Remington 11-87 semi-auto
Remington sabot slugs...nut sure of current brand name as they seem to change every other season.
Longest kill is ~100 yards but would feel comfortable taking a shot out to ~150 yards. Target shooting I can put tight groups at 100 and would expect similar performance at 150.

I also have the 870 express magnum and shoot the hornady sst sabots out of it but I rarely hunt with it. I will take my muzzleloader any day over my shotgun. Yes, you only have one shot but then again I can reach out so much further and more accurate with my muzzleloader. Also, hopefully you only need one shot. I shot my biggest buck last year at 200 yards with my knight muzzleloader. Hornady makes sst bullets for black powder rifles too which is what I use. Very deadly combination in my opinion!

If you aren't using the Savage 220F, then you might as well be using a gun from the 1800s. Seriously, this gun has made all other shotguns used with slugs, well, like using a gun from that era in comparison. Check out the facts as Chuck and others see them...
