Just picked up a Savage 220f that I'm going to let my brother use while he's in town. I'll use it when he heads home late next week. I'll use my Thompson Center Omega muzzleloader until then. The accuracy of both of these guns is amazing but I like the quicker follow up shot if needed with the Savage.

The one you have with slugs. Personally using an 870 Police with foster type slugs in lieu of my rifle.

20 gauge Ithaca 87 Deer Slayer (same as 37). Low recoil, light, easy to carry and accurate.

New Browning A5, Benelli sbe2, Benelli m2, Beretta a400 xtreme plus, or Stoeger m3500. Whichever one my heart feels that morning I'll grab. Tough decision sometimes.

Prior to this season, I would say my old Ithaca 37, pump-action, 16-gauge, smoothbore, deerslayer with foster slugs . Now, the edge goes to my Marlin 512, bolt-action with 2-3/4 Hornady sst sabots. I finally scored my biggest antlered buck with it this year (182 pounds dressed weight). The best I did with the old Ithaca was 178 pounds. The rifled Marlin is more accurate at longer ranges.

Now, I just need a better scope for it. The old Bushnell Banner 3X just ain't quite cutting the mustard any-more. I hit that big slob with all three slugs I fired at him (last was a neck-finisher at point blank range), but the first two shots from 100 yards away were a little off from my intended point of aim. I am leaning towards a Redfield 2-7X.

I like my Ithaca DeerSlayer III 12 gauge with fully rifled bull barrel. At 11lbs empty she is not something you want to take on long hikes but for stand hunting she has the ability to reach out to 200 yards with the right loads.

Since I prefer to use the big smoothbore in a manner that lives up to it's name, my favorite is a 12 gauge, Remington 870 with a 26" vent rib barrel. Pardner that shotgun with a Briley .695" exit diameter extended "full"choke and some 3" Dixie Tri-Ball 12 gauge buckshot ammo* and then you have a real shotgun for big bucks!

That bead on a flat sight picture is fast. Those big hard cast 22 gauge pellets pattern incredibly tight. Deer hit with three 320 grain pellets seldom go anywhere but down - that is important when you hunt heavy cover. And you are hunting with an honest pellet firing shotgun!

Ultrabore, 729 caliber rifles, with composite case ammunition, are another story altogether!

* Or my handloaded version.

It depends what you prefer, handles well and you can afford. My recommendation would be to look at the used gun racks in a few gun shops to see what is available. My preference would be for a Remington Model 870 Wingmaster, a Browning Citori over/under or a Remington Model 1100 semi-auto because I have them and can shoot them fairly well. Each of them were bought used for $209 (870), $500 (Citori) and $300 (1100). All the best...
