Muzzleloader hunting gives the avid outdoorsman an incredible opportunity to hunt some of the best units, during the best seasons. Muzzleloader hunting has come a long way, offering the hunter the opportunity to shoot accurately at longer ranges. Nikon has taken the optics side a step farther by introducing the Inline XR Rifle Scope perfect for any muzzleloader.

A quick focus eyepiece allows the shooter to instantly bring the reticle into sharp focus. The generous eye relief of five inches on 3-power and four inches on 9-power helps keep your brow safe, even while shooting heavy recoil charges. Precise, hand turn ¼ MOA click adjustments, along with positive click adjustments allow you to adjust your Inline XR efficiently for proper accuracy. No tools needed.

The Nikon Inline XR features a bright multi-coated optical system, delivering vivid sight pictures and optimum light transmission, allowing you maximum brightness from dawn to dusk. The Inline XR is Nitrogen filled and O-ring sealed, making the scope waterproof, fog proof and shock proof, giving you complete confidence even under the toughest weather conditions.Nikon has even gone one step further with its patented BDC 300 reticle. The trajectory compensating reticle integrates unique, easy to see ballistic circles that provide instant aiming points, taking the guesswork out of longer-range shots. The open circle design offers you a great sight picture, making shots at any range easier for you to get on your target. Whether your game is up close and personal or standing at over 300 yards, you will appreciate the wide field of view and the ease of acquiring your target.

The Inline XR allows you to have the confidence in making that 300-yard shot by relying on the Spot On Ballistic Match Technology. This technology gives you the ability to take the guesswork out of compensating for bullet drop. You can also now download their free Spot On App for your IPhone or Android and take their technology with you. There, you will be able to load your data and atmospheric conditions and print off your information to take it to the range
With states like Utah, New Mexico, Arizona and more allowing the use of variable scopes on muzzle loaders, its about time you get in the game and pick one up today.
