Hi everyone. I am obviously new to this site, but I have tried to do my research before posting. I do a lot of longer range shooting, 300 to 600 yards, and would love to buy a 22-250 with a heavy barrel or bull barrel. I will primarily be punching paper with it, although I would also be using it for some small game/ coyote hunting. I have been looking around at all different brands of rifles, but can not seem to get a good answer on what would best fit my application. I have never been a big fan of the synthetic stocks, always preferred the feel of a wooden stock. With that being said, after handling the TC venture predator, I liked how it felt, only was not happy with the sporter barrel. I liked shooting the Tika as well, but with a 14 twist, I wasn’t sure if it would be able to do what I wanted. I was hoping to get some more knowledge in the area, or maybe someone could point me in the right direction. Thank you very much.
