Question

Is the BDC accurate at any magnification?

answer 1
No. The BDC system is on the second focal plane which means it appears to stay the same size as you zoom in and out. "Drops" will only be correct at one magnification, which will be at or near maximum magnification.

I'd be mounting it to a Mossberg 535 Turkey/Deer combo. I have a picatinny rail I just bought for it. Are mounting rings all I will need now?

answer 2
It depends on what you are mounting it on. There are scope bases available for most shotguns, and some like the Mossberg Trophy Slugster have an integral base. Without knowing what you have for a shotgun it's impossible to get more specific.

While Nikon does not manufacture rings and bases there are several manufactures that can supply the required items for mounting the scope to your firearm. Please check with BassPro for more details

Question

What's the purpose of the Zero reset turrets.

Once you have adjusted your windage and elevation to your target, why would you set it back to zero?

answer 1
You're setting the turret clicks back to zero but the reticle itself doesn't move when you do this. If you then 'dope your scope' for a particular shot, you can easily recover the base sight-in setting afterwards without counting clicks.

answer 2
You set your turrets to zero after you zero your scope so that if you ever adjust your elevation or windage for a long shot you can easily return your scope to how it was zeroed. If you never use your turrets once your scope is zeroed zero reset turrets have no added value but since laser rangefinders have become common, many hunters are shooting distances where they need to adjust their turrets.
