Re: Slow 22.250 or fast 223

the gun is more important than the caliber. if it is not a remington 700. then i would say a 9 twist 22-250. savage lrpv.

Having owned 22-250's from 1-14"tw-1-8"tw and 223/223AI's in the same twists I would greedily take a 1-8"tw 223/223I over the slow '250.....and likely over the 1-8" 22-250 as well. The fast twist 223/223AI will do a lot in such a small package. I've used the 75Amax's at 3100 in my 223AI's to take whitetail at 250yds plus, and woodchucks to 600yds. I just love it.

A 1-8" 223AI is my favorite chambering.
