Rifle scope for Shotgun?

I recently picked up a H&R 12 ga ultra slug gun and wanted to know if I could use a Redfield Revolution 3x9x 40. What is the difference between rifle and shotgun scopes?

The thing you need to be concerned about is eye relief. A shotgun scope generally has a lot of it and some rifle scopes don't have much. I would look at the eye-relief of the redfield before I bought it to put on a slug-gun. Scope cuts hurt !!
