Not on a pistol, but my dad bought an Encore rifle in 500 S&W with an 18" barrel and it recoils enough even as a rifle that it has tried to rip the scope rings out of the mount on two different mounts. Chewed up the cross slots in the mount after a handful of shots. He finally sent it to in to get the TSOB mount and 3 rings. So far it's holding up well, I can only imagine the added stress the mounts see on a hard recoiling scoped handgun.

After I destroyed a Baush Lomb Elite scope on my FA`s 454 shooting 360gr Corbon ammo I added a fourth ring because of the power involved... Only have two rings on my 41....the more power...the more rings...

Thanks guys. The only other gun I've had a scope on is my 45 Colt Bisley Hunter. 355gr at 1200. With a couple thousand of that round, never an issue with 2X weaver and 4X leupold with the Ruger ring setup.

I have always used 4 on my .454,.475L and .500 WE revolvers and on some bottlenecks in Contenders. I've never had a scope break, slide or rotate using this formula,so that's good enough for me.
