Love them for comparing loads side by side. The bulls eye is MUCH to big though for these cross hairs.

To get the bullet where you need it you still have to change the settings, why not make it right and level it out? I guess I like things to be right?? It would frustrate the heck out of me to see the scope not level every time I looked at it, but that's just me. Red bull not orange.

i normally never sight in to hit the bulls eye. Once its gone you " or at least i" have a hard time placing the shot close to exact same spot i previously was aiming at.

The POI needs to come down a bit so its only 3" high @ 100. That should put me dead on or just a touch high @ 150.

so you're shooting bottom right? I like to set my in-lines ML's at 12:00 and about 1.5-2" high at 100 yds. The flinters are set close to 1" high at 50 yds as my eyes are not so good with open sights anymore and a 75 yd shot is fairly long for me. The 54 Hawken with the 36" Green Mountain barrel is really accurate but these eyes have trouble getting both sights in focus and I hate it. I said before maybe a peep might help moving the rear sight closer to my eyes and then change my glasses to clean things up? Scopes make things a whole less complicated but then there's nothing like woosh...bang to shatter the morning stillness.

I was holding center of the bulls eye. That 110gr load was something i never used and hit a bit higher than i need.

This is my new mexico muzzle loader i will use this year. I get tired of pulling scopes and remounting them so i figured to make it easy and leave this one as it is and use my other optima as an open site colorado shooter.

I need this one good out to at least 200 yards this year.

Have you tried one of those dots on your glasses? My eyes are junk, and the dot cleared up both sights and the target a little bit too.

It acts like a peep sight, but way cheaper, and legal at primitive shoots. Peeps aren't legal in my club.

200 yds with a PB? You have more faith than me.

Muley not sure what your suggesting but I'm interested. I don't shoot clubs so if a peep is legal then it's the way to go for me I think. If you could pass along the info on the DOT I'd appreciate it. Is it a lens made with a special area for shooting?

At 50 yards i have. Works real good. I will wear them on my glasses during my colorado hunt.

They do a great job @ 200. My other optima puts them right at 1 1/2" for a 3 shot group. I just have to practice and burn the drop #'s in my head so i can remember come hunting season.
