Anyone using one of these with an electro dot plex? How do you like it and is it just to big and heavy for a standard hunting rifle? Maybe an Encore Muzzleloader.

I haven`t used this scope, but have some experience with an electro dot scope on a friend`s rifle, not a muzzleloader. Their best advantage is in very low lite and under dark conditions. If you`re going to hunt during those times, this Bushnell is a very good choice.
Its listed weight is 15 oz, which is about normal for most if not all 30 mm straight tubed lower powered variables.  Imo, for such lower powered variables they are too heavy, which is why I  prefer owning a 9 oz 1" tube straight tubed scope, even though it doesn`t have an illuminated reticle.
I don`t know what your muzzleloader weighs, but with this particular 4200, figure adding on about 20 to 22 oz with your bases and rings.
Imo, if you are not going to be hunting under very low light or under dark conditions, I see no real advantage to the illuminated reticle. It would seem to me that at most if not all muzzle loader hunting ranges, a 2.5x FX11 Ultralite that only weighs 6.5 oz (Leupold`s listed weight on their site), would do anything that this 4200 can do, along with much better eye relief. If you would rather have a variable, the 1.5-5x20 VX3 weighs in at about 9.3 oz while the low variable Sightron is at about 10 oz.
