My scope experience is a little limited as i tend to hold on to them. It seems to me though the quality scopes have a lot more clarity, weather resistance, and maybe a few other perks. My cheap scopes and expensive ones both shoot the same as far as accuracy goes though. I just can't use some is certain weather or light conditions. Hope that helps.

I have one of the old Whitetail Expeditions and they are good scopes as are the Whitetail Classics. I have broken a couple of the newer scopes. I have seen some higher power Classics on close out I believe at SWFA. They sent me an Atec as a replacement and it would not handle the recoil of a 308.

Dam, I miss all the fun. Vulgarity? deleted posts? These are the days of firear...ah. nevermind.

Simmons is one of "those" brands in the 50/50 category as far as Im concerned. It could last 5 rounds from that rifle or 50. 500? yeeeah, I dunno. maybe. outlive your rifle? I wouldnt put money on it.

I say mount it, shoot some and see what happens. I've seen and owned plenty of "low end" scopes that kept on zero waaaay past their reputations. LOoking forward to a range report on this one.

Thank you, I was taught that when you make a mistake you stand up and take responsibility for it, it saddens me that the majority of my generation does not share these simple ideals.
