  1. I just purchased this model, but have not had a chance to try it out yet (bow season in progress). Seems well built and not too expensive. It has a method to level a scope and a software program, that uses entered ballistics info, to set up targets, printed out on a printer. http://www.cabelas.com/product/Site-Lite-SL-100-Boresighter/734860.uts?Ntk=AllProducts&searchPath=%2Fcatalog%2Fsearch.cmd%3Fform_state%3DsearchForm%26N%3D0%26Ntk%3DAllProducts%26Ntt%3Dsl-100&Ntt=sl-100 http://sitelite-lasers.com/main.php
  2. Kudos to your son, for being that consistent, at 100 yds, using a bead sight. +1 to what tucker said. Sights or a scope.
  3. IN has a short gun season, so I decided to take up bow hunting, to get a jump on things. Still looking forward to pulling out the SN. Received as S-Lite laser boresighter for 20th wedding Anniversery. Can't to check out the SN scope setup.
  4. The scope is on sale. http://www.opticsplanet.net/nikon-1-65-5x36-slughunter-riflescope-matte-nikoplex-bdc200.html I don't have the camo scope. It did not really seem to matter anyway, since the Badger barrel is black. Thought about betting a camo scope and having the barrel camo coated. It seems the deer did not appear to mind how the gun was set up.
  5. i have not tried it, but I have heard that the shot pattern goes pretty erratic, when fired thorugh a rifled barrel. You could always go the the "dark side" and get a rifled barrel, from Badger Defense. I have one and it seems to function like a rifled shotgun barrel. The Badger, like many slugs barrels, has a "faster" rifling twist rate (theirs is 1:26) so the chance of lead fouling is higher. The owner of the Company said "don't use them" with lead slugs in their rifled barrel. His suggestion was to find an accurate sabot and stick with it. Since the whole idea of a rifled barrel anyway, is better accuracy at longer distance, it kind of defeats the purpose, to fire heavy lead slugs, rifled or smooth. If that is all that is available in the field, then it would probably make do.
  6. Awesome, IMO. I can see objects through the scope, that is too dark to see otherwise. This is my first slug scope, so I'd don't have other models to compare in real life. I wished I'd purchase the larger model though, as I'm doing quite a bit of shooting at distance, verses thick brush.
  7. It's a scope from Nikon, that is designed to be used with shotguns, usually with rifled barrels. Since heavy slugs, or sabots fired from shotguns, drop pretty quick over distance, this model has "bullet drop compensation" (BDC), which has little rings, visible below the cross-hairs, to put on the target at 100, 150 and 200yds. The slughunter also has 5" of eye releif to protect your face under heavy firing recoil. I have the newer 1.55x5x36, which is a great scope, but frankly, with my old eye sight, wished I had purchased the more powerful 3x9x40. http://www.nikonhunting.com/riflescopes-slughunter.html
  8. I have the Badger barrel in 12ga., with a Slughunter scope, on the cantilever scope mount. I'm not that great of a shot, but I took a doe at 85 yards and can get on target a 200yds. Paid about $175 picking it up in person, from Ernie's factory, in WI. These guys know gun barrels.
  9. I have the Badger in 12ga and love it. I don't believe they make a 20ga SN barrel. Maybe special order. http://badgerdefense.com/
  10. Seems a bit excessive. Maybe Benelli is hiring QC people away from Remington. My Supernova rattle seems to be more side-to-side. Can you get your hands on another new Nova, to compare? At $400, these are now the "cheap" guns. Get 'em out the door.
  11. No problems here. Camo is just paint, so if it's chipping, either it's getting solvent or oil(if it's near the muzzle), or it's just being banged around too much. If I get any chips, I'll just touch them up. It's camo, so who will know?
  12. Check you user's manual, but... Load, point and pull trigger should do it. Oh, don't forget to have fun.
