I have the 880SQ and use it for squirrel hunting, the 7000 is the auto version if ya arre into the rapid fire thing. and the 980 is the New version of the 880. All will shoot better off hand than I can hold and I can hit 4 out of 5 spinner targets at 50 most every time.
Please tell me you really meant 100 yards and NOT 100 ft when you mentioned the bullet drop of 8". I am also interested about the drop differences between the bolt action and the semi-auto. Please elaborate on this.
