I have a simmons 44 mag scope mounted on remington 7400 everything is tight on rifle i shoot adjust the scope i click and my bullet hits 2" toward the direction i wanted to go i go back 1 click and it goes back 3" to the other side i go back the other way and am completely off paper what can i do is the scope probably bad. i sent it off to simmons three years ago for the same problem and had not mounted back on the rifle and still having the same problem. i am wondering if its the rifle or the scope.
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

Mount scope on rifle with the eye relief you are happy with
set up a target at 10 yards and fire 5 rounds of until you are grouping tightly ( no fliers ) you may want to use quite a few targets once you are happy with the grouping remove the adjustment covers on the scope
the top one is for moving the point of impact up or down
the side one is for left or right
depending on the point of impact you need to move it up or down to meet the cross hare once you get the point of impact on the same hight line as the aim point you can move the side adjuster to move the poi to meet the aim point
then move the target out to 20 yards and repeat the above again
then move the target out to a distance that you can put 90% of your shots inside 40mm or better and that is your max range for live animals
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.

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.
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
Please leave feedback, Thanks!
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:
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.
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.
