I have to vote for the Mossberg 500 as well. Never owned an 870 but my brother does and he loves it. With Hornady SSTs and my Mossberg 500 you can shoot out to 200 yards. On the box they actually zero it at 150.

Have you actually shot it at 200 yards, or are you just going by the ballistics and what the box says. I have not talked to many poeple that get any where near the accuracy at those distances you would need to hunt, let alone sight one in.

If yours does indeed shoot that well me and others would be happy to hear it.

Last fall I purchased a Remington 870 Express Magnum combo from Gander Mountain. Package included a 28” smooth bore barrel and a 23” rifled barrel with a cantilever scope mount. I mounted a Nikon Pro-Staff 2-7x 32mm shotgun scope on the slug barrel. I have been extremely happy with the whole package included scope. Shoots2 3/4" - 3 1/2"inch shells. Slug barrel is very accurate. I shot this doe through the heart at 110 yards with a Hornady SST. See attached photo.

bigtim6656; Cost on the Rem Express Mag Combo was around $450, before a Rem $30 rebate.
Scope was $129.

Remington has a rebate program going on right now.

Yes, lots of blaze orange. Minnesota law requires it from the waist up. I choose to wear the full body becaues we have had some idiots in the past wonder onto our property while hunting, and I that does make me nervous.
