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.
Any good rifle ranges of 200yrds or more within an hour or so of Denver? I see Cherry creek has one, but not sure if it's worth my time from what I have been told.
You can come down to Colorado Springs and use Dragon Man's. He has a 100 yd. rifle, 200 yd. rifle, and a long range, I think it's 1000 yds. 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.
So you've booked an outfitted hunt this year. And you're going to get to ride horses into the mountains to save your legs and your back.
I've met lots of guys who've been in this same situation. They figure, "heck, how hard can it be?" But, I assure you, if you don't learn to get along with your mount for the week, it's going to be a bumpy, scary, noisy, and life threatening experience.
First, let's start with the horse itself. A horse trained under western style has 4 gears. The walk, trot,...
