I'm tossing this around as well. The 220 vs. 210...... Probably have better bullet selection with the 12. I don't care about recoil, so I can't think of a reason not to go with the 210.

I'm leaning toward the Savage 210F, seems like a very solid gun from what I've researched so far.
All I'm saying is 200 is a long way for any slug and is not easy. I like to shoot and hunt with the 20ga but for pushing the limits I like the 12. I just dont like the recoil.

Call Randy Frits at TarHunt he also does R&D for Lightfield and can give some good advice.

The Savage shoots awsome, as good or better than anything out there.

Ah, I can agree with that.

Good to hear about the Savage. It looks like a nice gun too. Just out of curiosity, what kind of scope to you have on yours. I haven't researched that part yet.

This year I'll use the HR ultra slug gun with a vxIII and a target turret
