Hi to all! Thank you to all who gave me information on a accurate out of the box varmint rifle to buy. I have come to the conclusion and buy a savage long range precision varminter. From reading other posted articles on long range hunting i see that the .223 is a more preffered calibre. Is it a better calibre for the long range shooting meaning, better accuracy than the 22/250? I am wanting to use the 75 grain projectile to take out target at 500 plus yards. Thank you and looking forward to your replies.
