Like the title says.

 

How would you rate the deer slayer slug gun against the Mossberg695 and the savage?

 

I will be in the market next year and have the option of those three.

I bought and just recently shot a Savage 220.  I used the 23/4" accutips which I shot off sand bags off the hood of my truck.  2" or less groups.  I don't need to shoot farther than that.  And I had no issues with ejecting spent shells or cycling unfired shells in from the magazine.  Maybe I just got lucky with a good gun.  I like it.

Hummm Mossberg... Do they make a 20ga bolt?

when comparing these are you comparing them overall or in gauge?

 

I own the Savage 220f and a few other 20ga slug guns and a few 12ga slug guns

 

The Savage 220f:

Pros:

Handles like a rifle

Great Trigger

light in weight

Deadly Accurate 

 

Cons:

Some come with rough actions, no need to panic lap the bolt and bolt rails, and it becomes smoother

Some claim ejection problems, I never had that issue

 

When it comes to the 20ga I firmly believe in the 3" shells (2-3/4" are good) Remington Accutips

The 12ga I like the 2-3/4"

 

If getting the Savage 220f and your a right hand shooter and the scope your using has a 40mm bell, get yourself the DNZ one piece scope mount/base part # 18200....It's medium height, and has perfect bolt clearance.

 

When I got my Savage, they only offered it in Black, almost two years ago I had it Hydro Dipped here in Northern NJ

Here is my target at 100 yds, on the solid orange line above dead center

I have a Ithaca in 12. No failure to fire, failures to eject, or problems associated with the other guns. I shoot left handed so at the time it was the only game in town. I wanted a fixed barrel rifled gun for slugs only. If they make a left handed 20 A-bolt that would be my next gun which is not likely.

I spent most of my money on hunting and fishing. The rest I just wasted.

The Ithaca also has a nice stock design for slug shooting. Handles recoil well and the scope lines up well. For accuracy thats up to the shooter but I have set up three built over a few years with good results.

I own two older model Ithaca 37s, one each in 12ga & 20ga, I have a smoothbore slug barrel on the 12ga, and the rifled barrel with rifle sights.....Love to get the rifled/cantilever barrel for each, but asking price is way to much. When it comes to pumps I think the Ithacas are one of the best
