Scope on a Muzzelloader

Postby 8uck5nort » Tue Aug 25, 2009 2:46 am

I am going to scope my CVA wolf this year. I picked up a 40 dollar Tasco 3x9x40 rifle scope and weaver mounts. Question is do I go low rings thus removing the sights or go with medium or high rings with see-through to still use the sights and scope?

Not sure why I would want to use sights if I have a scope, but they must make them that way for a reason.

I have the exact same setup with the exception that my scope is a Bushnell instead of Tasco. Because I left the open sights on my muzzleloader, I went with see-thru rings (high) rings. I've heard that some states will not allow scopes on muzzleloaders (not sure if this is true). Personally, I think it comes down to personal choice and preference as to how the scope is mounted.

Muzzie is scoped and sighted. I went to 100 yrd range last week after sighting in at 25 and 50 yrds. I had a 3 shot 2.5" grouing in a 4 inch circle (about the size of a deers heart) at 100 yrds. Not bad for a smoke pole.

So the muzzie ready.

I've used open sights for as long as I've muzzleloaded.

I have a CVA Optima...and looking to put this on there...

[/size][/font][/u][font="arial, sans-serif"][size="2"]I like the reticles on this scope.

I've heard only positive things about Leupold...has anyone had experience with this one by chance?
