Stevens 320 Security 20ga - Range Report
Got the Little Man a new Savage 320
Security in .20ga for HD/YD.
At the range today, the first thing we
did was function check it a few times
with #7.5 Shot.
Then sighted it in at 25yrds with Slugs.
It was slightly left of the tape so I

click adjustable!! That is a NICE touch

clicks, it was good to go.
Next we patterned it at 5/10/20 yards
with #1 Buck.

general running of the gun fast and
accurately from 7-10 yards using
cheaper #7.5 Shot. He did well.
It's a good gun for $180 that he can
use and learn with. Recoil is minimal
but function seems above its pay
grade. Not bad.
On a side note, I finally found some
410ga ammo and got #6 shot for small
That should work around the yard.
