What makes a Muzzle Loader scope different than a rifle scope?

I was considering buying a Bushnell Trophy, but already have a Weaver CV9, and I am fixing to get a new Redfield 2-7, and was wondering, why couldn't I use one of these, as opposed to a black powder scope or shotgun scope.

Rifle scopes work fine on muzzleloaders and slug guns. I  used a Weaver V3 on a heavy recoiling slug for years and it never lost its zero. I now have an old Nikon on my muzzleloader and a Weaver GS fixed power 4.75x on my slug gun.  Scopes specifically for muzzleloaders and slug guns may have a shorter parallax adjustment and are often of lower magnification ranges.  Some also have ballistic markings for longer range shooting.  Given that most of my hunting with these type guns is in heavy cover and short range, I prefer a totally clean reticle and do not worry about lower aiming points.  If I had your 2-8x, I would probably mount it and give it a try.
