What are your suggestions for a decent cheap scope for a muzzleloader. Say under $100?

Lets hear em.

Just wondered if you would consider a fixed 4 X 40 or 6 X 40. They usually cost less than the variables allowing you to buy more scope for the money.

Take a look at the cabelas alaskan guide series of scopes. Last time I checked a bunch were slashed about 50% and on clearance. I don't know who makes them for them, but they will back it up. I've never purchased anything with the cabelas name that was trash.

I just put a VX-III 3.5-10x40 on my Savage ML-II. It is a tack driver. I took the Nikon Monarch off because I was not happy with light transmission.

I'll have to agree with the Bushnell Banner. I have two one on a
308 and one on a 270 that have been on them from the early to
mid 1960's and have taken their share of game and are still going
strong.
