Re: ATTN slug gun hunters
Not sure what your budget is, but I bought a Savage 220F bolt action last year and the gun is hands down the most accurate slug gun I've ever shot. Off a bench rest, I was able to keep all my 3-shot groups under 1" @ 50 yds, and I'm not the best shooter in the world.
I think I paid 400 or so for the gun, plus another 130 for a 2-7 Nikon Prostaff scope. The gun is pleasant to shoot since it's a 20 ga and has a nice recoil pad. Kicks nothing close to a 12 ga shooting the old pumpkin [censored].
The gun will take 2 & 3/4 or 3 " shells, but I started with the Hornaday SST's in 2 & 3/4 and haven't switched. They seem to shoot well with this gun.
So I would keep this gun in mind. Of course there are many other proven slug guns-mainly pumps and single shots that can be had for a little less money. But if you want the most accuarate gun, give this one a look...Good luck with your search
