I would be interested in this subjuct too. I have a new area to hunt that is in a shotgun only county. The best bang for the buck. I have kids so they take most of my money..

Mossberg makes a model 835 that you can buy as a combo. You can get the 12 gauge with a regular barrel and a slug barrel that you can put a scope on.

I replaced my muzzleloader with a 20 ga. H&R Ultra Heavy Barrel this year and absolutely love it. I talked to a lot of hunters I knew prior to making the purchase, and that was the most recommended. Its a single shot w/scope mounted.

Single shot = TC or H&R
Bolts = Savage or if you can find a Browning Abolt.
If money is no object then a Tarhunt$$$

IMHO any modern fully rifled shotgun with good sabots will do the job. It all depends on how much you want to spend.
My Pump shotgun (aftermarket rifled barrel) shoots well out to 150y which is twice the distance I have ever had to shoot deer at.

+2 for Savage 220F 20 gauge.

I read that there were feeding issues when they first came out but that has been corrected.

Im going to throw in my vote for the 1187 remington. My family shoots the 1100's and I shoot the 1187 and as long as you want a semi auto, you shouldn't be disappointed. There a great gun and they'll go out to 125 yards with the right sabot and a fully rifled barrel.
