Savage 220F slug gun

Date:October 22, 2010
Bought this gun this year. I hunt private land, usually with a Sako 30-06. The land borders state forrest. Can't hunt with rifle on state land. Bought this gun so I could wander. What a shooter!!!!. Sighted it in first at 50 yards. One hole 3 shot group. Moved back to 100 yards. consistantly shoots 1 inch groups at that range. Come on deer season!!! I am ready.

This F gets an A+

Date:July 9, 2010
I recently purchased the Savage 220F 20G in camo finish. I mounted a Bushnell Trophy slug scope (1.75 X- 4 X) using a one piece picatinny base (as recommended by Savage). I shot 3- shot groups at 50 yards from a Caldwell Lead Sled using Hornady SST(2 3/4 in), Federal Barnes Tipped Expander(3 in), and Remington Accutip (2 3/4 in). The Hornadys did not group well, the Federals grouped acceptably, and the Remingtons grouped very well (1 in. groups at 50 yds). While the 3 in. did not eject smoothly, the 2 3/4 Remingtons all ejected fine without any unnecessary force being applied to the bolt.
The gun itself has a nice feel, and the accutrigger is crisp with no detectable creep. The fit and finish of the gun is what you would expect from a moderately priced synthetic. Overall, I am very impressed with the Savage 220F and give it an A+!

Savage 210F

Date:January 31, 2010
Guns shoots excellent groups and is not picky about different brands of ammo. The one problem that I have had is with the shell ejection. If you don't work the bolt very hard the shell often fails to eject. Prime example this past hunting season, I shot a doe but wasn't certain of the hit as the deer ran closer, I tried to work the bolt action nice as easy and the shell failed to eject. I have had this happen a few times now and have read of others online having the same problem.

Savage 220

Date:January 16, 2010
I bought a Savage 220 (20 guage) Slug gun from Cabelas
I had them set up the gun They put on the following Weaver 2-46M top mounts with Warne Maxima rings Med hieght and a scope from them I'll review the scope in the scope reviews
They bore sited it in and with in 4 shots One at 25yds One at 50yds and the last two where touching at 100 yds All I had to do was dial it in after that There are no problems with ejecting the
spent shells I learned from a reliable sorce the Savage needs to ejected in a smooth method Too slow or to fast can cause the shells to hang up (slow) or bounce off the scope (fast)
So I would recommend this gun It out shoots my Winchester Model 70 Great job by the Staff at Hamburg Pa for there help
Also Savage give recommadations as to what slugs shoot best

Shoots great, loading is a problem

Date:December 10, 2009
The 210 shoots great. It replaced my Winchester 1300 with a rifled barrel. The savage is a much better shooting gun and has less kick than the Winchester. Even at 100 yards, when using good ammunition, you can shoot a 3 shot group within a few inches and many times touching impact holes. It will only shoot 3" sabots. The magazine will not support 2 3/4" shells. But that was fine with me since I only use 3".
Loading is a pain. The shells load through the chamber down into the magazine. There is a little lip in the top of the magazine that holds the brass end down. You cannot do it with gloves on. You load two into the magazine and then have to slide a third shell into the chamber and hold the shell in the magazine down as you slide the bolt forward. Otherwise the bolt tries to chamber the magazine shell. If you only want to hunt with 2 shells than it is less of a problem. But in either case, you cannot load this gun with gloves on.
