RE: Scopes from Sportsman's Guide
I have very limited experience with bsa scopes but the little that I did have was not pleasant.A fellow from work bought one because he could not resist the price.However after about three boxes of ammunition fired from his 7mm remmag,something came loose in the scope and began rattling.Shortly after it fogged up.I haven't seen many scope failures,but those that I have seen were
simmons-went blurry after about 30 rounds,sent back under warranty,went blurry again-this time garbaged
nikko sterling two scopes,crosshairs broke in both after being used on 338win
tasco-POI shifted 3" at 100 yards when the magnification was adjusted from 3x to 9x
burris-windage adjustment would move fully to one side by itself
bushnell sportveiw-POI shifted 2" when adjusted from 3x to 9x
All of these scopes with the exception of the burriswere lower priced scopes,most under $100.Coincidence?
