1. How do you sight in a mil dot / turret scope?
2. How long is a mil at 4x considering most mil dot scopes are 10x+?
3. Can the truglo scope handle slug recoil?
4. Im not going to shoot farther than 200 yards ; how far should I sight in at to get the most use out of the reticule (I have a laser rangefinder)?
5. Which scope would be better for slugs : the truglo mil dot scope or the tasco 3-9x mil-dot scope?
Okay first a little information that will help you better understand MILs versus MOA
Now that you've got that under your belt I'm going to bring up just ONE point in scope selection. Reticle & turret graduations and having them match. I'm sure after watching these two videos you can see the potential for a LOT of math when using a scope with a mildot reticle with MOA turrets which seems to be the case with the Truglo you mention. I really don't recommend the mismatch. If you are going to buy a mildot reticle scope I would suggest you chose one with mil graduated turrets.
As to how to fit and sight in a scope here are a couple more videos that contain some good information on the subject.
Hope this helpsEDIT:
Just an FYI all fixed power scope by definition are FFP
