Had one.  Used it for a short time on 30-06 and 7mmSTW, then used it for a target for my 458 Lott.  Much better use than as an optic.  But that is a set of one… some people really seem to like them.

I have that one on a Savage 17HMR.  It has the tall, capped "target" turrets and mil reticle.  It is OK at 100 yards until you get past ~15/18 power.  After that it gets dim and slightly blurry.  There are better scopes out there.  The turret clicks are mushy and wiggle between clicks.  It was the one I could afford at the time.  I messed up and got a scope with "just ok" glass and high magnification to compensate for not having a good spotting scope.  Lesson learned.  Don't take this the wrong way, the scope is usable and it hasn't slowed the fun of shooting my rifle.

Over the years, I have had several Simmons scopes.  The glass was OK for the price, but not one ever held up on a rifle with recoil.  They may be OK on a rim-fire.

Lots of scopes better than Simmons.  Check out the Bushnell Legend Ultra HD 4.5-14x44.  I bought one back when they said use it for a year and if you don't like it we'll buy it back.  I now have two of them.  Only downside IMO is the length.  It's a pretty long scope.
