i have a rem 870 with a riffled barrel should i add a scope and with a scope how far will it shoot a tight group , we have a local gunsmith that is said to be very good , just dont know what to expect.
there are prob better guns out there , that was what i could afford and really the only thing my local store had at the time , i am short on patience , i used a walmart 12 gauge my first two years , last year when out in the woods i noticed my choke had fallen out so with only one weekend left my local guy let me trade my gun and make payments while i used the gun , did not get a shot but who knew , this year same dealer i just got my first muzzel loader and had a scope installed and sighted in , should i even put a scope on it with a tall mount so i can use the sights or what , i am still learning a lot so very open to suggestions.
I have a question.Why don't you use your muzzleloader during gun season?You can't use a center fire rifle in Iowa,right?All I'm saying is that my muzzleloader is far more accurate then my slug gun and more accurate at further distances.Just a thought.
i have thought of that but i was told that with the right bullet and a scope this gun would shoot up to 150 , i would rather have a shotgun with three shots rather than having to reload in the stand or woods in crappy weather.
