They do make the long range single shot in a 1 in 9 twist
The long range repeater only comes in a 1 in 12 (These came out after the single shots)
They also make them in 223, 204, and 6 norma BR

Re: 22/250 varmint rifle?

what about a CZ 550 Varmint Kevlar? HS Precision stock
should be a tack driver

my dad shoots 66 Sako 22-250 that has killed a lot of deer, hogs, coyotes, etc.. in Texas

it's a tack driver
we have a few Sakos and they are all top notch guns

Re: 22/250 varmint rifle?

I'm not positive, but I think savage quit making the 9 twist barrel all together for the LRPV.

I have a cheap 12 lfv in a 22-250 and it is back at savage going on 9 or 10 weeks now (its been so long I lost track of time) because It wouldnt' keep groups less than 1.5" at 100. The LRPV is in a different class however. I am one of very few who have had bad luck with savage, but I'll admit that it is their cheapest rifle save Stevens.

If I would do it over again I'd get a Tikka hands down (price range involved as well as absolutely outstanding accuracy on my current Tikka 300wsm).

My mood may change when I get my savage back from the factory however ;)
I used to re-load but now I "hand-load".

Ditto on the savage ,my 12 fv is well under an inch with factory loads out of the box and my best handload you can cover 3 shots at 100 yds with a dime.

Re: 22/250 varmint rifle?

I have two. If weight is not a concern I highly recommend the CZ550 varmint. It is about 13 lbs without scope but is notable to mention it is my second most accurate rifle of all time excluding my two BR rigs. This thing is not picky with ammo selection. As a matter of fact, the only way I could picl one load over another was with 300+ yd comparison. My best group is a three shot .060. at 100. I didn't have the guts to try for 5 and ruin this sweet of a group. My 300 yd best out of this gun is a .176 and 350 is at .562. My 400 yd is a .816. This was all shot of a bipod and bags. This is truly incredible from a non custom rig. It has a set trigger that us fully adjustable. Mine is down in the 6-8oz range. I can't tell you how much I love this rifle. It is a coyote killing machine. (and a few deer too!) Muzzle velocity is 3688 with less than 20 fps spread extreme with a 52 grain Watson custom BR bullet. I also have a Ruger Varmint. I like the steel, the stock, the weight but I HATE THE TRIGGER. I will replace it soon with a rifle basic 14oz. (great triggers for Ruger) It shoots acceptable for a factory offering but in NO way can match the accuracy of my CZ. Here is the company info on the rifle (also available in .308) YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!
