    22-250 Remington is my favorite varmint caliber. Also one of the most popular. I own 2 rifles chambered in 22-250 Remington. The first is a Remington 700 Varmint and it shoots good with my reloads, and the second is a T/C Encore that I usually just shoot factory ammo out of. If you dont plan on reloading its no big deal because there is a wide selection of factory ammo to choose from.

    I got two of them.

    An old Ruger 77 with 24" Douglas bbl, and a newer stainless steel Ruger 77 MkII with late design synthetic stock. Both great guns for anything from gophers up to Coyotes.

    55 grain Sierras motivated by 36 grains of IMR4064

    I do and i love it.. my ruger m77in 22-250 is by far my favorite gun. Ive grouped 3 shots within a penny at 175yds consistantly. The 22-250 is the perfect balance between the low powered varmints like the 223 and the larger 6mm's and the 308.

    i have had a win model 70 for several years but just started shooting it last summer. its a good round, fast and accurate. i still like my bushmaster varmiter in .223 better because i don't have to work the bolt.

    Ruger No.-1B in 22-250, Remington 700 Classic in .220 Swift, Remington 700 Classic in 22-250(Getting a new Shilen #5 CM barrel to convert it to Varmint Special.) They are all really fantastic shooters. I use the Hornady 55 gr. V-Max
    in the Swift, Hornady 60 gr. HP in the Ruger No-1B, and Sierra 52gr. HPBT in the 700 22-250. All bullets are moly treated. The Swift has a Leupold 12X on top. The Ruger No.1B has a Nikon 3x9 and the 700 22-250 has a Nikon 5.5x16.5.
    These are the top end 22s. Little brothers are Hornets, standard and K,.218 Mashburn, .221 Fireball, .222 Rem and .223 Rem.

    But if I'm really serious about p-dogs, I grab a .20/.223AI with 12x Leupold and send 'em to St. Peter. 32gr. V-Max or 36gr. Berger HP at about 4M really sends them.

    I have a Browning 1885 in .22-250, topped with a Leupold 6.5-20x 40mm Ao with target knobs. I use it for coyotes, rockchucks and gray diggers (California ground squirrels).<br>
    <br>
    I don't use it for smaller critters in target rich environment, like sage rats. I have the same setup in a .223 for that.<br>

    I have been able to shoot a 22-250 for over 40 years,

    Fast, wicked, thrilling, awesome, are some of the words that go with this cal in my mind!

    The loads we shoot, around 3600 to 3650 fps, for a gun with a K2.5 weaver if I can see it all can you say vapor?


    as in vaporize.

    Older Rem 700 BDL Varmint, great shooter. Used to hog hunt around here when it was rural but now it's over and have no place to use it. Anyone need help with doggie control?

    I remember watching my friend clean a groundhogs head off with a Remington .22-250 at about 285 yards - and I do mean cleaned it off. I was very impressed with both the rounds accuracy and power. If I ever buy a varmint gun that will be the caliber I choose.
