i was just wondering what power scope people have on their slug guns and what you think is the best.
i have a 4x on mine but am thinking of going with a 3-9x. Thank you in advance.

Bought a camo Mossberg 835 with rifled barrel about 15 yrs ago. Put a camo Redfield 1-4x scope on it. Nice looking rig. Then moved out of the SE shotgun area. had no need of it and put it away. Guess I should sell it.

Most of your shots will be around 50 yards, some less. For that, I keep it on 1 or 2 power. If a deer is close, you do not want a higher scope power - you could have difficulty finding the target, especially if he is running.

I was looking around and this one you suggested had caught my eye. I have some christmas cabela's card money and cash so we are heading to cabela's tomorrow. I will definitly check this one out and see what else they have. Thanks for the suggestion.

Try the Nikon 4x40 Buckmaster. It really fits the bill for me on my 1100 slug gun. Adequate eye relief ( 3.7) and a wide field of view. I hunt the thick woods of SE Virginia both still hunt and stand hunt and this scope is just about perfect.

I just put a Simmons 3x9 on my Mossberg 500
No need to spend the extra $$$$ on a "shotgun" scope
Don't kick any harder than my 30-30

I had one of these on my Mossberg 695 and it didn't really hold up too well. Cross hairs kept floating out of zero.
