re: Snowy Mountain Rifles wants your input on ideal walking varmint rifle

OK, so the McMillan Hunter and the McMillan Remington Hunter are not the same stock, but similar. I'll make sure I keep track of the difference for these. Thanks for the clarification.

Mr. Swift, I'll mark down the Manners T5A with their molded in desert finish. I think this will be cheaper than a painted finish and more durable. Sound good?

    In my neck of the woods, the serious 'yote shooters all use the same cartridge.

    1-8" Twist Kreiger #5 or #6 Fluted (I prefer Helical flutes)
    22-243 caliber
    75 or 80 grn A-Max

    Manners T-5A or McMillan A-5 in Desert Camo
    Flush cups & Atlas rail.

    Jewell trigger

    What did I forget?

    What length barrel do you guys run? I'm going to guess 24". And what kind of barrel life are you seeing with that? I would think it would be pretty short but you also probably aren't sending 10 rounds at a time in short order. Sounds like a nice set-up though.
