    Alright I've had my savage 220 for a couple years now tried quite a few different slugs out of it best groups I could get was with remington accutips... but I can never find em anymore... I tried Remington barnes expander, federal trophy copper and hornady sst they sucked in my gun... anyone try brownings bxs sabots? Or even some of winchester sabots in this gun? I know all guns are different but seems like the savage 220 shoots accutips the best out of everyone I know who has em

    My brother and I each have a 220 and they both prefer the Hornady SST's. I have a CVA single shot break action 20ga slug gun it it really likes the accu-tips. I agree the accu-tips are hard to find around me, too.

    Accutips 2 3/4” is my choice. Let your fingers do the walkin’. I see they are for sale on Gun Brokers, as well as an outfit called Vance Outdoors.

    The material that came with mine recommended Accutips in 3” for best results.

    I have 2. One shoots 3" AccuTips and 3" Federal Trophy Coppers equally well( sub MOA @ 100). The other strictly prefers 2 3/4" Trophy Coppers.

    I found eight boxes at a LGS that are now in the ammo depot.
