Bob or tenkara can one or both of you install the scope on your muzzy and shoot for accuracy once you receive it? That would give us all on this thread a bit of data to support or disprove the accuracy claims. Maybe try shooting at extended ranges if you can also.  :tup:

And see if you can shoot bullseyes at 500 yards.

Sure, unless I sell it first for $350.  :chuckle:

Does anyone have a number on how many muzzleloader hunters are in Washington?  It seems to be split about 50/50 on who would or wouldn't use a scope.

I really donít want scopes allowed. But Iím 100% putting one on my guns if it passes. So will most everyone and all the new guys joining the muzzy club.

I have never hunted muzzy, But me and a dozen freinds are going to as soon as they make muzzy's 200 yard guns. Can't wait. The number one reason I hear most guy's don't muzzy hunt for elk is I can't get out and chase them any more. Well now if they get rid of those pesky open sights and let us use fine cross hairs so we can shoot 200 yards and still see are target, we will join in on all the early rut fun. It's not rocket science.

If you started muzzy hunting elk to get away from all the crowd's, You might want to sight that old elk rifle of yours in.

Good.

Where I hunt we need a few more guys to keep the elk moving.

They already are 200 yard guns with practice

This is my target for 200yds. With a peep the best I can do is line up my orange thingie with the very top of my bead...at 200yds it looks like a teeny tiny sliver and the best I can do is try and keep it dead center on the tippy top of my bead and squeeze. I feel like a deviation of a hair at that distance and my bullet is off 6Ē or so and there ainít nothin I can do about it. I have to think that with a 1x scope it would be easier. Maybe not. Who knows. I figure that I can hit a pie plate at 200 so Iím good to 500 anyways.

I'm assuming that's off a bench, correct?

Bob and Tenkara, I bought the same scope, the Traditions 1x32 for 59.00. The very few reviews I found are positive for the most part. What worries me is that it only has 3 inches of eye relief. Mine arrived already and it seems to be a good scope
BOOM ...That's funny ....BOOM !

Given that it's 1x is should have a wide field of view? Could you look through it from 3.5 inches away and ignore the black ring around the edges of view?

Nature. It's cheaper than therapy.
