Savage 220F 20 Gauge Rifled Barrel Slug Shotgun
Moved to a slug only county, had never shot one before. Did some research and saw all the great reviews of the Savage 220 so I figured why not once I saw that it was only $120 more to buy this gun then it would have been to get the cantilever riflled slug barrel for my 870.
Bought it on Sunday, went out on Sat, last day of buck in PA. Saw a buck on my walk out of the woods at 80 yards, with some brush between us. Blew right threw the brush, 2 inches over the shoulder and exited almost the same spot. Used 2 3/4 sabot rem accu tips only because they didn't make the 3in this year. Accuracy is spot on and groupings while sighting in were filling each others holes.
Put the Nikon Prostaff shotgun hunter scope on it with the Marne Picadilly rail and rings. Really happy with this set-up and would recommend it to anyone!!

Best Slug Gun
Best Slug Gun! I absolutely love this gun and it was well worth the wait and money. I am using a Bushnell 3x9 and took about 4 shots to have it sighted in at 100 yds. I have had three shots at three deer and three kills. None of them ran more than 20 yards after the shot. I am shooting Federal Premium Trophy Copper Sabot Slugs since I can never find the Accu Tips. Never had a misfire and as long as you work the bolt nice and easy the shells eject just fine. Again, absolutely love this gun!

Zero regrets and venison in the freezer!
I purchased my 220F from my local Bass Pro in October. The gun was quickly sighted in with the recommended Remington AccuTip 3 inch sabots. We had immediate success, with 2 inch groups at 100 yards. A Bushnell Elite 3x9x40 helped. My first hunt with the 220F was in central Illinois this past week. The very first shot found its mark at 167 yards, and 2 more kills at over 100 yards followed over the next day and a half. I cannot think of a single negative thing to say about this gun. It IS all that it's cracked up to be! Cant wait to pull it out again, and take aim. BRAVO Savage!!

cant meet the hipe
This gun may be alright for the money but its not near what its built up to be. I have had no misfires yet.It is light weght and feels handy. It does have ejection probbems. Ive shot 200.00 whorth of slugs through it,federals,remingtons, hornadys,some 3" some 2 3|4 and winchester. None meet the hipe. All but the winchesters can barely hit a paper plate at 100 yds. and though the winchesters did better still had one flyer that mised the plate. 5 to 7 min between shots to let barrel cool. this gun so far has been a disapointment.
