I took the BSA reddot off the 835 and put it on the 500 slugster for my son Conner, and we zeroed it in Sat. As far as shotguns go, its a real tackdriver at 100 yds. Tacks about the size of pot pies. I'm shooting a 50 cal. Winchester in line and its good to 200, at least thats as far as I've shot it at the range, so thats as far as I'll shoot it in the feild. Iwas fortunate in bow season and scored a nice 125+ heavy buck that dressed at 235 lbs. I've been hunting two particular bucks since one of them is about 170" and the other is close to 150". I got to within 30 yds. but light had faded so no oppurtunity. I"ve seen a lot of does since but not a single buck, and I got 2 sizable ares. WE have had some high winds for the last week and very warm weather the week before that, so I'm hoping thats what has been keeping the bucks down. This morning was 27 would've been a good morning to be in the stand but I was there yesterday, so I thoughtn I would let it set for a couple days. The firearms opens on the 15th and maybe I'll let em all simmer till then, as I got a guest coming in for the opener as well as my son. Goota get back to the box calls, later!
GOOD LUCK, GOD BLESS, AND STAY SAFE!
