Looking for a new scope for a muzzle loader. Probably in 3-9x40 range would go with smaller opjective and magnification. but they seem to cost more.. Budget is at $200. Most shots will be 100 yards or less. Some low light conditions. Narrowed down to:
Burris FF II
Sightron II
Any suggestions about these or other thoughts would be welcome.
Thanks

Sightron S2 has glass that's a bit better than Fullfield II's and longer eye relief. Fullfield II has an advantage of a holdover reticle which probably does not make much difference for your range.  Go with the SIghtorn on this one.

One thing you should consider is the length of  scope if it is equipped with open sights. Some scopes interfere with the front sight. I would agree with koshkin that the Sightron has better optics.
