haha who is claiming 1" groups at 200yds?

this gun is suppose to shoot well, but typically 5" at 100yds seems to be good/average.

if you can hit a pie plate at 100yds it always seemed to be doing average...

if it could do 1" at 100yds I'd run out and buy one today!

I have seen good shooters and bad shooters. Never once have I seen a subMOA shooter. I have seen some get 2MOA accuracy regularly at 100 but all bets are off past that. Slugs loose energy very quick past 100 yards.

Randy Wakeman did a review of the Savage 220F and claimed 1.5" groups @ 100 yards and 3.5" groups @ 200 yards. If you google "Savage 220 reviews" or "Randy Wakeman" you should be able to find it.

I shoot 3/4 inch groups at 100 yards with remington premier accutip 3" slugs.. repeatable.. off bags...

200 yards, I can group but I'm like 13 inches low.. ehhhh

with my savage 220f using remington accu-tip 3", at 100 yards I'm getting 3/4" groups, 4" high at above center, this should put me within a deer's kill zone out to 200yards

If you're 4" high at 100, how high are you at 50 yards?
