Default PA 4-14X44 Mil Mil FFP Scope - Suitable for larger calibers?

I've been thinking about trying out this scope on my .270 bolt gun. I read some reviews from a couple of years ago that mentioned it might not hold up to the recoil of larger calibers. I'm wondering if there are any updates or advice on this subject? Is recoil abuse from larger calibers something that is still a concern on this model?

I'm a huge fan of Primary Arms' stuff and customer service, but I like to do my homework first, of course.

Btw, what is the largest caliber this scope can stand up to? I have a buddy that just bought a savage 110a in .338 Lapua

We never tested that so I can't say for sure.

Shot my FFP scope at NRA midrange match over the weekend, worked spectacular. Shooting F-Class FTR (.308 Win)

Zeroed at 100 yards... pulled up android app.. dialed in my clicks and was perfect vertically at the 600 yard match.

I need lots to practice with my wind reads (horizontally), but vertically it was spot on. 3X's and a bunch in the 8 ring, was my best match.
