 Anybody have experience with this scope? Interested in hearing yea/nay regarding comfort behind, particularly at the higher magnification.

Have a varmint rifle whose barrel contour and receiver height require high rings for even a 40mm objective. Cheek weld is only fair; do not want to go with still higher rings. I think can squeeze the 44mm z5 but not a 50, 56mm scope. 

The objective size being what it is, exit pupil is modest for this scope at higher mag - would like to hear what view is like in reality. Straining, fair, pretty decent....?

You really should look at it yourself. Call SWFA (972-726-7348) and talk to them.  I believe you could order it in but not mount it take a look at it to see if it is right for you and exchange it if you decide on a different scope.  Swarovski scopes all tend to be very good.  A cheek rest ammo carrier might be something to consider also just to provide the best possible cheek weld.

Will be a good scope. As far as rings / mounts I think you'll just have to take scope and rifle to a shop that sells different options and try them I'm afraid.
Was sure I had a point when I started this post...
