I realize my topic was wordy, the issue is not up and down, but the wide right at 200 yds when being good at 100.

I am going to try the suggestions this weekend, please keep them coming.

I am thinking it was shooter error, and the BDC circles could make a big difference for left to right... As Encore said (thanks) I will use the crosshairs.

Thanks Again, Andy
I personally know two people that work as "pros" and work in large sporting goods stores and both are very knowledgable with both firearms and archery equipment. These two people actually try to stear people away from any type of multi retical scope, when they know its going on a muzzleloader. Will they sell you one? Certainly, you're the customer and the customer comes first. Both of these "pros", each say that 'the manufacturers have done a remarkable job at marketing this product for muzzleloader shooters.' Which by the way, is the fastest growing shooting sport.

I've seen and shot them, and really don't care for them at all. Myself, I prefer to shoot a duplex retical and learn where my bullets are going to hit for the ranges I feel comfortable hunting. One of the guys that shoots here, bought a Burris with the Ballistic Plex and wishes he'd bought a different scope. He stopped trying to use the "dots" and strictly shoots using the crosshairs. He does very well and forgets about the "dots".

Good luck shooting this weekend! Have fun and be safe! Don't get discouraged and it'll work out. Please..... repost how she shoots.

it sounds to me like the scope is canted to the right even though you say its on straight. its hard to get muzzel load scopes on straight because there no good place to put the level

Sorry, yes. Shot again, still right at 200 yds, on at 100 yds. Then shot from my backpack (trying to mimic like I may shot in the field) opened the groups some, but lessened the right variability. I am happy with the shooting... I'll find out very soon!!... trying to wrap up a work conference call then head to New Mexico (I am from AZ) for the hunt... hopefully I will have some pics to share!!

Thanks again for your help.

Andy

no luck this weekend, could not find any "big"bucks mostly small forks... I did take a couple of shots in the field to pass the time, hit a rock at 177 yds and another at 100 yds.... muzzleloader will get put away until next year.. which I am bummed about. I really wanted to poke at something.

Thanks for all the help!
