New Rifle, What a Deal!

1625 33
To preface this post, I have been looking hard at getting a 22 caliber centerfire rifle for a couple of weeks now and hadn't quite decided between getting a .223 or a 22-250. I almost pulled the trigger on getting a used Remington 700 VTR .223 earlier this week but decided against it, partly because I hadn't heard positive things about the stock and partly because I thought it would be more responsible of me to wait a month or so and to be more frugal. Well, once I saw this deal today all prudence went out the window...

Here is what I got for $400.

Savage 12BVSS .223[stainless, fluted heavy barrel on a laminated stock]
Harris Bipod
Plastic hardshell case
4-16x50 Nikko Stirling Scope[decent scope though I plan on getting a Leupold VX-II]

As an added bonus, the guy gave me 100 rounds of Remington UMC 223 rounds and also 60 rounds of PMC Bronze 223.

:Blasting_ :)

223 or 22-250

Having owned both at one time I like the 223 better because of the availabilty of reloadable brass. One think that you have to watch out for is the weight of the bullet should match the twist of the barrel. Shooting the heavier bullets it a slow twist (12 or 14) will cause high pressures.
My weapon of choice is a 700 VS with a 36x Tasco scope. This set up works for me as I only shoot at the bench anymore.
Good shooting
