Ok guys, what do y'all recommend for an affordable and acceptable muzzleloader scope?

I'm leaning towards a fixed 4X as where I hunt, a long shot just isn't going to happen, but am open to any suggestions.

Nikon Prostaff, Buckmasters or a Minox ZA-3 if you can find one of the demo models.

I don't own one, but I think a 4x with quality glass would be a very good scope for a MZ.

what are you wanting to spend as a max? that will eliminate a bunch or at least get in a ball park.

How far you plan on shooting? That may, or may not, save you some money initially.

Sub $150.00, hoping to get something decent for $100.00. I would be in the market for a good piece of glass, but a LOT of my gear was stolen this year and having to replace several basic necessities is already straining the budget.

I'm not hunting any open areas. All of my spots are in heavy cover. 75 yards will be a long shot.

sub 150 i would say Redfield would be your best bet, you should be able to find one in that range on a x36 or maybe even a x40

lifetime warranty and good customer service.
