most accurate long range shotgun.

I would like to start a discussion about how we could mame the most accurate shotgun. Currently I am using an H&R and accutips after trying all others. I am looking for ideas or suggestions to make it better. My list so far is simple, I am having a crown cut were there is none. That is all I can come up with. The trigger job creates some new problems with the safety so thats out. Any thoughts.

Re: most accurate long range shotgun.

Living in a shotgun only state, my buddy and I bought a couple of Savage 220's a couple of years ago. No problem getting 1 MOA out to 200 yards with a variety of different loads. On a good day they will print cover leaves at 100 yards. Mine really likes 2 3/4" Accutips, my buddy's likes Hornady SST's. I believe they are the same projectiles.

I'm with him, built up a savage with EGW rings and bases, leupold slug hunter scope. Very accurate shotguns.

Re: most accurate long range shotgun.

Sorry for the confusion, I have tried several 220's. I am currently using a HR ultra slughunter, Leopold scope. I can easily make all holes touch at 100 yards. My question is can u guys think of anything that could make it even better. Longer custom barrel? I have a fortune in this adventure and many slug guns later the hr is the best ive come acrossed but can we make it better. Thanks for any suggestions.

Re: most accurate long range shotgun.

I had a 24" Hastings barrel with a sabot discharge muzzle brake. I cut it off the brake because it would shred the sabot. Best groups were 2 1/2" @ 100 yds. with Barnes expander. I should of went with a heavy 26" Hastings and be done with it. My old rem 1100 shoots clover leafs @ 100 yds with imp. cylinder, double bead sites and 28" smooth bore target barrel, thats with 1oz rifled winchesters. I'm getting a H&R next its a tank of a gun.

Re: most accurate long range shotgun.

I would look at the tarhunt RSG line. I love mine but they are a bit expensive for a slug gun.
