Golden Triangle Whitetail – Illinois 2nd Gun Season 2010

I went down to GTW in Schuyler Co., Illinois this December for their 2nd Gun Season. I didn't see the buck I was after…well, at least not within 200 yards,…


Q&A:

shiftfmf asked How are gun scope covers installed???!!!?

I have a Nikon Omega mounted on my muzzleloader and i want to put flip caps/covers on this scope. I'[m not sure how they are installed, because they are suppose to be weather proof, and i don’t want to buy some over the internet before i’m sure how the are installed. Any help would be great!!

And got the following answer:

Scope covers are chosen by type – most today slip over the scope on each end, but, you have to be sure to buy the correct size.

Good example are the Blizzard covers. They come in black, clear, and yellow – they have a size chart on the back – you simply match up your scope front and back on the chart and then buy the right ones.

Besides the chart – you can also take caliper and measure the outside diameter of the scope lenses – and choose that way.

Some scope covers are metal (very popular in Europe and Russian optics) and these thread into the inside of the scope – if it has threads. These threads are always metric – rounded off to the enarest mm. If your scope has common threads that match current cameras lenses – you will find that using a Nikon or Canon lens cover is 20x nicer and better than a regular scope cover.

www.midwayusa.com has a ton of them. But – you gotta know your scope’s lens to the nearest .001″ or get your hands on a Blizzard chart to be sure. Yes, you can download the Blizzard chart – but – just be sure your printer is set to print 1:1 or the scale will be off.

Good Luck

Mileman95 asked I have a TC Omega with a Nikon Omega scope i load my gun w 100 grains and a 225 grain sabot.?

My nikon scope is designed with standard cross and has three circles below I have watched the video on my scope it says w 150 grains of powder and a 225 grain sabot the cross is 100 yards and each circle below is an aditional 50 yards up to 250 yards how can i calculate my load of 100 grains of powder and 225 grain sabot with the circles below the cross so i can make thoes long shots accurately
i was just at the range yesterday and it is a 100 yard long rang.

And got the following answer:

Without a lot more information about your 100 grain load, you can’t calculate the trajectory. You need to get to the range and actually shoot this load to re-calibrate the point of impact for the circles.

point g asked 50 cal Thompson Center Omega w/ 3 x 9 Nikon scope, ideas for best deer load?

Whitetail hunting, maybe wild hogs. I have 777 pellets and various ammo for it, just curious what others have had good success with. I like power belts for loading and accuracy but have heard a lot about them breaking apart and not getting good penatration. Thoughts??

And got the following answer:

thompson is a good muzzel loader probally among the best. I like using sabots and pyrodex. I shot a doe last yeare at about 150-175 yards with mine using nothing but a 3/9 walmart nikon

dominiklalka asked Has anyone used the Nikon Omega scope with the BDC reticle, if so how did it work ?

And got the following answer:

My brother-in-law has that set-up and loves it. He says it’s about as accurate as a standard centerfire rifle out to 200 yards with the compensation. I plan on getting out with him in the near future to shoot some staked clay pigeons and see how awesome it really is.

dominiklalka asked Does anyone own the Nikon Omega scope?

If so how does it preform on your muzzleloader?
What type of load do you use?
What gun are you shooting?
Rich has a primative mind!
Rich has a primative mind! Please if you don’t have this scope, don’t bother to answer!

And got the following answer:

Well Nikon has a life time warranty which should say a lot for its self.
The clarity will spoil you, you will be sticking Nikon an everything.
I have never had any trouble out of any of my Nikons.
I run 110grs Triple seven with a 250grs TC Shockwave in my 50 cal.
The Triple seven is one of the hottest black powder substitutes and you don’t use the same amount as you would with black powder.
Triple Seven tell you to reduce by 20%, my max for my rifle is 150grs Black powder minus 20% tell me my max of Triple Seven would be 120grs, I get best accuracy with 110grs.
I would always transport the weapon with a scope in a padded case to help protect it from unnecessary shock and vibration doing this has kept all my scopes safe.
Anytime it’s in my vehicle it is in a case truck, car or 4 wheeler, it’s in a padded case.

Hunt&Fish asked T/C Triumph bullet drop?

I dont have a lot of time to go out and do the testing myself due to my job so this is why i do not know myself. I have the T/C Triumph and was wanting to know what the bullet drop is using 100 grains Pyrodex and a 250 shockwave. I have Nikon Omega scope with BDC and want to know what the BDC marks mean with my load above. I mean how to calibrate my load to the BDC.

If you got a T/C Triumph let me know what load is most accurate with yours. Even better if you shoot with my same set up what is the BDC drop points with your reticle.

thanks

And got the following answer:

I’m guessing BDC stands for something like “bullet drop compensation.”

Nikon has a PDF file on this website that explains everything:

http://www.nikonusa.com/fileuploads/pdfs/OMEGA_manual.pdf

Once you’ve sighted in the scope using your chosen load of powder and chosen projectile, the BDC should be fairly close if you get used to using it in the way the manual explains.

The accuracy of pretty much any rifle depends on the shooter more than the rifle; few shooters can outshoot their rifle.

redneck_cowboy_13 asked Best Muzzleloader Scope?

I’m looking for a GOOD muzzleloader scope to go on my TC Pro Hunter before season hits. What does everybody here reccomend or like? I don’t want to spend over $250 on one. And I know this is gonna be a alot of answers, I don’t realy like the Nikon Omega bdc 250 reticle, It looks like a good scope but for some reason i personally don’t like it because of the dots. Well any and all help is appreciated. BTW- I realy like Bushnell and Nikon scopes very well built and good.

Thanks in advance,
Luke

And got the following answer:

A GOOD scope for under $250 is going to be hard to find. I’m personally very partial to Leupold, but you won’t get one for under $250. To me, the clarity, the durability, the warranty, and the customer service make a Leupold worth the extra $100 or so. Nikon makes a good scope, as does Burris. I’ve owned 2 Bushnell scopes, and they were bad about fogging when I hunted in the rain. Look at a Leupold would be my advice.

KcT asked Nikon Omega Scope worth it?

Is this scope worth it for a muzzleloader season that’s only 2 weekends and one work week? I would have no need to shoot any more than 200 yards. I’d also need to get a rangefinder, but could use it during bow and rifle seasons. Thanks.
The scope would be an upgrade. I’ve got a cheapo on my muzzleloader now.

And got the following answer:

200 yd.s with a muzzleloader? … In your dreams.
The gun just isn’t that accurate.
Stick to under 100 yd.s.
Nikon makes good optics though.
