Without all the belittling of these scopes. I have a serious ? What are shooters and hunters thoughts on the lower end of the scope shelf. I know there are the Leupold, Ziess and 100 other scopes out there that are better. I have two game rifles I hunt with. My 243 that's topped with a Tasco 4x32 & my 30-06 has a Simmons Whitetail Classic 2-10x44 on it. I've had these scopes for over 18 years and they've never left me needing more. Optics are crystal clear and these scopes have helped me bag so much game from varmint critters through the gambit of game up to Elk over the last 18 years. I shoot no further than 375 yds. Most all game I have taken is between 175 and 300 yds.
