I am thinking if you get a scope for a high powered rifle you should be ok. My Remington 308 has way more recoil than my beeman 22 springer. 

But I could be wrong. If I am, I hope someone will correct me. 

 

 

Its the direction of the recoil. On a firearm the recoil goes straight back. With a spring powered or gas ram the recoil goes forward. Some scopes wont hold up to repeated forward recoil motion and causes the scope to break.
