gun)I am looking to go on a prairie dog hunt in south dakota this summer with a group of friends. We are all avid hunters but do not own rifles because we live in lower Michigan where a shotgun and .22 do most of our killing. We are looking to purchase a 22-250 remington caliber rifle and just wanted to know if a bull barrel is absolutly necessary. We would like to use these guns for predator hunts in the future and dont really want a 26" bull barrel to lug around. Can anyone help?!?!
