Re: Need advice on a 22 250
I'd also vote for the Savage.
I own two long action Savages and about 12 barrels.
I have one action with a standard boltface and another with a magnum.
The barrels are 22-250, 22-250AI, 243, 25-06, 270, 30-06, 308, 300wsm,300win, 7mag, 7wsm, 284win.
I can swap barrels in about 10 minutes. If I need to swap bolt faces for some reason, it will add another 5.
I will also swap stocks around. I use the factory plastic for walk-around hunting, a tactical A5 clone for long range hunting, and I'm working on a heavy benchrest stock for target work.
