From Bushell. Shockingly, a round that hits thin aluminum and nothing vital doesn't bring down a scope (At least the mechanicals of it).

What impresses me more than anything is that Bushnell techs can use a collimator. Woops, I didn't mean to say that out loud.

When I worked for Burris not too long ago a customer sent in an MTAC 1-4x scope that he was using for 3-Gun. He'd abandoned his rifle in a plastic water barrel (common to do on 3-Gun stages) and one of his pistol rounds had managed to hit the water barrel, shoot through it, and hit his scope. The customer claimed that he managed to finish the match with that scope with a pistol bullet still inside.

as opposed to what for adjusting the optics? that's what collimator are for right? align optics using a beam. We have one here for our cinema lenses.
