I am looking for scopes for an Encore .50cal muzzleloader with an additional 30-06 barrel.   I'm not able to purchase a high end scope like I see most talking about.

I'm leaning toward the Nikon Pro Staff scopes.

How would you rate the Pro Staff scopes for quality vs. cost?  Are they durable?

pass on the prostaff... Not worth it.  Look at getting a simmons Aetec, Leupold VX-II, or a muzzleloader/shotgun scope.  These will have much better eye relief...

 

I have a compact Burris 1-4x on my TC Omega.  It does a great job.

the prostaff is a good scope for the money, superior to the Aetec, and will suit you just fine.

No need to argue... just look at the stats.

 

Nikon Prostaff 3-9x40 ($150)

3.6 inch eye relief

no multicoating = relatively poor light transmission

Field of View at 100 yards = 33.8-11.3

 

Simmons Aetec 2.8-10x44 ($130)

5 inch eye relief

fully multicoated = great light transmission

Field of View at 100 yards = 44-14

 

You make the call... 

 

By the way I have nothing against Nikons.  I think the monarch line is outstanding.  I just put one on my new AR-15!  The Buckmaster line is also o.k.  I just think the prostaff are obviously not worth it as stated above.
