Nikon Slughunter Scope

Anyone use a Nikon Slughunter Scope, how accurate are they? I know each gun/bullet combo will be different, but are the circles close for the distances or did you have to experiment and find what yardage they actually were on? I'm thinking of a 12 gauge mossberg 500 with a fully rifle barrel and hope to use Federal Premium Barnes Expander Tipped Slugs if they shoot decent out of the gun.

You can't bag a big one if your not out tryin

Unless you are going to spend a lot of time at the range to learn to use it effectively...you are far better off spending the money on better optics than an otherwise gimmicky reticle.

Re: Nikon Slughunter Scope

Good scope works as described sight it in at 50 the reticles are on at least with 2 3/4 lightfield hybrids out of a Savage 210 there's no time inolved other than sighting the gun in and leaving it at 9 power, when you change the power it effects the accuracy of the circles not the middle crosshair. If you use other loads I don't know but out to 200 yards it's deadly using this combo.
