    Big Bucks Dreams Are Made Of

    I can’t believe I got sucked into that.

    Savage 220 is awesome!

    I was pleasantly surprised how smooth the action is on mine, and also zero ejection issues.

    Savage 220 is awesome!

    Congratulations. I bought mine two weeks ago, I love it so far. What ammo are you planning on shooting?
  4. I decided I think I might want to shoot the Barnes Bullet anyways based upon the history of how well they perform on deer size game vs the accutips.... I keep reading how sometimes deer keep running when hit with an accutip, vs dropping them in there tracks with the Barnes bullet. The Barnes are not grouping as tight as the accutips, but there shooting plenty good enough at 100yds that I won’t be worrying about wounding/ or missing Deer vitals. I guess Ill spend more time at the range again this week shooting both slugs thru the new savage. I’m enjoying the process anyways.

    Tired of the same old view

    Good luck, It’s always nice to get a new view once in a while. You can always go back to the old tree if the new spot doesn’t work out.

    Best STEAK?

    The porterhouse for two at Wolfgang’s in Somerville and the tomahawk Ribeye at Oak steakhouse in Easton PA are hands down the best locally. I’ve been two Peter Lugars a few times, and Wolfgang’s is exactly the same... they even serve the bacon by the slice appetizer. Both are expensive but are the best. Somebody mentioned Char on rt 202, it’s total bullshit compared to these two other high end steakhouses.

    Fouling the barrel?

    Pop a cap, then run a few dry patches, then load for the season. At the range I clean between each shot to maintain consistency. I’ve been doing it this way for many years.
  9. I bought the gun last week and haven’t shot an accutip at a deer yet.
  10. Originally was going for 3.4” high at 100 yds with a 150 yd zero, for hunting large AG fields and food plots out west. But it really wasn’t practicle. I’m still working it out. For now I ended the day at aprox 1.5” high at 100 yds with the accutips. The Red dots are me walking down the accutips with the last two side by side shots being the end of the session.
  11. Thats why I wanted to try them. The Barnes didn’t fly terrible, but I really hate to give up the pinpoint accuracy of those accutips. But on the other hand, I like dropping deer dead in there tracks.
  12. First picture . 100 yds, 20 gauge savage 220, 3” Remington AccuTips. I pulled the first shot then clover leafed the next 3 shots. Second picture same gun, 100 yds . 3” Remington Premier featuring BARNES expander slug. They did not group as well as the Accutips. Third picture: Five shot group again with the 3” Accutips at 100 yds. I was hoping the Remington/Barnes slug would have grouped better but I guess I’m sticking with the Accutips.

    Permanent elevated blind

    I always enjoyed hearing Herms take on things on the bowsite...I haven’t heard much from him in a while. Calhoun county is where they are from from what I remember.
