Re: use this scope on my striker?

Well, I just order the Burris 3-12. I see a lot of people shooting them so I guess I'll give it a try. I can always put the Nikon on my 22-250 788. That's what I bought it for in the first place. Hope I made the right decision.

Most muzzleloader scopes have the parallax set to 50 yards. One reason they designate them as "muzzleloader" scopes. Most that I'm familar with also don't have AO's either.

I'd say you made the right choice on the Burris 3x-12x until you are ready for a rifle scope. Even then, you may decide to leave the pistol scope on it.

I'd deffinatly take Ernie up on his offer and give him a call. The advice you get from him will be spot on!
