    As an adder to my question about the 700 SPS Varmint post, I thought I might also ask you guys(and gals) a more broad question. What is the most accurate factory varmint rifle?... On a budget /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    PLEASE do not limit discussion to the poll, the poll is just what considered so far

    Keep in mind that the Sendero is a big game rifle, and chambered in magnum cartridges... not too good for "varmints"

    I was surprised that you did not list the Rem 700 Varmint Specials (in several versions). They are very common, and shoot well. The VS-SF-II varmint is identical the the Sendero, but in varmint calibers.

    I have NEVER heard a bad word about the CZ rifles - they are extremely accurate, and reasonably priced.

    On a real budget I'd say the Savage 12FV. If you've got a little more get the BVSS or the VLP. Much, much nicer stock.

    I voted Sendero but really mean VSSF II, mine in 204 is a tack driver.

    the 12 FV is the most budget-est /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif rifle on that list, and one of the most accurate.....

    I think i love them all, don't own a cz almost bought one. But My most accurate out of box is my cooper 22ppc, single shot. Guaranteed to shoot half inch at 100 yards (three shot group).

    I agree - I'm happy with mine so far.
    It's what, about $100 less than the SS version?

    My friend and I bought the Ruger mark 2 target rifles when they first came out. Mine was in 22-250 his was in 220 swift. Both were legitimate 1/4 inch guns. I shot crows coyotes and porcipines past 400 yards with mine. The 22-250 shot 55gr B-tips and V-max into tiny little groups, it also liked 52 gr bthp. After the 150 round mark my rugers barrel cleaned up super easy, copper fouling was minimal. I would probably say it was one of the best factory barrels I've ever owned.
