Yeah, you could get rid of your weight set that has clothes hanging all over it, and start benchpressing this rifle.

Savage 12BVSS or the Long Range precision if you want to spend a little more $$$.

Varmint Rifle

I do like the Savage's. The only problem is their stock's. But then I guess if they had better stock's then their price would be higher. I have a Savage 12FVSS and the rifle is a real shooter. The only problem is that I had to restock the rifle, the stock that came with the rifle is truly junk. I have $1,000 in the stock. It sure is pretty, but it was not cheap(picture).

I recommend you do what I did. I bought the Remington LH VSF in 22-250. I then took it to my gunsmith and am having him put a new 28" Krieger tube on it. You should be able to rebarrel it for about $500. I am having a 1 in 8 twist barrel put on it for the 75 grain A-Max. This will truly give you a custom tack driver, without having to take out a loan. This rig will allow you to have the HS Precision Varmint stock. Tom.

I have two 22-250's one is a standard Remington Varmint Series with a 14 twist in a HS precision stock... it shoots.5" easy and better most of the time. The other is a BR gun that has a switch barrel, one in 22-250 with an 8 twist that I had throated for the 75 grain A_maxes. This barrel is a shooter and very accurate... however my main quarry is groundhogs and I was trying to get into the 500 yard club with that gun... I could hit the groundhogs with the 75's but it woudln't kill them esp. at the longer ranges.... depending on your quarry I would caution the use of the 75's... super accurate.... not quite as terminal as a varmint bullet... but hey... they're not designed to be a varmint bullet. That being said, lots of people have had great success with the same bullet and type of set-up...I bought up a bunch of the starke 68 & 80 grain RPVarmint Bullets and have been using them on varmints with much better success. I still use it today, but have been enjoying my 243AI for longer range shooting with excellent results.
I have heard and witnessed that the new Savages are one of the most accurate out of the box guns today. Got a buddy that has a 112 BVSS in 220 swift it's an older one... but its a tack driver!!! Hope this helps. Sam

The Savage Long range Precision Varminter has a H-S stock, yes you are right the price is higher. I am not 100% they make the 1-9" for the 22-250, but I think they do. Like'ta get my hands on one.

I have a Savage Model 10 Predator Hunter and a TC Encore, both in 22-250 and can recomend either one.
