Muzzleloading hunters now demand more from their rifles and loads than ever
before, and here is a scope designed and built to fully tap all of that
performance. The new Leatherwood / Hi-Lux "HIGH PERFORMANCE MUZZLELOADING"
(HPML) scope is the idea of today's leading modern in-line muzzleloading rifle
authority - Toby Bridges.
In addition to the primary crosshair, the
3-9x40mm HPML scope features three, lower short crosshairs that provide reticles
for shooting at longer ranges. The positions of these additional reticles were
determined by thousands of rounds fired with today's more popular sabot
muzzleloading bullets at a wide range of velocities. All Terrain Riflescopes
(ATR) are nitrogen filled...fogproof...shockproof...recoilproof...and pretty
much fool proof. If you can stand it, an ATR scope can stand it - and more.
Features include fully multi-coated lenses for the brightest and sharpest sight
picture possible. The quick focus eye-piece allows easy multi-shooter use; and
all scopes are covered by a Limited Lifetime Warranty. The target below
was shot at 50 yards using the Extreme Elite .40 250; 110 grains Blackhorn
209 powder and the TC Large
Rifle Primer system. Without changing
anything the gun was zeroed at 200 yards using the 200 yard cross hair.
Talk about easy to set up for zero to 250 yard shots!
With a high ballistic coefficient 240-260 grain polymer tipped spire-point
bullet, shot at 1,950 to 2,000 fps, this scope can be sighted "on" at 100 yards,
and the lower crossbars will point the load "on" at 200, 225 and 250 yards. Each
HPML scope will be shipped with a chart that provides points of impact for other
popular loads and bullets. This scope is available in
black matte or silver finishes. Both come with Flip
Open Lens Covers

The new Leatherwood HPML scope is built with much of the same internal
construction found in the military ART (Auto Ranging & Trajectory) scope
designs by Jim Leatherwood. These are battle proven rifle optics built to take
on the toughest conditions. The HPML scope just may be the most solidly built
scope you'll ever own. One thing is for certain, the recoil of even the heaviest
muzzle-loaded powder charges won't affect the precision sighting and alignment
of this scope.
