Hello all,  can anyone advise me please!  I have a .22-250 rifle applied for and expect it back soon. As i already own a nice Simmons Whitetail Classic scope, i therefore would like to use it on the centerfire rifle. Can anyone advise if this scope would be up to the job. Cheers!

Welcome to OT! With no more info to go on, and assuming the scope is in good mechanical order, and you like it... I see no reason not to use it. Those older simmons WTC and AETEC's were some good optics for what they were.

Agreed, while not top shelf I believe it will be very serviceable.

I bought two of the Whitetail classic 6.5-20x50 from SWFA and they are very good scopes for the money, represent a good value especially on sale.  While not top end like pointed out, certainly adequate and will get the job done.

I've got a 2-10x 44mm model that was made in the Philippines in the 90s. Its adjustments are not that consistent,but it still holds zero. It has good glass with a wide field of view. Resolution is on par with a Nikon Pro-Staff or Bushnell 3200. Mine resolves just a bit less than my Nikon Buckmaster (40mm lens),and is more noticeably inferior to my Vortex Viper (44mm)
But then again, it didn't cost what those two did either!

Thanks a lot for the response guys! 
Got my new .22-250 tikka rifle lifted about 2 weeks ago and fitted and zeroed the simmons WTC to it.
It took me 14 shots to get it zeroed... but clover leafed the last 3 shots at 107 yards, sweet!
Decided to try out the Winchester ballistic tips on some foxes around home. Well was i in for a surprise, shot 5 foxes with 5 bullets and all stone dead. Best of all i was able to clearly see them without a lamp in the recent snow. furthest was 232 yards!
All in all i am well impressed with the scope and the rifle.

thanks again all!
