    Savage 220 , what slugs are we all using again?

    Was going to get to the range in a few weeks, was wondering what slugs everyone is using and what's working best. Thanks in advance!

    I shoot 2 3/4 Accutips with no problems. I'm sure you could find quite a few slugs that shoot very nicely out of your setup.

    Remington AccuTips, 3/4" groups at 100yds and still 4" above center, at 200yds 1.3" dead center, they fly very flat. The problem is finding the 3" but I was told by Remington they will be in stores by early fall, the 2-3/4" will do almost as well, but well enough to reach out.

    Here is my 100yrd target, the group on the solid orange line above the center of the target

    Yes, depending on how much you're going to shoot and if you're recoil sensitive or not. I got very slight improvement using the 3" over the 2 3/4" and not enough to justify the increased recoil.
    And that's not to mention the 3" are available one week a year for a two hour period on Tuesday afternoons after a full moon!(LOL). I'm sure you get the point.
    The 2 3/4 are always available.

    The only difference that i see in Remington Accutips is the 3" ($3.40 a pop) shells are $2 a box more than the 2 3/4" shells($2.97 a pop) . Shooting both at 100 yards, the difference is almost negligible.

    Neither are much available.

    Probably a matter of getting what you can and seeing what shoots best with what is on the shelves
