Savage 24

How many guys own and have used those Savage 24 combination guns? I use my Grandfathers. It's a .22 mag over .410 and is just about perfect for squirrels and groundhogs. My late FIL had one in .223 over 12 gauge that I used for Fall turkey and it was just perfect for that application. My buddy won one in a raffle one time and it was a .357 mag over 20 gauge. We never really figured out what that one was good for? Anyhow I think the Savage 24's are a great, practical firearm.

Re: Savage 24

I just traded a member for one in. 223/20ga, its the third one I've owned the other two being. 222's. This one is very accurate and the shotgun shoots spot on with the rifle. There's a 24 website that I read sometimes that's kind of cool. Great fall Turkey gun,used to be able to use rifles in WV in the spring, but don't know if that's still the case.

Alrighty then!

Re: Savage 24

Yea, neither one of the 222's I had were very accurate either but I'm sure some of them were.

Alrighty then!

Re: Savage 24

I bought one in .222/20ga from an HPA member earlier this year,put a scope on it and was very impressed with the accuracy of the .222.I haven't patterned the 20ga. yet.
Some folks have told me they get a different POI from the 2 barrels.

When I use the scope the shotgun patterns a foot lower that 222 POI.

Great close range deer gun right there!

We all make choices, some good, some bad, can you live up to yours?
