personally for about $300 I would go with a leupold VX2 309x40 with a CDS. I have a vx3 CDS scope on my smoke pole and love it way more then all the BDC type stuff

Nikon has omegas they have just been renamed the inline XR. Same scope just not paying royalties to TC anymore for the omega name.

I have run this one on my T/C Omega for the last three season's and have been very happy it. With the rebate, it is one of the best deals out there.

I just put this scope on my TC  encore 50 cal Musket.  Right now the scope at the price shown is discounted a hundred dollars.  For years I used a Nikon Omega but the glass left a lot to be desired. I have had several other scopes on that musket but I feel that I definately moved up in quality a lot by going to this scope here. The thing is if you live in a state that has a blackpowder season they probably dont have a rifle season or if they do its does only like here in Iowa. I believe you would be happy with this scope and doubt you would ever feel a need to replace it.

Hi Dave, the draw you hunt over gets pretty dark when the deer are moving at first and last light. I would look at the heavy duplex Leupold's shown above. I would consider the 2-7x33 first out of those. Based on your shooting ranges, the 2-7 set on 6X should be bright enough and the reticle easy to see for your shots.

Ale-
 
I'd say if you are going to get one, go with the best available.  Too bad Nikon doesn't have the Omega's anymore.  Check these out.

Can I get a suggestion for a 50 cal black powder scope.  The gun has real tree camo so would like something with this or matte black. Sub $300 would be good.
