The Savage® 220 F Bolt-Action Shotgun provides hunters with a modern, and superbly accurate slug gun they can use for deer hunting in slug only zones. A free-floated rifled barrel with a 1:24-inch rate of twist, coupled with the Savage's AccuTrigger® enables shooters to obtain exceptional accuracy with the 220 F. The AccuTrigger is user adjustable for weight of pull to obtain a light, crisp release with no creep. A lever mounted within the trigger body blocks the sear unless the trigger is intentionally pressed in the center, virtually minimizing the risk of accidental discharge. The Savage 220 F slug gun has a matte black finished steel barrel and receiver, and a rugged, weather-resistant synthetic stock. Sling swivel studs and a thick rubber recoil pad are standard; the receiver comes drilled and tapped for scope bases. A 2-shot detachable magazine allows you to get off a second and third shot quickly, and makes loading and unloading a breeze. The Savage 220 F Bolt-Action Slug Gun utilizes a 3-position ambidextrous tang safety that is easily reached with the shooter's thumb.
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.

BEST SLUG GUN PERIOD
THIS IS AN AMAZING SLUG GUN. IT'S MORE RIFLE THAN SHOT GUN AND WITH TODAYS SABOTED AMMUNITION YOU CAN'T GO WRONG. DO YOURSELF A FAVOR AND FOLLOW SAVAGE'S RECOMMENDATION AND USE THE REMINGTON PREMIER ACCU TIP SABOTED SLUG. THIS GUN LOVES IT AND WILL SHOOT VERY WELL.

Excellent Slug Gun
I have used the Model 220 for the past two gun seasons and have had a clean knock down kill on the first shot each time. Only 4 of 5 stars due to my gun being particular about ammunition, had mis-fires with hornady SST's and Winchesters. Never had an issue with Lightfields or Remmingtons. 2-7 Leupold scope on it and it is a very potent rig. Very tight groups when sighted in. I agree with other reviewers, hold onto the stock. The barrel jumps due to the slow speed of the slug travel.

My 220F is superbly accurate. I get 2" or less at 100 yards with Federal Expander Tipped slugs. When you shoot long range with slugs make sure you hold down on the barrel, slugs move so slow the slug is still in the barrel when the gun is recoiling.

I have a Savage 25-06 for deer hunting and am looking to get a shotgun for turkey hunting. This one would look pretty good in the case next to my deer gun. I was wondering if anyone has used it with bird shot for turkey hunting before? I didn't know if the fact it was a slug gun or had a rifled barrel affected it's abilities for bird hunting with bird shot? Thanks
Not sure the difference. I use 2 3/4" shells and have not had any problems with lack of knock down power, but I'm using lightfields and they are 7/8 oz bullet weight. 3" would generally give you a faster muzzle velocity and allow for a heavier bullet payload, but I would recommend taking some of each to the range and see what works best. Depending on what you are hunting, the 2 3/4" should have enough to cleanly harvest deer.
I have a Leupold VX-I Matte finish 2-7 power on mine. It works great. Depends on how far out you plan on shooting. I think I paid about $220 for my scope, so it was definately on the cheaper side. In my opinion, Leopolds are pretty good and are offered at a variety of price ranges.
The write-up in NRA magazine used the Nikon 3x9 Slughunter scope and produced impressive results. I picked one up on sale for less than $200 on-line. I put it on my 20 gauge 870 and like the performance.
I would get the Bushnell 1-6x32 Shotgun Scope... That's what I have on my shotgun and it handles recoil like a champ, great lighting through the tube, and V-E-R-Y clear! BP sells them for $99 and they are worth every penny and then some! I have Bushnell on my entire arsenal!
How does that Slug Gun hold up? I have been eye-balling them now for a while???
