I am thinking about getting a remington 1100 cantilever rifled barrel gun for deer hunting next season. anybody have thoughts about this gun ??? what would be a good scope to put on it ?? any thought about the red dot scopes out there ??? what sabot shells might work the best in it ??? :confused: :confused: :confused:

an excellent choice. i bought my brother one for X-mas a few years back. he loves it. i forget what scope i had put on the gun but i know it was a simple 4X power- bushnell maybe, around 80 bucks. as for sabots he shoots the remington copper 2 3/4 in. tight groups out to 100yds. gun has never failed him. buy it!

The 1100 hundred is a great gun. As far as the scope, my dad has a 3-9x40 on his 870 and he likes it but you could always just use a straight 4x. Its very rare that you get a shot past 70 yrds where I hunt, so the 3-9 isnt neccessary but it is nice to crank it up a little when the deer is at 60yrds.

That scope should do a real good job. Leupold is a good scope. As far as the sabots go, you just need to buy a few boxes of each and shoot them and see which ones the gun seems to like best.

Anyone who knows me knows that Im a huge Remington fan. I have the 1100 .410 and a Wingmaster 12 ga. They are awesome guns. Leupold makes great scopes and you will be glad you went with a better scope for the lenses and they are better optics than most. :) Have fun with the gun. lol if you dont like it sell it to me ;) Just kiddin

Hey scrooge, congradulations on the new gun. ya cant go wrong with an 1100. I'm willing to bet the remmy coppers will shoot best. I've tried all brands of sabots at the shooting bench with my brothers 1100 and theres no comparison. Let us know how you pattern out.
