Ok here's the deal, we finally got state wide rifle for deer hunting, my area has always been melon lobber area. I have a Savage model 11 in 308 win. it has a Bushnell plain 3x9x40 scope on it and my 870 12ga has a Nikon Prostaff shotgun slug 2x7x32 with a BDC 4dot reticle. I went on Nikons web sight on their spot on ballistic match and put in the caliber make of bullet and grains and it showed me what the ballistics were on it for each of the 4 rings zeroed at 100. I liked the scope but don't need it on the shotgun anymore since the shotgun would only be used in thick cover and scope's are no good. It should take the shock cause the 12ga slug shoots harder than the 308 maybe wrong but that's why I would like to hear some input.
