I got drawn for a limited weapon moose hunt this fall and need to get a rifled barrel for my 870 - I prefer it over a muzzle loader or bow.
I see that Mosberg makes some 870 barrels with a cantilevered scope mount that sell for around $175 or so. Remington made barrels are quite a bit higher. I like the scope idea for my tired old eyes.
What are the current thoughts as to my best path here as far as a barrel and ammo? Looks like things have came a long way since I was shooting rifled slugs in smooth barrels 40 years ago!
Thanks in advance for the input!
