Default Savage 220 Range Day

Headed over my local range this morning with my Savage 220 shooting ACCUTIPS 3". Here is my group at 50 yards, when I crossed referenced with NIKON SPOT ON it stated 3" high at 50 yards should put me dead center at 160 yards, which I know from past experience using this ammo. Reason I re-sighted this shotgun with the same ammo, is that back in early spring i wanted to use the Remington Premier Expanders in 3", they shot and grouped as well as the Accutips but last week I ordered a case of them, next day the order was canceled due to inventory availability shortage. So being I have a case of ACCUTIPS I decided to save my $$$ and go back using the ACCUTIPS, I never experienced a problem with them on game. I know what it will print at 100 yards, I will return to do so, the range got crowded and it was hot and humid out

That's a nice shooter. Just wondering, did you ever try the 2 3/4"?
Seems like those 3" would be pretty rough on the shoulder if the recoil is as bad as the 3" shotshell. I say that because I know what its like pattering a shotgun for turkey hunting.

I have my 220 for about 9 years, I have only tried the 3" ACCUTIPS and recoil isn't bad at all

I was seriously thinking about getting a 220 not too long ago. But I just got the "long range" itch. I ordered a Begara B-14 HMR in 6.5 CM.
I tell you, there's just to many toys and not enough $$!

I own many dedicated slug guns, they all shoot excellent, but none shoots as accurately with tack driver accuracy like the 220
