Only issue may be the parallax setting.   Its minor but may be enough to aggravate you

This scope and reticle combination is a great choice. It has a steel tube and is a bit heavier than aluminum scopes. The extra oz's don't amount to much on a slug gun, though.
Parallax on all of my fixed 4X scopes is a non-issue for all hunting conditions.

Having hunted in shotgun only areas for many years, my preference is for a low power varible or a straight power 1.5x or 2.5x scope.
I understand that slugs and slug guns have come a long way in the past twenty years or so, but the 'cover' and conditions haven't changed much. To me, FOV is  a primary concern.
Personally, I'm more than a little dismayed that quality 2.5x scopes have been pretty much abandoned by the manufacturers.

This is what i consider to be an optimum slug gun scope: -

Leupold still makes 2.5's and the recently reintroduced 3XBandito
The IOR has some fans around here. I have not heard anything negative on it.
