    When I have had issues grouping with a scoped gun my problems have mostly been with the scope rings. I now use the 'tactical' rings with six screws on each cap.

    I had a 220f, it liked the remingiton accutips and also the Ferderal sabots.

    I helped a buddy site in his 220
    we tried
    Hornady 2.75" and 8" groups would have been good they were absolutely horrible
    3" Federal trophy copper and 4" groups were the best we could do
    3" Accutips 3" groups
    2.75" Accutips we were sub 2"
    all at 100 yards

    Accutips are hard to find, I picked up 4 boxs at Basspro in Michigan last week.
    They only had 4 boxes so I bought them all.
    $26.oo us a box

    I really want to thank all you guys for the info. It seems I got the wrong ammo.
    I’ll try it again when I get some accutips.

    I had very good grouping with Federal Power Shok Sabot slug 2 3/4.
    Plain Jane lead-yet it was close to Accutip 3 " accuracy.
    Maybe you can find some(TSC and Canadian Tire had them-and they are not the usual suspects for ammo source)..........cheap too.

    I have the 220 as well and like others have mentioned, the Accutips are the cats meow for that specific gun. The problem is trying to find some for sale at the moment as they are scarcer then hens teeth.

    Also incredibly expensive! Easthill had a good supply of the 3" - I believe around 200 boxes, and they sold out at $38.20 a box! With tax, that's almost $9 a shot. Not cheap when you need to sight in a new scope. Absolutely crazy. Consider switching to 12 G.
