Welcome to Long Range Hunting.
There's no such thing as "too much rifle". Dead is dead...unless you're attempting to save the pelts. In that case you could just shoot them in the head.
I'd stay with your plans for the current rifle build, but I'd stay with the .22-250 caliber. It just depends on what you intend to do with it...or want the rifle to do.
Speaking from experience, I've went with a less powerful caliber and lived to regret it. I tried a .17 HMR for groundhogs and ended up going with a .223. I tried a .223 for coyotes and ended up going with a .25-06. Now, I don't have follow-up shots or disappointing blood trails...because their all DRT.
Good luck with your choices!
Good hunting, Bowhunter57
