Oh and not to mention you can add a 30-30 barrel for the 220 as well. As far as the multiple choke options of the O/U & SxS, is it really a huge deal when hunting with a pointer? I can clearly see the benefit when hunting behind a flusher or pass shooting doves/ducks. But a majority of shots over a ...
