My old hunting partner and I hunted a 24/7 deer deprevation permit for years. He had the Hastings barrel on his 12Ga Remington, and it was simply a tackdriver. Pretty much accurate with any sabot he tried, including the Copper Solids. (I know).
He picked up a Savage 220 in 20Ga, with the camo stock and never looked back. He sold the 12 Ga.
That 220 impressed me so much that I own one too. After filling the forestock with Accraglas to stiffen it up, and bedding the action as well, mine is easily accurate to 150 yds, and at FTRPAs 200 yd range it hit the 9X9inch steel plate 5 for 5 pretty much center.
Zeroed 1.75 inches at 100 yds using 3" Accutips it is dead on at 125 yds, and 2 1/2" low at 150. If you want a suggestion for a "put it in the middle and pull the trigger" gun this is it.
Remember.... they're full time deer......we're part time hunters!
