None. A fixed power 2x or 4x or a low variable power 2x-7x scope works best on any slug gun or muzzleloader.

IMHO~~ A fixed power scope a 2.5,3.5,or 6 power are
mutch better then a 1 power red dot.

Burris makes a very good red dot system. I have one on a handgun and it works very well. About $200.00.

Avoid red dots, the batteries usually go dead when you need them the most (like when that monster 15 point four and a half year old is standing 40 yards away). Either that or the lighting will make the dot difficult to see. Go with a scope or fiber optic sites. Good luck!

Have taken the Eotech off one of my AR's and tried it on my turkey gun. It works OK, but is bulky and I'm pretty sure I prefer the fiber optic open sights it had on it to start with. Would love an Aimpoint micro, but like woodsmanj35 said, spendy.

I have used a Bushnell Trophy 1.75-4 regular magnification scope and have been very impressed with its performance. Something like that is what I recommend, but I would go with an Aimpoint if you want to use red dot.
