The X-Sight survived crossbow season.
Now letís see how long it lasts on a .458 Socom.
My cynical side truly expected screen to go black. So far so good stay tuned.

Iím surprised it didnít reset or shut off - as I ran the same test with 458 Socom and the Xsight 1 a couple years back and my scope shut off. The scope mount screws (mount to body) also loosened despite being blue loctited after 25 rounds.

I would have to say your muzzle brake is saving the day
, for now , in your test trials . Take that brake off or put one on that doesnít mitigate that recoil as well and you might see a different outcome.

Leaving it as is seems to work well but I wouldnít want to be to the side of you when you shoot that gun....

I wish you well always, let us know how that goes.

With brakes of that design itís a single point of failure with regards to ďears onĒ

Hunting is a whole different ball of wax versus range shooting - there isnít always a for sure in the field in terms of getting hearing protection on especially in multi shooter hunts.

I took a side blast from a brake like that once without ears on - I lost hearing that day and swore to never use a brake like that ever again on any of my rifles.

Hunt good!
