Burris Fastfire 3 dot size for shotgun???
As above what would you recomend, bigger or smaller?. I cant really try before I buy. I know I can get the 8MOA one posted over here to Britain, what would this be like for all round use with slugs, buckshot, and birdshot?.

It will be for use on a Mossberg 930, Turkey spec model. Thanks

Well I couldn’t resist and went with the 8MOA, my reasoning being that its the easiest to get hold of, and for the range I will be shooting at a small precise dot is not essential and a larger more pronounced one would probably be more desirable?.

Thoughts still appreciated…

Smaller dot tighter poa. That said with a slug I'm sure you'll be fine. Just was trying to keep your question fresh to get you an answer. Ah well

Yes that was nice of you, thanks:). I also figured the 3MOA was probably more directed at rifle use?.

Also if anyone is interested then I will refer back with my findings in the next couple of weeks?.

I'd be interested. Since nobody else answered in any way it should be a learning experience for a lot of us.

Ok, will do!.

Recieved!. Dot looks like it will be great upto 100Y for a shotgun. You could try it at 200Y on a man size target but 8MOA would certainly not be ideal. Might put pics of the unit up and give some first impressions, I wont have the 930 that I'm putting it on until the end of next week however.

Contents, also inside the manual is the warranty info slip.

Couldnt get over how compact the sight is!, I put it next to my 7" Extrema for a size comparison.

I didnt realise it included the cover, its only plastic but that's probably a good thing as it might not transfer so much force to the sight if it gets hit.

I tried taking pics of the dot but the camera dosent capture the true size or brightness.

I'm going to bump this thread, but I'm wondering what would a Vortex Strikefire be like on a Mossberg 930 field/security combo?
