Just joined this site, looks like some really good members passing on some valuable information.  Thought I would do the same.  I recently purchased a Nikon Omega scope with the BDC reticle for my Thompson Center Omega.  Before this scope, I have only hunted with Leupold scopes so I was a little hesitant to purchase it and try it out.  Glad I did though.  After about 300 rounds with different bullet and sabot combinations, I have found a load that really works wonders in the Omega with the Nikon Omega scope.  I am using 150 grains of Triple Seven in pellet form.  I am also using a 250 Hornady XTP bullet (not the MAG variety) and the black hornady high pressure sabots.  I have the gun sighted in at 100 yards.  To make a long story short, the circles in the scope work perfectly at 150 yards, 200 yards, 225 yards, and 250 yards.  With a bench rest at the range I was able to keep a 3 1/2 inch group at 200 yards, a 4 1/2 inch group at 225 yards, and a 6 inch group at 250 yards.  Before using this scope, the best I could ever do was a 4 1/2 group at 200 yards and could not shoot past that.  I had the opportunity over the past two weeks to hunt in Delaware and Maryland for the early muzzleloader season.  I was fortunate enough to take five deer over the two week time period.  The gun and scope worked flawlessly.  I hunt out of tripods with gun rails so I did have a gun rest while hunting.  I took two of the deer inside of 100 yards.  Another deer I took at 170 yards.  The final two deer is what completely sold me on this scope and gun combination.  I took a doe at 215 yards and a nice buck at 247 yards (all ranges were found using a nikon legend rangefinder).  The bullet hit right were I aimed both times.  Both deer went about 25 yards and fell over.  If you are looking for a great scope, look no further than the Nikon Omega.  I like it so much I just bought another and put it on my Austin Halleck muzzleloader and will be testing it out soon.  Just for everybodys information- Austin and Halleck just stated that they are going out of business.  They make great muzzleloaders and are beutiful guns (they use fancy maple stocks on their guns).  While these guns are normally on the expensive side, Austin and Halleck is selling them for 50% off while supplies last.  You can check it out on their website.  They are very accurate and beautiful muzzleloaders and you can't beat the price at 50% off.  Looking forward to being a member at opticstalk and hearing from all of you.
