Default Need Help Picking scope for CVA Wolfe muzzleloader

I just bought a CVA Wolf Muzzleloader and i like it pretty well. I Have 200$ to spend on a scope but i am absolutely clueless about them. I will probably be happy with whatever i get i just want something that is good quality and has a lifetime warranty.

Here is one of the ones I would go with. Nikon 1.65-5x36 Omega Muzzleloader Riflescope

it is made just for front stuffers and will provide you with a long life time of use. Warranty is top notch as well.

I have had a Simmons Whitetail Classic since about 1990. First had it on a 7 mm Rem Mag. untill about 5 years ago. Then switched it to a .22 wsm and have abused it since. Held up so well, I purchased another one 3 years ago and put it on my Knight in line. So far so good. Have killed a deer with it every year since. Have not had any problems, or had to adjust the zero since intial sight in. The Nikon Omega probably is a brighter scope, but you can find a Simmons Whitetail Classic for $100 anymore. Time well tell, if the Simmons will hold up to the smoke pole.

That nikon scope looked pretty good... i like how it had different markings for the range.... dead center for 100yds and just a little lower for 150 and just a little lower for 200 ect.... does bushnell make a good scope?

Bushnell trophy XLT, elite 3200 and 4200 are great scopes. Banners are ok but I would go with a Vortex over the banner any day of the week.

I myself would shy away from simmons the last two are the only two scopes that have ever broke on me. Neither of mine would hold zero and neither could shot a box if you tried. I rank them in the BSA, NcStar catagory. Now that is me R-bolt had a good simmons. Maybe some of the Simmons are good but I will never waste my money on them again.

I have 2 nikon Monarchs and a Bushnell elite 4200. I will buy more of these in the future. My deer rifle has a Simmons on it and I had to replace it with a new scope for deer season. I didn't even get a season out of that scope. My Vortex is a crossfire 4-12x40mm

Both are in the same legauge with the Sightron possibly out shining the Bushnell. I would rank both at the same level.

I read on another discussion board that Simmons had been purchased about 4 years ago and the production moved to China. Per some post, the quality is no longer any good. I have seen some of the new scopes for sale in different packaging, no longer in a box and wondered what was up. I guess both of mine were older production scopes and have gooton along fine.
Also saw the Whitetail classics could be puchased for $60.00. I think I paid around $120.00 in the 1990 timeframe. Does not matter there about half price now if there no longer a good scope.
