Sight in at 20 yards.Limit your shots at 20 you will be okay.Archery is a close up sport anyhow.The gun sights will not hold true with a crossbow.A crossbow drops like a rock.A compound will retain energy and speed much further.It all comes down to arrow design.A crossbow has to shoot a heavy arrow to avoid a dry fire.A compound does not have that issue.Back in the day I thought 50% let off was kinda cool.Now they have bows far exceeding that.80-90%.Bows are much shorter now,actually smaller than my Excaliber Exocet.Anyhow a gun scope will not function on a crossbow the same as a gun.If you really want to hunt with a crosbow you need a crosbow scope or limit to 20 yards.I personally don't go past that anyhow.

Thier website says it's good for crossbows. You should be ok with that one as far as the negative recoil of a crossbow. Let us know how it works out.

As Arrowhead said, its good according to the manufacturer on crossbows. Mueller has a following here but I don't have any experience with them. Good luck and lets us know how it works out if you go that route.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!

Thanks for the input, but not sure of your point here.
