    Nice. These guns have a reputation for accuracy.

    I bought One last year to. Model 220 bolt action in 20 ga. Shot 1 doe with it at 120 yards. Right through the cage, dropped right there. No tracking involved. I used a win. Partittion gold slug. These make a huge hole, but not real tight groups at 100 yds. Fella at the club said to try a slug with a polymer tip. Better groups, and just as deadly.

    I've had an older Model 210 for about the past 10 years. I'd prefer to carry that over my .06 or .280 here in PA. Most shots within 100yds, and plenty of gun for that. Never had one walk away. Federals with Barnes Expander. Tried polymer tips, but Expanders work much better. 2 3/4" also, no 3"s!!
