ejonsie23 asked Looking for a decent scope for my shotgun?

Going deer hunting for the first time next month, and need to get a scope for my Moss 500A. Ive never purchased a scope before and really dont have any idea what to look for and what would be practical for slugs. Any help? Thanks.

And got the following answer:

If you want a scope for a shotgun make sure its a shotgun scope….. Shotgun scopes have a longer eye relief on them so the shotguns recoil wont cause the scope to blast you in the face……

This is the exact model I have on my Mossberg 500 Slug / deer gun…..

Its a Nikon 2-7x32MM ProStaff…..×32.html

Dont let the price fool you… The quality is excellent and it is decently accurate to 125 yards….. This of course is not a long range scope but for shotgun slugs its perfect……..

Comprareljeremy asked How do i know what a Decent Scope would be for my shotgun?

I currently own a Savage Arms Series 67 E 12 Gauge Shotgun. I’m not sure what type of scope i should purchase. I currently only have open sites. Any ideas?

And got the following answer:

In lower Michigan you can only deer hunt with a shotgun or Muzzleloader. On my 12 GA I have a Bushnell Shotgun scope. It is a 2x7x32. The top brands for scopes are Nikon, Bushnell, Leupold. I have used Tasco in the past and I haven’t been too disappointed, but you get what you pay for. Make sure it has 4 to 5 in eye relief or you’ll catch the scope in the nose. If you want the scope on a bird barrel, don’t do it. You will lose sight of what your hunting and miss a lot of shots.

blah 47 asked What kind of sights do I use for shotguns on deer?

Should I use the standard bead sight? Attach a scope or rear sight? There are so many options and I’d like opinions of experienced hunters. Thanks!

And got the following answer:

A good quality scope does make a difference, Nikon and Leupold both make excellent shotgun scopes for about $250-$300 range, if that’s too much $$ just continue to use iron sights until you can afford one,a cheap scope is just a waste of hard earned cash that could be spent elsewhere.

Joseph asked What would be a good scope for my intentions?

I want to get into precision shooting. Just starting out. I’m not new at shooting all together just precision shooting. I shoot handguns, shotguns and my 2 AR’s often. I recently purchased a Remington 700 AAC-SD to start with. I done alot of reviewing online and purchased a Harris bipod, Weaver rail and Weaver 3 hole scope mounts. All I need now is a 30mm scope, whcih new mounts wouldnt be a problem. I’m looking into the Vortex Viper mil-dot scope and currently reviewing the Millet LRS-1. If I had a better rifle I’d just say screw it and get a Leupold MK4, which is under consideration still. But what would be a good mil-dot paralax scope for what I want to do for a good price?

And got the following answer:

I got to use a friend’s rifle a few weeks ago. It had a Nikon Prostaff 4-12X on it. It’s a fairly inexpensive scope, but the optics were very bright and clear. It seemed like a really high quality piece. Since you’re just starting, and you’re on a budget, it would be a good starting point. With that combination, it will take a lot of time before the rifle/scope combination is the limiting factor in your shooting. The next thing to do is work on load development. Reloading and precision shooting go hand-in-hand. Though most of my “precision” shooting is at 100 yards, it’s still a lot of fun for me to work up a load and compare it to the performance of others I’ve tried. This weekend I tested a few combinations and out of the exact same gun the groups ranged from 2″ down to just under .5″. The right load makes a huge difference.

bassslaying asked whats the dirt on a nikon slughunter scope?

just trying to see if anyone has one or had one and can give me some insight before i purchase it?

And got the following answer:

I use a 3 x 9 Nikon Prostaff on my Browning BPS and it is a very accurate combination. I love the Nikon

My wife has a Nikon 4 x 7 slughunter or deer hunter Nikon and she also swears by it.

You can not go wrong with a Nikon on your shotgun.

Cle asked How to prevent 12 gauge shotgun scope from hitting forehead?

Yesterday, I fired 14 shots with a Mossberg 12 gauge shotgun with 3 1/2 inch shells. The recoil was insane. On two of the shots, I had the full picture of the scope, the gun was tightly in my shoulder, and then I fired and the scope hit me lightly on the forehead, but enough so that I felt it. I don’t understand. I was doing everything right so that the scope wouldn’t hit me, but for those two shots, it did anyway. Do you think my eye was too close to the scope, because I saw the full picture? Any tips on preventing that from happening, because turkey season starts Saturday, and if I get a shot, I don’t want to be afraid to release because of anticipating being hit by the scope? No rude answers, please.

And got the following answer:

As another pointed out you need a scope with a longer eye relief….. Is your current scope a rifle scope or a shotgun scope?…. If its a rifle scope then there is your problem…. Your face / eye has to be closer in order to get a good sight picture – which means the scope is going to smack you in the face……

Look at the Nikon slug hunter…. Even though its for slugs it will work fine for turkey and other types of shot…….

Take a look…..

Jefferson1775 asked What scope would you recommend for a Marlin 336?

I want to buy a Marlin 336 in .35 Rem for deer hunting, but I don’t know which scope to get for it. Most of the deer that I’ve shot over the years have been within 100 yards, so it doesn’t need to be very powerful, and I don’t want to spend more than a few hundred dollars.

And got the following answer:

Consider the Nikon 2-7x32MM scope….×32.html

Few hundred dollars?… It is not necessary to spend that kind of cash for a decent scope… I have several Nikon scopes and they all have been a pleasure to use… I have one of these Nikon Prostaff 2-7x32MM scopes on one of my shotguns and I feel its an excellent choice for under 100 yards shots….

But I suppose if you want to spend more money then surely look at the Leupold… These are fine fine product also….

masteroftech asked cheap shotgun scope for 870 express magnum 20 gauge?

I’ve got a Remington 870 Express magnum 20 gauge and i need a dirt cheap scope that works well and doesn’t need to be re-sighted after every shot, any recommendations? Also where can i get mounts that will work, i don’t know much about scopes in general.

And got the following answer:

Dirt Cheap?……. Cheap will be such a disappointment for you……

Consider a Nikon Shotgun Scope…… These are on sale here for only $117 – shipping included!…..×32.html

This is a very decent scope for the money…. anything less will be unreliable and a let down……..

Fox asked Is this a good Shotgun scope for slug hunting?

Hello, Is a 2-7X32 Nikon Prostaff a good scope for deer hunting with a 12gauge Mossberg 500 with a fully rifled slug barrel? Will this scope hold up to the recoil? Is it too much power for slug hunting? Is there any better scopes for around $150?

I know I don’t need a scope for deer hunting, but I want and prefer using a scope!


And got the following answer:

I own 2 of those exact same scopes…. Mine are 2 years old and they have performed well…. 1 is on a Mossberg 500 12 gauge slug gun and the other is on my Ruger Mini 30…..×32.html

Pay no mind to anyone that says this isn’t powerful enough….. The 2-7×32 in my opinion is just right.. It does not see beyond the capabilities of the shotgun and is perfectly matched for a 12 gauge slug gun…..
