So I have a Remington Model 700 chambered in 22-250 with a Unertl 15x scope on it.  I have no idea what the model number is, but it has a very fine duplex recticle, and is 24 inches long. I am thinking of selling it and putting something different on the gun. I have tried shooting with it, and can't do worth a damn at 100 yards. I have a Leupold M8 12x scope mounted on a 220 swift and have shot .5 inch groups at 225 yards with it. I'm thinking about putting a Leupold VXIII 6.5-20 30mm side focus on it instead, or maybe one of the mark 4 scopes. What's this scope worth, and is there any reason why I shouldn't sell it? Here's a picture of it on the rifle and scope.

Cody, Unertl made very fine scopes. The target & varmint models were generally designated by the diameter of the objective lens such as a 1" 1&1/4" etc. You might want to do a search on ebay under Unertl to see some of the different models and what they are worth. Having a duplex reticle is almost unheard of as they are actual wires not etched on glass. If there is something wrong with it (very unusual), Parsons Scope Service can fix it. I would try another known to be good scope on the rifle to see if it shoots fine. Restoring your photos would be a good idea as we could probably give you some idea of what you have.

Whoops, I didn't realize I moved them into a different album. I refer to the crosshairs as fine due to the similar srosshais in one of my Leupolds. It is a very fine crosshair, all the same thickness.

Those Unertls are worth quite a bit of money.  You could probably trade it in to SWFA and practically pay for a nice new scope.....Bucky

Unertl's are so simple and you can't knock them out of alignment. Hard to believe anything could be wrong with it.

You'd better sell it to me for $100, just to remove the headache.

It's a piece of crap, you don't wanna have to deal with that!

Crisp, new $100 bill!

That's certainly a 15x Ultra Varmint u gots there. I also have 1 sitting around, but it was hell on prairie dogs when it was on a 25-06 many years ago. I have 3 Unertls and love them all.
