I have been researching for a scope but lots of people seem to think that scopes don't work on shotguns because of to much kick, do you have a link for yours?

Rifles barrel and sabotted bullets?

More curious than anything. IIRC the ballistics on the federal truball (which I use, the 1oz 1600fps ones) if zeroed for 100yds it has dropped something like 3” at 125 and 7” by 150. At 200 it’s dropped like 20+” and is only moving at like 1000fps.

Sabotted bullets on the other hand zeroed for 100 might only drop 4-5” at 200 and still be >1500fps.

I don't have quick access to it to get specifics, but it is a fairly inexpensive rifle scope on a side mount. Take out the pins that hold the trigger group and replace them with the bolts for the mount. The mount takes standard rings. It doesn't get much abuse, usually about two to three boxes of Remington 1oz. Sluggers a year, but I've never had any issues due to recoil. Check it over good, make sure the hardware is tight, throw a box down range to make sure it's holding minute of pie plate @ 100 yds......

I know they make "shotgun" scopes, but that wasn't a thing when I switched this gun over to a slug barrel. I've had my Browning Special Sporting Clays for 30 years....and this gun went to slugs way before that.

Montgomery Ward Westernfield Pump (Mossberg 500 clone)

Mossberg smoothbore 24" barrel.

Remington 1oz. sluggers

Those ballistics sound about right.... took a box or two to get back on the pie plate at 200, but they still held a good group. But, I would NEVER try a deer over 100.

For shotguns scopes I've had success with leopold's vxI, vxII, vxIII, vx-r, vortex diamondback, Nikon slughunter, even a cheapy simmons pro-diamond.

A little hard to come across now, but you can sometimes find them out of state in a used gun rack, the H&R ultra slug heavy barrel in 20 or 12, shooting sabot rounds. I also use an Ithaca Deerslayer 3 heavy barrel in 20 gauge. One of my favorite shotguns. It has a Leupold mounted to the receiver. I have dropped deer at 140 with that gun, but ya know, we cant use rifles.

Yup they are perfectly fine right now. I've hunted this property since the early 2000's. We get the permits earlier in the year but don't start till around now so the little ones have a chance.
