Is it marked "3 in" on the side of the barrel or receiver? If not, take it to a gunsmith and ask him to measure the chambers. Blue Book doesn't indicate a B series, and this COULD have been Savage's way of indicating longer chambers. Since the first model 220's were made in 1938, it is quite possible that the chambers are only 2 3/4 and, although a 3" shell would go in, the crimped or rolled end could not open fully.

Where can you buy a complete bolt assembly for a Revelation model 220B?

The Revelation 220B cross references to a Mossberg 800B. Unfortunately, the rifle has been out of production for some time, and the usual sources of parts are empty. You may check with Havlin Sales through their website- Mr. Victor Havlin is one of the best sources of parts and info for Mossbergs, and he and his wife Cheryl run the Mossberg Collectors Assoc. Good luck-

What type of ammo can you fire out of a Savage model 220 12ga shotgun with a poly choke?

There isn't a 220P. There is a 220F, which is bolt action, and a 220B, which is single shot and breaks open. It will state on the barrel if it is 2-3/4" or 3". 3" will fire either. You can load a 3" into a 2-3/4" chamber, but you should not. Both guns will handle all modern 12 gauge ammo, as long as you stick to the proper length shell if it is 2-3/4" Next is the choke. It is possible to fire slugs through any choke, but it is not recommended to fire them through anything tighter than Improved cylinder (IC). It should state on the barrel. I expect most are "Mod" (Modified) which is tighter than IC.
