22-250

I had a Sako Forrester in 22-250 and it was a fine gun. Wish I didn't trade it. I never shot it that much so i never wore out a barrel. I was a good woodchuck gun. Very accurate. I still have about 40 rounds of ammo left that the gun shop didn't want when I traded it so that means I need to get another 22-250 so I can use up that $20 worth of ammo. Big smile

22-250 , 223 or 220 ???

I've had 2- 223's and used a 22-250 for awhile. But I too get some wind so I use a 243. And then it was a gift when I was throwing around the idea of one. When I get another 22 it'll be a 223 because I have so many mty cases around but my favorite 22 was the 222 Rem.Mine not only shoy the pant's off my 223's but it stayed on target at the shot and my 223's jumped off just enough for me not to watch. I think the 222 Rem is pretty much gone.

The 222 rem is a fine round. Good luck trying to find one. I think they're all put safely away in private collections.

I was looking through some of the rifle manufacturers offering. I notices that one of them is offerinf a 222rem in a bolt. I believe it was Remington.
