    hi , have you tried eliminating some things , could you mount the scope in a heavy vice (not on the rifle ) and 100 yards away place a target so the scope zeros in on the center,zero in by adjusting target not scope,now with everything lined up , Tap the vice with a hammer to cause strong vibration and see if the scope moves off target , if you can get it to move then the internals of the scope are loose and youll be adjusting forever.Also have you tried the scope on another rifle?

Mount the rifle with the scope and make a mark on the backstop right where the crosshairs are pointed at

Shoot several times, several shots will surley jolt the scope some.

If the crosshairs have moved much past your mark then this would indicate the scope is the issue.

If the crosshairs are still pretty well centered to the mark, its not the scope.

If at the same time your grouping looks terrible, and your scope still is on the mark, and the gun is WELL mounted, then the issue is with the accuracy of the rifle.
Make sure the rifle is mounted good for this to ba accurate .
Hope this helps

44 magnum bullets for deer hunting rifle


Actually called 'ammunition'. On the barrel, near the muzzle, it will tell you the exact round as there are a number of 44 Mag rounds. Here are some of them for sale. There are images in the main link and one is called Buffalo Bore, Deer Grenade which is a hollow point round at 240 grains.

Simmons 3*9 22 MAG scope


Hi,
I bought one SIMMONS 3*9 MAG 22 riffle scope from USA last month in $54 and fixed it on my .22 riffle with proper instruction. When I shooted 2-3 bullets, its + sign is moved from actual target.

I made the target and + again in sync and after shooting 3-4 bullets, its + changed the position. After consulting with some mechanic, he told me the SIMMONS telescope is manufactured in China and its acuracy is not upto the mark. He was advocating me to buy bushnell scope for my riffle.

Now I am confused and not able to identify how to fix this + movement problem in my scope.

Can anyone please help me on this ????

Your reply is very much anticipated.

Thanks !!

My 22 mag 4x32 rifle scope not stay on zero inspite of tight mounting .


I don't know what you have done already, but, remember there are two areas to tighten. The scope rings to the scope mounts and the rings themselves around the scope.
you have hopefully forgootten one step.

If not, take it to your local Gun store and I'll bet they won't charge you much if anything for looking at it.

all you can do to raze the point of aim is to jack up the eye end of the scope with 35mm film strips or some thin shims,,,three strips of film will pick up the point of aim by miles

Keep having to resight scope


Sounds like they are right. The cross hair adjustment mechanism may be defective. I'd call bushnell and see what they can do for you.

Simmons aetec, put on muzzleloader to boresight and adjustments work in reverse.


It's a common misconception to think that you're moving the bullet impact on target, when in fact you're moving the scope's reticle to look where the rifle is shooting.... So if your shooting left of your target.. you want to move the crosshairs to the right.
Hope this helps, mark the Gunsmith

Need a manual for a simmons rifle scope model # 1022


When you click on "customer service" on the simmonsoptics.com website, it takes you to the Bushnell customer service web page.

The number for customer service that is given is:

1-888-276-5945

The customer service rep. told me to "go to the Simmons web page".

Which, of course, takes me back to the Bushnell web page. It's a circular race track.......

In my opinion, Simmons/Bushnell has lousy customer service.

I bought a 2nd hand Simmons 3-9X50 scope (model #800479) that needed the screw on caps for the reticle adjustment screws. A small request, I thought.....one that should be easily remedied by calling Simmons/Bushnell customer support.

No dice. Customer support told me to spend $15 to send them the scope, and then they "will have to look around and find something that will fit."

Oh really??? Doesn't Simmons/Bushnell already KNOW the sizes of the parts they have?

Just send me the damn caps. They will cost Simmon/Bushnell no more than a buck apiece.

Then I asked for a user manual for said scope. No dice. The customer support lady told me to find the manual on the Simmons web page.

The Simmons web page doesn't provide user manuals online.

Their customer support needs a lot of improvement.

Simmons Prohunter Model 517710 won't shoot a group


You SHOULD send it back. There is something loose inside the scope. Even the worst Simmons scope will get you to 2"-3" group. Also, when you replace it, you might want to consider their (or Nikons) shotgun scopes. They are built to with stand the power of the higher centerfire calibers and magnum shotgun shells.
