Scopes - Redfield:
I have a Redfield Golden 5Star on my Savage 110(or I should say "used
to"). It's 4-12x39. After approxemently 250 rds the rectile is loose. When
looking through the scope while adjusting the power ring, there is noticable
rectile slop. Sometimes when going from one extreme stop to another, 4
to 12, the rectile appears slightly cocked. The scope has not been dropped
checked, and the whole rifle package hasn't been abused. Is this normal
Redfield quality? Where do I send this piece of crap to get repaired now
that Redfield is shutdown?

I heard of "dropped reticle" Redfield problems in SEA, at the time the cause was thought to be not covering the objective and allowing the sun to shine in and heat up the reticle causing it to release. I really don't know if that really ended up being the true cause. The (old/my age) Marine shooters will know.
