Hi All:
I run a knight disc extreem with 150 gr and shockwave 250's hits and kicks like a sledgehammer.
I need to upgrade my optics. At 45 years old I am noticing some early morning and late evening low light sight problems.(tired of hearing KABOOM when I am still squinting to see trees)
I have looked at about every scope on the market but cant get the combination of at least 4"eye releif and 25-30 yard field of view at 100 yards in a burris wich seems to be the brightest scope I have looked through.Anybody out there had expierience with the nikon omega or other good scope and can tell me who has the better light gathering capabilities with the options I want????
Lookin at cars go by out the gun shop window is gettin me nowhere.

I had a burris scope when I purchased my current muzzleloader. I had a problem with the scope giving a "fuzzy" picture when zoomed in past 4power (3-9x40). I sent the scope to burris for repair and they did a "hack" job. The scope was still fuzzy and now you could see glue from them pieceing the scope back together.

I was able to work a deal at the retailer where I purchased the burris scope and purchased a Nikon Omega as a replacement. I am extremely happy with that decision. The scope is clear no matter how far I zoom in and the BDC reticle works better than the burris model did.

I am unsure about the specifications you are wanting at this moment, my manuals are in the safe. But I think you would be happier with a Nikon.

I have a Nikon ProStaff 3x9-40 on a Remington 742 .30-06 & it works great.
Bought a Nikon Buckmasters 3x9-40 w/BDC off of eBay for $165.00 NEW & put it on my m/l.  I'm EXTREMELY pleased with everything about it.  I also have a Zeiss Conquest 3.5x10-42 ($599.99) on my .25-06 & the quality & clarity is unparalleled. 
The Zeiss is a remarkable scope BUT it isn't 3x's (price vs quality) better than the Nikon Buckmasters
Never owned a Burris so don't have an opinion on them. However, we all know you can get good & bad in ANY brand.
Just my 2¢!

Thanks all for the input.Yea the omega seems to be winning in my mind also. As for the specs yea you can get the eye relief and field of view in the omega i was wanting.

I have a Nikon Prostaff 3-9x40 on my muzzleloader and it works great, very clear and is bright, and it holds its zero. Give it a look. Try to go to a shop and look through one in a low light surrounding and compare them that way.

I'm with poggy, I purchased a Nicon Omega for use on my T/C Omega i feel that this scope is by far the best that i have owned, it has great light gathering capability, is very clear and the BDC works as advertized.
wake me up early, be good to my dogs and teach my children to pray.

Hey doeslayer, I just bought an Omega (have a Nikon Omega scope to put on it).  What load (powder, bullet, etc)are you shooting in yours?
