22-250 1-9" or 6mm Norma BR 1-8"

I am thinking of buying a Savage 12 LRPV, but I can't make up my mind between these two cartridges. For shooting groundhogs 500+, which would you choose and why?

I'd take the 6mm BR hands down.
You can shoot heavier, higher bc bullets and at that distance, you'd see much less wind drift.
Great brass is available and the case design is extremely efficient and accurate.

I have to agree with gamedog. The 6mmBR in the Sav. target action will be awsome. Good bullet and caliber.

Get the 6BR and don't look back. You'll love this little cartridge.

I'd second or third or whatever the 6mm! A great round for reaching out with minimal wind drift. (Compared to the 22-250)

I have the 22-250 1:12". I love the gun, but I'm goin' to get the 6NormaBR as soon as I get the cash. This sounds like the all-around varmint gun. I did a lot of research on it in the past few months, and if I had it to do again, I'd buy the 6BR. 22-250 factory ammo is gonna be cheaper, but... If you handload...

Here's a review for the 12LRPV: Savage model 12 long range precision

Check out 6mmbr.com also, here's the link for that: http://www.6mmbr.com/6mmbr.html

From the tone of the posts, buy the 6BR lol.

Good luck, and keep us posted.
