Default RE: Remy 870

Since your scope is mounted to your receiver, and not your barrel, you may not get better results with the scope than your rifle sights, because there can be some slop in the barrel mounting system. But then again, you may do well enough for your hunting situations. You really do need to try each combination and see for yourself. I've heard from a couple guys that they got the best results when the barrel screw was tightened with pliers (over a rag or towel to avoid scratches) to take as much of the play out of the system as possible. I can't recommend that you do that, but apparently it helped them.

For 50 yd shooting I would use foster styleslugs and the smoothbore slug barrel if you can shoot that well enough. 75 yds might be my max range with that setup.
