check to make sure it hasn't turned in the scope rings. I am sure if it is somewhat new simmions will fix as long as it falls within warranty

From your short description, it sounds like the Horozontal (the ELEVATION) reticle is canted to the left. If that IS the case then do this;
Sand bag the rifle on what you know is a level and firm surface. The rifle MUST be level itself. You can use a small level to determine this.
Without moving the rifle, look through the scope and determine if indeed the horozontal or ELEVATION reticle is indeed canted. The reticle should be LEVEL in relation to the ground and the rifle itself.
If it still appears to be canted, loosen the set screws of the scope ring caps (Not the scope mounts) and while looking through the scope, gently rotate the barrel of the scope clock wise until the Horozontal reticle appears to be now level. Re-tighten the scope ring caps and look through the scope again to make sure the Reticle is still 'level'.
You must now make sure that your scope is still 'zero'd'.
IF the issue is something other than what I have assumed from your description, please send me a msg. with more detail and I will be able to resolve whatever issue you are having. Include the 'Brand and model', plus the power of it, and the brand/model/cal. of the rifle the scope is mounted on.
Good luck. :)

it is repaireable but its going to cost more that a new scope,, your one has shook its self apart,, to fix it it needs to be striped right down all the glass will need to be cleaned and after the repair it will need to be refilled with gas,,,,so its not worth the cost of a repair,,sorry

SOURCE: cross hairs sideways?!
If you are seeing an X you need to loosen the scope rings, re-level your scope and re-tighten the scope rings. 10-20 in/lbs on the ring screws, 15-30 in/lbs on the mounting screws. Typical configuration of the turrets is one on the top, one on the right side.
