I recently purchased a Savage 220F 20 gauge shotgun.
This is built on a 110 action - veeeerrrrry long - and handles just like a rifle. If you did not look at the barrel, you would not know it was a shotgun.
I having trouble grouping off of the bench, however...
My groups are about 4 -5 " at 100 yards and occasionally, I will get a flyer that is 8" out there.
I read that you hold a shotgun differently than a rifle when shooting it - maybe this is only true for a slug gun...
Any hints or can anyone expand on this subject - and on shotgun accuracy in general??
I love the gun but a 4" group at 100 yards - with one getting away every once in a while - is not very comforting from a hunter's perspective....
I am using the Federal Premuim shells with the Barnes Tipped Expander bullet - # P209XT1 - which is one of only 2 shells Savage says to use in the gun.
