Do you need a special scope for a crossbow?
You could use a rifle scope for your crossbow, but we always recommend getting a scope that is designed and built for the crossbow. This way you will improve your weapon's usability and effectiveness.
What are the lines on the TenPoint crossbow scope?
Tenpoint Multiline Scopes has three lines, the first (top) line is 20 yards, the next one is around 30-yards, and the third line is approximately 40 yards.
What is the best scope for a TenPoint crossbow?
Hands down the Evo-X Marksman Elite is the best. You can use this scope if you want on the different crossbows. The speed and arrow drop-compensation setting set for crossbows can shoot between 300 and 500 FPS, which are the most these days.
What is the difference between a crossbow scope and a rifle scope?
The main difference is the distance. Crossbow scope is designed for shorter distances of 10-100 yards and rifle scopes are made for ranges of 100 years and more. With a rifle, you will be going after targets that are way far away.
Can you put a red dot scope on a crossbow?
When shooting your crossbow at close or medium ranges, a red dot sight is an awesome option. It is very popular among crossbow hunters. Especially if it is a three-red dot scope. The major edge over one dot is that it gives you three separate distances sighted in by only sighting on the central red dot. Another great thing regarding adjustments is that red dot scopes have both vertical and horizontal dials.
