According to Outdoor Life,the best hunting shotgun is the Remington Model 870. This is the most popular shotgun ever, with over 10 million of them sold. The reason for its reliability? The 870’s highly reliable pump action. Reliability is an important aspect of buying a new gun—you want to avoid having your gun jam when you are trying to fire.

Reviewers at The Truth About Guns agree with Outdoor Life, calling the Remington Model 870 the “iconic scattergun.”

The 870 Express Combo Package, reviewed by Outdoor Life, comes with two different barrels, a ventilated smooth rib barrel and a rifled slug barrel, to help give you the best opportunity to bag that next trophy buck with a shotgun.

Perhaps the best thing about the 870 is the price. For around $350, you can find the base model Remington 870, and a bump up to $600 gets you the express combo package, which includes a ventilated rib smooth barrel and a rifled slug barrel.

While many other shotguns can be had for more money – Benelli, Browning, and others– the Remington Model 870 is very reliable, and with 10 million sold, according to Outdoor Life, it is a great performer and a good bargain.

So if you’re looking for the best shotgun for hunting, don’t want to break the bank, and are ready to get into the hunting world, look no further than the Remington Model 870.
