<shrug> If the one I bought hadnt come with a Nikon scope, I wouldnt have gone with the bdc reticle. The way I see it you have to range it anyway so I dont see it making an incredible difference. That said - it's neat. Thats about it.

All MZ are not going to shoot the same. This is what they don't tell you.

I have two and both shoot opposite of one another.
I'm sure the scope is of quality, but I have used a regular mil dot scope for years and I'm satified with it out to 130 yrds.

I bought a 50 cal TC Encore and got talked into the Nikon Omega? I am thinking about taking it off my muzzleloader and putting it on my shotgun. I have a Mossberg 500 and am shooting Hornaday SST shot gun slugs in it 300 grn....2000fps
50 yrds +2.4
100 yrds +2.7
150 yrds 0.0
200 yrds -6.7
Will the Omega work on my shotgun? I cant find anywhere what the increament of drop the scope rectile has. Can anyone help me out?

This Nikon Omega Scope is "overrated" IMO.
Nothing wrong with it, but for the same or less money, you can get a better scope with the same reticle feature.

The Burris Fullfield II is better optics (95% light transmission --- comparable to the Nikon Monarch), and can be purchased with the Burris Ballistic Plex reticle (comes with a calibration sheet for many black powder combinations) for less money than the Nikon Omega (92% light transmission rating).

I wouldn't say the Burris Fullfield II is a better scope than the Nikon Monarch, but it is better than the Nikon Omega. That said, if I already had an Omega mounted on a muzzleloader, I probably wouldn't switch to a Burris, but if you haven't bought yet . . . . . take a look.

Better scope, similar reticle, lower price . . . .
