I will mostly be punching paper, but may reach out and touch the occasional varmit should the need present itself.
I would go with a .223. With my 1 in 9" 700 LTR the accuracy is great with 52, 55 and 69 grain match bullets. A 1 in 8" should be good for 77 or 80 grain bullets. Also have a 1 in 12" SPS Varmint that is very accurate with 52 match Sierras.

Also , I've been able to put together accurate loads without a great deal of load development and trial and error. The .223 in my experience with 4 rifles and 2 TC Super 14s is very easy to load for accuracy.
