Hey every one Im new to varmint hunting and im looking for a good caliber to get started with. I would like one with pretty good long range capability so as i start to reach farther the round will be more than capable of doing so. currently my max range is about 500yds but as i practice it gets farther and farther. im seeing some good things about the .243 win but really have no good base for it. I also saw the sps varmint on remingtons site and that definately is looking attractive, but it comes in all sorts of calibers.
Basically im looking for something to poke at prarie dogs and some coyotes with but who knows i might get gutsy and take it antelope hunting too
Im open to any suggestions but would preffer to keep it on a rem 700 action
Thanks so much everybody!
