I have a 6 x 18 Leatherwood on my 22-250 and it works great. I have shot at least 500-600 rounds through it and it has functioned flawlessly. The clicks are accurate and it is as clear as my Leupold. Sneeky you may have just got a bad scope or maybe the caliber was too much. I had a leupold go bad. It was my fault, the front ring was ever so slightly out of line and when the weatherby spoke the scope went blurry. The scope was in a bind in the rings and the combination of the torque on the scope and the recoil of the big .300 weatherby trashed the scope. I got a new one from leuopld and now I use a ring alignment tool to make sure its true. Im not making excuses for Leatherwood but there are "bad ones" in every product line. good luck
