I am getting used to how this thing works so bear with me. you are looking into varmint class calibers but you did not say what type of varmint you are after. coyote. 25s will do great with the 25-06 as one of my very favorite. 95 gr vmax at 3500 or so and you will pop dogs out to 400 and beyond with ease. if you are looking at rats and rabbits, just stick to the easy to get ammo for 223. lots to load for and lots to buy in the custom lines. not only that but you will save on heat and on barrel life. better then the hotter 224s. I have a 6.5 that is with Craig Boddington right now that will slap the life out of dogs and kill elk when i need it and it was built for under 1,000. marc

Hey japple,

I grew up in Lewiston and lived in Pasco for a year before moving to Alaska. Are you a hand-loader? If so, I'd suggest you take a look at the .22-250AI. I've got a custom being built in the AI and the ballistics are impressive to say the least. It is an old Rem 700 I bought when I was a kid and the barrel was shot out. For varmint shooting in your area, the AI will shine. Where are you located, Patterson area? I worked on the St. Michelle winery in Patterson during construction in 1981 if I remember correctly.

the 6.5x257 will be a great round to get bullets out to 800 but for the money and ease of brass i went with the 06 version. I actually live in Mount Vernon and have been using Jake Collier of Colliers custom guns. he is young and loves what he does as well as being trained by some of the best minds in the gun education world. any way i will have to look up his number but he has a web site. i am looking into a 338 right now on a 550 magnum action. don't suppose you have any expirience with the allen mags or the snipe tac 338s?
