Sighting in Scope
Hello, I bought another rifle, CVA Optima Pro and put a scope on it, 3x9 40 Bushnell.

I have never had a scope, what is a good distance to sight it in?

Thanks for the help.

Hey buddy, I have the same scope on my 06 and 100 yds has been the best sight in range for my setup. In fact, I think that 100 yds is the average round about distance for most people.

Thanks timberghost, I will give that a try

Start at 25-30 yards to get close and then move out to 100 to fine tune it

I hope you had that scope Boresighted... If not that should be your first step.
100 yards is an ideal distance to sight in your Muzzleloader, you may want to start at 50 yards for the first few rounds to see what your rifle is doing and then if it's shooting OK at 50 yards you can move out to 100 yards for fine tuning.

Good Luck...

i use a bore sighting device.i start at 25 then 50 then to 100 saves on ammo if you bore sight first
