This is one fun round. :D ;)
I've got a Savage in this chamber and it's my favorite at the range.
Much less punishing than the .30-06 I have. :eek:

Man, another shooter was spotting for me at the range and I shot some junk steel lying on the range for the hec of it and it made quite an impact. I was impressed with the little round. Imagine what it would do to flesh and bone? Varmint zapper indeed.
I like the Savage but I've been thinking about getting something a little more "serious". Maybe competition quality.
Who are the more high-end manufacturers that offer rifles in this chamber?

Oh, and are moly-coated bullets worth it?

You want carnage? Try some 50gr Hornady V-Max bullets. Absolutely devistate jack rabbits.

I use the 22-250 for varmints and silhouettes out to 600m and it's a joy to shoot. The Savage 12 series with the heavy barrel and accu-trigger is a great platform.

Why spend the extra $$'s on another platform if your happy with the Savage?

Just get into reloading and let the excitement begin!:D

Tends to be the reason that 22-250 has been the most widely used sporting round in history.

Take a look at the Sako Model 75 Heavy Varmit, they will be hard to beat.

Moly bullets, not for me, I tryed them when the rage first hit, I had rather clean the copper fouling as the moly fouling. That would be a decision only you can make.

Excelent cartridge, low recoil, devastating preformance on prarrie dogs.

It may not be as accurate as a bolt but I love my Browning 78 bull barrel w/timney trigger and Leupold 6.5x20 vari-xIII.
One beautiful rifle and action.

The best target I ever shot was with a Browning heavy barrel in .22-250: five shot group, with four shots into one single hole, and the fifth just touching.

Is there another caliber that's inherently more accurate?

I have a Tikka model 595 in that caliber, also a Kimber pro-varmint, I use serria blitz in the kimber for explosive results, The Tikka is unfortunatly on the way out[sale] have to pay for other things,But it is every bit as accurate as the higher priced, better[in my mind] looking Kimber.Great round so long as it's limitations on bigger game are accepted.
