Mad - I do admit that I have about 50 of the 2 3/4" Federals and 50 of the Accutips and 25 Expanders and will be shooting 12 shots today along with the Muzzle Loader (just trying to get it on paper) along with the 243 that I was trying to "Walk In" and ran out of ammo...LOL...and the two inexpensive Mossberg Patriots, I think I have a grand in both rifles, scopes and rings...

It's Range Day and that has been a flurry of activity in the house already this morning....

But that's Mad, it would be a dream for me to buy them all out...LOL...

Guys - thanks for the comments, did a test yesterday on my Savage Model 220 Slug Gun....shot the Slug Gun 12 times yesterday and I tell you even though I have something called the BoSledge I could still feel the recoil, just ask my right shoulder, Ouch 12 times....but I had to find out what ammo that my particular Savage 220 Slug Gun liked...I have three choices that I had to choose from...with all the research and talking with several other folks with the Model 220 all of them said that the 3" shot best in it....

Target 5 was the 2.75" Hornady SST and Target 6 was the Remington Accutips and Target 7 was the Remington Expanders....

The results are in and yes I can say that the 3" 20 gauge slugs works best in my particular 220. Others will like the 2.75" in theirs, but mine like the Remington Accutips 1st and the 2nd choice was the Remington Expanders....

Here is how I conducted the test, I fired 3 rounds each, one each from the 3 choices of ammo I had...the 2.75 (Hornady SST) and the two Remington products, the Accutips and the Expanders.....after I had fired 3 shot (one from each of the three slugs that I was testing) into the bank. Waited 7 minutes between shots. The funny thing about all the shells is that on the first shot from each target 5, 6 and 7 was somewhere close to the bulls eye....but as I shot, the Accutips became the clear winner in my particular model 220....

Enjoy, Bo

is that at 100 yards? i will move back to 100 after the bear hunt

i agree, the accutips look good

funny thing is, i shot the 2 3/4" hornadys w/ a lead sled and only 25# wt. i normally use 50#. i didn't get a big kick. my daughter didn't say anything either except it was loud, even though she had ear protection. maybe the 3" will kick my butt(pun intended --099-780)

Having that first shot on the bullseye is important.  With shotgun slugs, it's pretty typical to only need one.

Yari - yes all shots these days are at 100 yards...but later on will move back to 200 yards on a few but will not on the Model 220....the good news is - in warming up for the test did shoot the bank at 400 yards away.....was aiming at a certain point and when I shot, the bottom of the bank exploded....so I figure it drops at about 4 ft or more at 400 yards....but for now will keep the shots for the Savage Slug Gun gun and the Muzzle Loader at 100 yards....

Mad - yes that was the funny part - on each of the first shots the all cut the bulls eye! funny I was stunned at them at first but then after the third shot we had a winner....like I said in my earlier post that the test was for mine and mine along Savage 220 slug gun....yours or others may be different....but the total shots fired was 12 of them...

Thanks for the comments....Bo
