You may want to consider an I.O.R. fixed power 4x32 hunting scope. I find their glass is far
superior than any of the other scopes offered. That includes, Leupold, Nikon Monarch, Burris
Fullfield II, and the SS scopes. Don't get me wrong, all that Ihave mentioned are good scopes.
But the a Nikon is brighter than a Leupold and Burris. The SS is fine scope for the money. But
the glass of an I.O.R. is up their with Schmidt & Bender, Zeiss, and Swarovski.
And if you are hunting with a muzzleloader, then you want a scope with low power, either 4-6,
with quick target aquisition and wide field of view. 32mm objective will suffice, because at that
magnification, you do not have to worry about brightness. The lower the power the more bright
the scope is. Also with a lwer power scope, you do not have to worry about parralex as much.
And in all honesty, 100-150 yards is about the maximum range I would harvest a deer at with a
300gr. Hornandy sabot round. Anything past that range and you Hail Marying it. And that is not
taking into account wind drift.
Anyway I kind of got off the subject, check out the I.O.R. hunting line. A fixed 4-6 power will suit
your needs if you stand hunting or stalking. And the have a great lifetime gaurantee.
