Hey guys... newby question here >>>> Just wanted to know if there's any shortcuts I can do to sight in my new Omega and scope? {Get it on paper} besides going to the range, which I don't have or lazersighting,, which no-one ever seems to get right..... I also would like to know if anyone has ever tried using a pellet gun type scope on a muzzleloader? I have a nice 3x9x50 Techforce scope to use if this would work... If not, I could go back to the 3x9 Simmons I have... Any suggestions would help... Thanks Takeum

Reason why I need to get this information is because Imm supposed to hunt with this new gun by this coming weekend... Should I just carry it with me and sight it in when I get there? I'd hate to run off a bunch of deer on opening day just because I was unprepared.... THis sucks having no gun ranges near Memphis without having to pay huge monies...

You really dont want to put the pellet gun scope on it. Its not built to handle the recoil. And for the getting on paper part, other than bore sighting to get it relatively close youre gonna have to actually shoot it to sight it in. Tennessee's muzzleloader season doesnt open until the 1st weekend of November so you are evidently traveling out of state. Your best bet is to take your 1st morning of the hunt and sight your gun in.

Also, they are gonna ask you to not double post. Just a heads up on that one.

Use the Simmons scope.... Case is right.... the pellet scope is not made for recoil... You can bore sight it yourself by taking the breech plug out. Look down the barrel at a 25 yard target (secure the muzzleloader so it doesn't move), and then line up the cross hairs with the target. You'll be fairly close. Or.... if you have a muzzleloader that you can't look down the barrel you can use a string tied to a wall and the end of your muzzleloader. I did this with my 30/30 last year, and actually got it real close. I was surprised. Secure the muzzleloader..... tie a string to the end of the barrel or have someone hold it...... then stretch the string tight and level to a nail on a wall...... then line up the cross hairs where the string hits the wall...... it worked for me..... You will still have to shoot it..... good luck
