Yesterday, I pulled the trigger on a hard to find gun... Savage 220 20ga slug gun.
With my daughter using my 870, I thought she should have her own gun and be confident with it.
So, shhhhhhh..... it's her x-mas present!!!
One thing I have to say, finding this exact gun was impossible. And... I PAID for it, trust me!!!

I know a handful up here that take that gun to Illinois. They said Remington 2 3/4 inch shells accutips are what shot best for them. I started shooting that round out of my 20gauge 870 and if you’ve seen the writes up I do about hunting Mass during gun, every deer has been killed by a accutip 2 3/4. I shot the 3 inch not as accurate. Sweet gun hope she loves it.

Beautiful gun! I'm LH so the only 220 they make for me is Blue/black. It shoots Remington Accutip 2 3/4" the best out of my gun too!!

I also topped it off with a Vortex 1x8x28 Strike Eagle lighted reticle scope. Our club has an indoor 100 yard range, can't wait to sight it in!!

Thanks. BTW the best shooting slug I found was the Remington Accutip 2 3/4 ". Problem is trying to find them.

Good Luck.
