I bought a CVA Black Powder Mountain Rifle last summer. With it I bought a Nikon Inline XR 3x9x40. Any reason I couldnt mount the XR to my 45-70 Guide Gun? I have not shot the CVA yet and have the scope sitting around. I pulled the rail off my Rossi 410 and thought I would just mount all this on the GG to play with for a while. Is the XR gonna be off since its set up for Black Powder or will it be fine? It has a 300 yard BDC Retical and although that will probably be off I can check the Nikon site for the velositys Im shooting with the 405gr Remingtons to calculate bullet drop for the new BDC numbers. 100 to 150 yrds will be tops on distance shots.

Well looky there. Someone HAS done it before. Thanks Slamfire. The XR is going on the Guide Gun this week. I like it because its about an inch shorter than other 3x9s I have. I let you all know how it goes.
