Re: 220 swift......WHOA!!!!!
I have had both a .220 Swift and a .22-250. 250 was a real nice Rem 7 custom that had been built by my local smith, but had been used on a prairiedog hunt so the barrel was shot out before I ever got it, so I rebarreled it to a .308 Win. The .220 was a Ruger 77 200th Anniversary that had a nice wood stock & bull barrel. It was nasty. You could pick off birds on stumps @ 300 yards, but traded it to a guy who worked with me for the above mentioned .22-250 b/c I wanted a .308 and his gun was custom built and used the Rem 7 SA with the same bolt face as the .308, so all I had to do was a simple re-barrel...Which I did later. I probably put 200 rounds through the .22-250 before the barrel finally wouldn't group 2 shots together unless it was by luck...
