Hi

That depends on you and your style of hunting. If knowing the specific range is helpful for your situation, then, yes, it is worth the cost. Only you can answer that.

Hi

True, you don't really need a rangefinder for shotgun hunting because ranges are typically short, but a rangefinder can still tell you when a shot is too far to take safely.

Modern in-line muzzleloaders are closer in performance to some ceneterfire cartidges than to a traditional muzzloader, however. Ranges can potentially be much greater than for shotgun hunting. Here a rangefinder can provide valuable input as to hold over needed.
