Savage 220F: The Good & Bad
Looking into purchasing one of these and would like to know from any owners what they like, & dislike about it and if any improvements they either made or think should be made, what did you pay for it, and also what ammo is working for you.

I have two Savage 220f slug guns one is my sons.

cons: Need a one piece base or a very long scope. Barrel has a tendency to heat up pretty quick. my 20 ga h&k ultra slug has a heavier barrel and does not get as hot. Neither of 220f would group the Barnes tipped expanders and this was one of Savages recommended sabots.

pros: Both 220f were extremely accurate with the 3" Remington accutips. The 220f is light and has an excellent recoil pad on it.
It is more like a rifle than a shotgun. They are as accurate as my H&R ultra slug shotgun witout all the weight and the trigger is excellent and adjustable.
I highly recommend the savage 220f.

I have had one since June. I have only put 10 rounds through it as it is to hot to shoot right now. I wanted the black one and the guy shot me a price of 429 he could not find one in black so he sold me the camo one in the store for the same price. I shoot 3 inch accutips. Hardly any kick and very light. I put a Nikon Buckmasters 6x18x40 as I needed it for longer shots over grain fields.

there is a one piece base for this gun

I have one and with the accutip 3" I'm shooing 3/4 inch groups at 100 yards. I have a Zeiss Conqest 3-9x40 on the top of it.

I honestly don't see any cons to this gun, for what you pay and the accuracy you get... Add in the accutrigger... cons???
