    20 gauge ones, the barrel should be stamped. I believe that's what the 20 part of the 220 model number is also.

    Mine shoots both Remington 2 3/4", 260 gr. Accutips, and Winchester 3" 260gr. Dual Bond. Both hold 1 MOA or better at 100 yards, three shots.

    Mine also shoots the 2 & 3/4 acutips very well. Too bad they cost so much.
    I have a Lanes reloader on the way and the slug reloading manual from Ballistic products. Hopefully I can build a good load before November.
    These guns are VERY accurate!
