Thanks John,I have an older Rem.700 Heavy barrel that I bought back in the 60's that shoots better than any out-of-the box gun I have ever owned. I have a 24x Leupold on it. Always looking for another accurated load. Steve
and...before the .22-250 was legitimized by Remington, it was called the .22 Varminter among other things...my cousin had a high grade BRNO Mauser in .22 Varminter with double set triggers in an English Walnut rollover stock he had crafted himself to a very high standard and topped it off with an Untertl scope....it was something to behold!!
I've had a .22 BR and wasn't impressed with it. A .222 Mag Improved is justa s good ballistically, the cases are much cheaper and you don't have to full length size them to keep the bolt handle closing easily. The BR cases will definitely get tight if you don't full length size them.
