hi, I have a 10 power MOA.  I have had it for about 1 year. it is nice and clear. Yesterday I loaded some 7 mm amo 1/2 gr lighter.  It was off to the left 3/4 inch.  I tried to bring it over to hit bulls eye. I got it to hit bulls eye. Then it shot 3 inches to the left and down 1 inch. I thought i made a mistake. I shot 2 more times. The same area. Not a good group. Checked everything on my gun. Decided to go 3 MOA to the right.  it went 6 inches from last group!! I had someone else shoot it. It was the same.  What are the warranties on this scope?  If it needs fixing can i up grade to a 16 or 20 power?  Thank you.

My suggestion would be to call SWFA on Monday.They do stand behind their scopes. I would also check all the connections, I.E. rings to the scope, rings to the base, base to the receiver. I have had them all rattle loose, esp. on a magnum. Anther way to tell, is to look in front of both rings for evidence of the scope sliding forward during recoil.

Yep, sounds like ring problems, but I might be wrong. I had the same thing happen on my beloved 10x SS in crappy rings.

Suggestion from one of my gunsmiths a long time ago:  ALWAYS check attachment screws EVERYTIME before you use your firearm.  Never put it up without checking, never take it out without checking. 
 
From experience... I was at the range using someone else's rifle in Afghanistan and I didn't check everything before shooting... the optic fell off while I was firing... ALWAYS check.

Wow! Good thing it happened at the range and instead of in the field.

And thanks for your service!
