Finding a scope for my new muzzleloader...

Just bought the new TC Encore Endeavor Pro Hunter and I'm EXTREMELY excited to go pick it up this week!! Finding a scope for my new muzzleloader...-gun.jpg
Question is, I've been told all the stuff about recoil and shock factor on muzzleloaders that you cannot have a regular rifle scope on it that it has to be muzzleloader specific...Any truth to it? The two I'm looking at is the Nikon Monarch 4-16x50 (rifle scope) or the Nikon Omega Muzzleloader scope 3-9x40... Any words of wisdom would be appreciated!!

Nice gun!

Not so much the scope specific, as it is the rings. you can put whatever flavor scope on there you like.

A good energy absorbing ring is the Burris Signature Zee's with the inserts.

Best bang for the buck on a scope is the Mueller, just as good as a Leupold and about $200 cheaper.

No truth to the idea the your muzzleloader is any different in recoil than any other centerfire hunting rifle.
Also, the 4-16X50 scope you mention is WAY TOO MUCH magnification for that firearm.
You're shooting maybe 150yds with a smokepole and why you'd need that much magnification is beyond me.
The Nikon 3-9 is more realistic...maybe even a 2-7X or fixed 4X.

Daniel.......the NIKON omega are great if you can afford them. I have a tru-glo scope on my cva wolf.....and it holds pretty good. Can't remember the power for it tho. I think its a 3x12x42 or so.

I read your post from a while back about the tru glo and looked on dicks site for it but couldn't find the exact one!!!! I would be interested in that one as well so I'm going to do a little more research on the tru glo before I buy any other brand and I'll give that one a chance...is it the short scope that you've got?

no....not a short scope at all. It's almost touching my rear sight with the mounts I'm using.
BTW....the scope has a light up bdc article as well.

I have a Bushnell Banner Dusk to Dawn Muzzleloader scope on my Omega and I love it. It is 3-9X40 and has a real nice circle reticle. Make sure you spend the money and get high quality rings and a 1 piece base. Leupold makes the base just for the encore/omega...

I have the same scope on my T/C Impact. They are good scopes for under 100.00, but they aren't nearly as clear as the Nikon Omega. They are a lot cheaper and I won't shoot past 150 yards with my ML so I couldn't justify spending the money for the Nikon.

How do you like the Impact? i have heard some people say it is not up to typical T/C quality and some people swear its just as good as the Omega.
