rifle was not adversly affected. This rifle will be great when I am hunting out of my Ol' Man climber in the hardwood swamp and the pine plantations, where ranges will be short. I won't have to worry about recoil knocking me out of the tree, like I do with my 444 with heavy loads!
