I have a Smith and Wesson 6 X 24 scope mounted on a Savage .308 tactical.  Being new to long-range shooting, my knowledge of scopes is some what limited but despite adjusting magnification, eye relief, and yardage, the clarity in excess in excess of 100 yards seems some what less than desired for a scope of that magnification.  If any also has this scope or has knowledge of it, I would appreciate any and all feedback regarding the scope itself or what I can do to improve its performance.

As a general rule, companies that make guns make poor optics, Springfield Armory being a classic case in point.  You may be a good cook, but can you farm?

 
In the end, you gotta dance with who brung ya'; and I much prefer to purchase my guns from companies that specialize in what I need  - and buy my optics from optics companies.
 
I know nothing of the scope but can say with some confidence that my knowing nothing of it ain't a good thing.  Chevy makes a good truck but would probably make a piss-poor HDTV - just my opinion.

 I think what generally happens is that the "gun" company contracts a "scope" company to allow them to market an existing scope with the "gun" companys'  name on it.
 Since you have basically added a middleman to the equation, (who needs his cut of the profits,)  the end consumer USUALLY gets less value for his dollar. ( Not always, though.)
