Re: Simmons Blazer 6-32X 44 AO/Target Turret
Sounds like you had the same luck a buddy and I did with his Simmons 6-24. I sold him a brand new in the box Win. 70 Coyote in the 270 WSM. He topped it off with Weaver Rings and laid the scope in. Actually, I did all this for him.
When we went out to the range we were shooting Win. Supreme 140 grain BST's. Adjustments were made but it looked like we shot the paper with buckshot. The scope's target turrets were very sloppy to the point to where I couldn't even tell if we had made a click. The turret would slip rise and then fall into adjustment - sort of like driving over a speedbump. Finally got it shooting consistently but after 30 rounds. I checked the scope, rings, mounts, etc. had good ammo for a factory loading and really expected something better than 1.25 inches.
As you mentioned, not bad for $100 but I think I'd buy a cheaper tasco or bushnell before I'd try that junk again. Just my experience. Get a leupold and never look back!
