How much weight were you using on your sled when your scope broke?

I have read that some wooden stocks broke because of too much weight.

I figured I could use an 18 lb weight to be close to the same weight generated from a 3006 in recoil.

Maybe this is what happened to a cheaper scope on my son's rifle that I just replaced it with .

Not much, probably 10-15lbs maybe. I had a small broken stepping stone I put in it . Most of the time I used no weights at all though.
