t’s my understanding that Meopta is making a scope that’s basically identical to the old Conquests.
Yes, i have the one sold by Cabela's. It replaced an old Redfield on a Remington 700 in .30-06 caliber. The scope has excellent clarity. Set on 6X the .30 caliber bullet holes show very clearly at 125 yards.

Thanks you all for the insight. I’m going rummage through the box of misc scope mounts/rings and see if I have some rings that fit the leupold.

The only time I banged an eyebrow with the scope was sighting in on a bench. I never do it when shooting offhand.

So, be careful when using a rest if the scope doesn't have a good eye relief. I think the scope that banged me only had 3".

I did get it off TBH. Gave it a good cleaning and it shots good.

I put the 4x12 leupold on it and spent yesterday at the range. Have it pretty dead on at 100 yards. Going to continue to hone it in.

You beat me by minutes.... I ended up picking up a CVA Omega V2 from a pawnshop right down the street. Whats the chances they were the only PS within 25 miles that had a BP rifle..

They were asking 250.00 but i walked out with it for 200.00 tax included

I'm BillyBa on TBH

What powder/bullet setup you shooting?

That sounds like you got a deal too.
Not many BP rifles on the gulf coast.
I bought 7 or 8 different bullets. Right now it’s sighted in with 290gr Barnes T-EZ flat base with 100gr of FFG 777. Still going to play with it and weigh out some charges and get it shooting as good as it and I can.
I’ve a novice but I’m hooked on muzzleloaders like my brother, he’s more of a traditional black powder guy.
Just ordered more T-EZ 290 and another 275 gr brand.

I was looking at CVA rifles tonight on the Internweb. The look like fine rifles. Have a break open and easy to unscrew breach plug look like a plus. I got 24 shots off yesterday before breach plug fouled and wouldn’t ignite. Going to clean it well tomorrow. Had a steroid injection on my back today so no playing with rifles, even though I felt fine after 6 hours.

With my LHR Redemption I'm shooting 240 gr. Barnes TEZ with 100 gr by volume BH209. I started the CVA on Hornady 45 cal XTP (cause I had them laying around) and 2 pellets white hots. 3 shots almost touching at 100. killed 2 does same weekend, 2 different shooters. Never got to shoot the LHR. Just ordered and received 100 Hornady XTPs and Harvester Sabots from Harvester. They had a special on them for 22.95 (supposed to be tarnished) They sent me some samples of their 260 PT bullet. If you need any help feel free to text me 832-364-8519 I'm in the Jersey Village area 290 and FM1960

I have a Zeiss Conquest 3-9 on my TC as well. Took a dandy 10 point at 80 yards in the woods in low light in 2019. The scope lit him up like a Milwaukee saloon.

If you’re interested in a Conquest just watch the classifieds in both the 24hourcampfire and Rokslide forums, one usually pops up on occasions. Good luck.
