I just recently bought a Rem 7400 30-06 with a simmons 3-10x44 scope on it paid $250 for the whole set up looks brand new had only been shot a handful of times. I got it home tried to check the scope tightened everything down, went and shot and i had to MAX the elevation out on the scope and it still hits 2 inches low at 50yds. Where should i start on fixing it?

You may can move your scope forward or backward a bit to help you. But not sure you'll gain much by moving it either way.

It has the high mounts on it so that you can still use the iron sights on it..

You could try some low mount rings. That would probably help you out more than anything. Are the rings and bases made together or do you weaver style bases and separate bases

its not the one piece its the weaver style... it is notched so that you can only mount the rings in one spot cant slide them back and fourth

Ok. If you didn't have just bases I would send you some that should fit. If you have an extra set of rings that are lower try that. If you want to use your iron sights I don't know what else for you to do lol.

A shim on the bottom of scope between the scope and the lower half of the rear ring will permit the crosshairs to be adjusted to point of bullet impact. I use a shim made out of the flexible plastic used for clear flexible display sales container. The plastic package the razors are sold in is what I prefer. Cut the plastic no wider than the rings and no longer than 1/2 the diameter of the scope. No shim on the top half of the scope. Flat or slightly curved plastic works best. Trial and error will tell you how much thickness is needed. Usually one thickness is enough. Remember that to raise the point of impact, you raise the rear of the scope. That will permit you to align the crosshairs with where the bullets hit.

You can also shim the rear ring between the weaver rail and the base - that will bring the POI up in relation to the scope.

And don't forget to back your adjustment back to midpoint before starting so you get your full range of adjustment back.

Just sell it to me for $255.00 and you won't have to worry about it anymore.
