Help me decide on .224 caliber and rifle
I just sold my Ruger .22-250 that I owned for many years so I now have a need for another .22 caliber centerfire. Here are my questions:
1. Which caliber would you buy for varmint and target work out to 300-400 yards? .223 or .22-250?
I have dies for both.
I was going to get a .22-250 but am wondering about barrel life.
2. What twist barrel would you get?
3. Which mfg./model would you get? Weight is not an issue because it will not be a walking gun. I prefer synthetic stocks, but its not a show stopper. Accuracy is most important consideration.
