    I've had a high country 3X9X40 on my muzzle loader since I bought it in the early 90's. Works just perfect for a muzzle loader.

    Any 3x9 will work just fine as long as it’s not a rimfire scope. Mine is a Nikon I believe. I just like their glass better.

    I always used a fixed 4x40 (or iron sight) on my muzzleloaders and had no issue. Bought a new one with 3-9x40 Kona Pro BDC included. One season in I like it. Don't see me switching until that changes.

    My wife has an old Tasco 3X9X50 on her 336. She has killed a lot of deer in the last 15 years and it has stayed on perfect zero every season. I don't know about the newer Tascos but the quality is probably not as good. She uses open sights on her ML and doesn't want a scope on it.
    Her eyes are better than mine.;)

    Can you even call it a scope without a gold ring? Lol I'm down to one Nikon that's still a decent scope for what i use it for. For hunting in those low light conditions its Leupold all the way.

    There's much better out there. I have a few. But for critter killing, Leupold is the best I can find for the money. They're perfect for hunting guns

    I still have to take you up on that offer and look through one of those scopes.... Actually I better not. I need to keep my standards where they are !
