Hi, I just found this awesome site and need some help. I just purchased a TC Encore in 7mm with an extra 20ga rifled slug barrel. I deer hunt in Iowa and am planning an elk hunt in Idaho. I want to select one scope to put in a set of Warne QD rings that I can switch back and forth. Several scopes have caught my fancy, but I want to get some opinions from you folks with much more experience than myself. Here are the scopes that have caught my attention and that all fall within my $300 budget. Weaver Grand Slam 3x10-40, Nikon Monark 3x9-40, Burris Fullfield II 3x9-40, and the Burris Short Mag 3x9-32. What do you folks think is the best scope for the job? Also, where does the Burris Short Mag fall in their line up as far as quality goes? Is it more like a Fullfield or a signature Select? 

 

Just so you know, I am not a stranger to long range slug guns, as my Browning BPS with cantilever rifled barrel and a Bausch & Lomb 3000 2x7-32 will shoot 3" groups at 100 yards with Winchester Partition Golds. This Encore 20ga is going to be the gun I take when I sit my stand on a field edge where a 200 yard shot is a possibility.

The Weaver Grand Slam might be the one scope that you will wind up switching between the 20ga. and the 7mm Remington for all of your hunting. They have very repeatable adjustments and nice glass. For around 250 bucks, I think you would be hard pressed to make a better all around choice. For 300lb deer, 10x will be all you need.  Good luck.
