Varmint Rifles

OK, it's shopping time again (at least I think so - have to check with my wife first Big smile ).

Anyway, by the subjet line of this post, I'm sure that y'all have figured out that I'm looking for a varmint gun. Just a few too many prairie rats in this world for my taste.

At this point I'm looking at the Savage Model 12-BVSS, Remington 700, Weatherby Super Varmint Master (only if a winning lottery ticket blows my way) and Ruger No. 1 - all in .22-250.

Right now, I would have to say that the Savage is in the lead, but I'd like to hear about it if any of you have had any experience with them. Mainly, I'm concerned about the Accu-trigger and its reliability. Most everything I've read to this point has been all positive. Just thought I'd go for some feedback from y'all (y'all? - see what marrying a southerner has done to me).

Looking to put a Nikon Monarch 6.5-20 X44 AO on it (will take opinions on that too; although, I already own one in 3.3-10 x 44 AO and love it).

Thanks in advance y'all (argh there it is again!)

Many folks claim that Savage makes junk because of the lower price tag. Look a little closer and you'll see that what's missing is the fancy "buy me" stuff. I haven't found a Savage yet that hasn't impressed me with the accuracy they achieve. The new trigger setup is supposed to be awesome. Savage makes an accurate firearm.
