    Theres a reason the .22-250 is the "varmint" caliber all others are compared to. Its my go to gun.

    .308 comes in handy for high pressure areas where they like to give you the 400+ yard hairy eyeball though.

    Been a fan of the 22-250 for a long time but went with a fairly light 6ppc this year. Acurracy is well above par of course. Mine is a 1-14 twist shilen select match 22" some where around a magnum sporter contour on a savage action. Norma brass and 55gr. Nosler BT with IMR 8208 has been a great load!! Shoulders, chest, end for end it works. Killed em out at a little over 200yds. One male did stand up then collapsed. Except for end for end shots it always exits but never hardly any bigger then it goes in so pelt damage is minimal!!
    Really lacks the ballistics of the hot 22's though!

    So far, i have been real happy with my Remington R15 in 223. My most accurate load has been a 40 grain V Max, 3/4 inch groups at 100 yds. I know that is lighter than most shoot, but no runners so far. Longest shot though was ranged at 212 yds and it just tipped him right over.
