Got on paper at 100 yards(2 shots where black stickers are),made the windage correction of 2 MOA to the left, and 6.5 MOA up. The scope seems to track well enough to achieve a rough zero. My last shot (ran out of pre made loads) was just above the bulleye as I hoped. I need to shoot some more, but so far so good.

Yes, toilet paper tube view at a 100 yards, but still better then a peep sight in my opinion.

I have a new vortex 1x muzzleloader scope. $275 if anyone interested. Located in Maple Valley. Decided to stick with my Aimpoint.

Check eBay. Vortex 1x going between $325-$405. Some other States passed same rule for this year so, 1x scopes hard to find. Retail should be $199.

Vortex is about to send a literal truckload or more to sportsmans in the next couple weeks, or so they said last week.

Iím not a fan of red dots, so I bought the vortex. Canít say Iím completely convinced in trusting a cheap vortex scope. I canít wait for other manufacturers to start producing legit 1x scopes.

My bet is that most of us who put on Vortex 1X scopes will be quite happy we did. I guess time will tell.

I wonder how many people will touch their nose to their screen trying to read this...

I hope so, and i agree most people will be plenty satisfied.
Im just not willing to trust my vacation time and effort/expense to a $100 scope, from a manufacturer not known for reliability.
