I'm looking to get a varmint gun and would love a single shot for coyotes, squirrels, ground hogs, ect. First question: 223 vs 22-250? I want to keep caliber simple and accessible and stay away from wildcats so it's between these two. I know 223 is cheaper and more accessible, but is it "worth" it for the added reach of the 22-250 (what my hunting buddies shoot)? Second question: Winchester 1885, Browning B78 (or 1885) or Ruger #1? If RUGER, would you get a laminate stock over wood for more stability and weight? If WIN or BROWNING, can a BIPOD be put on these? If so, anyone have any pictures? Never seen one of these type of single shots with a bipod. Third questions: What's your favorite scope for varminting? Thanks in advance.
