Anyone use a muzzleloader scope on their rifle? I have a Nikon 3-9 with a BDC reticle. I was thinking of putting it on my rifle instead of buy a new one. I don't see why it would be an issue. Does anyone helse?
But if that particular scope was the one with the BDC designed for muzzleloaders, it may not match up as well as the one made for rifles. You'll just have to test it. Should be strong enough though. Maybe call Nikon too.
I am not too worried about the BCD lines. I would have to practice at the range to see if they match up or where they match up. I figured if I just sighted in using the main crosshairs I should be ok. My budget will not allow me to purchase another scope for this season.

On top of that, he has a pistol range, paintball course, and off road ATV course. All of this for $9, hard to beat that! He's not too busy on Friday's, not sure about Sat., & Sun. Mon. thru Thurs, there's never a crowd. Google search "dragon man, colorado springs" and you can find more info. From Denver, the drive would be about 1 - 1 1/2 hrs., depending on whether your north or south denver.

Not as well-known to hunters today were Martin and Osa Johnson of the early to mid-1900’s. Together they traveled to many places that seemed extremely exotic and...
