Need a good Slug Gun Scope Rec

Looking to spend between $150-210. It's for a Rem 870 Fully Rifled Cantilever Barrel. I want it to be sturdy so it can handle 3 inch sabots and not worry about getting damaged or losing zero. I'd prefer to spend a little less so I can have money left for rings and slugs.

Luckily I also have a C&R so I can get dealer placing at a lot of places, so feel free to recommend around or a little above the limit given. I'm tempted by the Slughunter by Nikon but its out of stock at a lot of places. I've also been told the Leupold VX1 Shotgun series isn't the quality you'd expect with Leupold or for the price paid.

Re: Need a good Slug Gun Scope Rec

go with the nikon slug hunter. i have a nikon monarch on my browning a-bolt slug hunter and have had no problems shooting 3 inch remmy accutips. dont go to a cheaper scope, you will just pay for it in the long run.

That's kind of my thought too, what power do you recommend the 1.5 or 3 power one?

I've had very good luck with Bushnell 1.5X - 4.5X scope. On eBay they sell for less than $75.
