hi there, i'm new here and i've been reading some of the post. sofar, some really great info.
would like some help on your take on this scope. no night hunting but mostly in thick woods. the lighting in this condition isn't the best since in the field i can still shoot but not in the woods. the max yardage that i will be making any shot would be about 150yds. it will be place on a 20 gaug slug gun. any help would be great

That's an expensive slug gun scope but, on the other hand it's ideal for your type hunting.

I use 1.5-6x42s on my woods guns and muzzleloaders.  Great the range your talking about.  Just be sure to look at the reticle in the thick woods to make sure you can see it as you get close to dusk.

thanks for the help guys.
 
brodeur272, are you using the nikon scope or a different brand? if its the nikon unit, hows the glass on that scope? there's other make but the price it pretty high.  i really don't like the reticle on the nikons b/c it looks like brown and not black.
 
i'm also open to any other brand or size that would fit my condition.
 
again, thanks for the help

How about a fixed power like the Conquest 4 X 32? It's nifty.

Maybe some thing with a circle/crosshairs reticle would be good.  Fast target acquisition and you can throw on a smooth barrel for birds, squirrels, etc.
 
The cheap Mueller Multi-Shot has great feedback and illumination if you want to use it.  For $250 the Viper 2-7x32 a higher level and the Versa-Plex C3 looks like an awesome reticle for your range also.
 
I wouldn't personally get a $500 scope for a slug-gun.  I can easily spot a cat 80 yards away at night time with my $50 Vortex Solo monocular with chinese glass and a 3.125 exit pupil
 
Good luck with finding the right one.
