help with my wish list

hi, im 16 and I want to ask for an NEF handi rifle in 22-250 caliber and i know this is a good caliber and i've read lots of good things about the single shot gun but i have also read about accuracy problems with . the bigger calibers,
i was just wondering if this happens with the smaller calibers like the 22-250 or is it just the bigger calibers or just some general thoughts on the gun and if i should ask for one

i wonder if Santa will bring me some ammo to? Think

thanks jpbear

Tell Santa to bring you the reloading press and components and you can make all kinds of cartridges. He might have an easier time getting through the border. Thumbs up Laugh

.22-250 is a real great caliber for coyotes. Even for whitetails or pronghorn where legal.

The problem with bigger calibers is not the accuracy, it's the heavier recoil that leads to some shooters developing a flinch and causing them to shoot inaccurately. Larger calibers are just as accurate as anyother I suppose.
