varmint rifle

  1. Do it all optic

    Rifle, Shotgun and Handgun Scopes
    I'm looking for some opinions on a rifle scope. This optic will go on a cz527 currently chambered in 223 that will be rebarreled for 6mm-222 in the future. Im looking for something that can pull predator duty to 400-500 yards, pig hunting duty at 50-125 yards, and spend most of its time on the...

    Rifles and Rifle Cartridges
    Hello all, I am looking into my first "long range" rifle ever and Im looking for some advice. I don't really plan on hunting, I just started reloading this month, and I mostly just plan to shoot steel but a p-dog hunt with relative in Texas isn't out of the realm of possibility. I own a few...
  3. H&R ultra varmint in .223

    Rifles and Rifle Cartridges
    Looking into getting one for coyote work. What is the rate of twist? can'y seem to find that info. What bullet size would stabilize best in that twist? Got a recommendation on a scope in $150-200 range? Also looking at a Savage package gun in that caliber...not real hot on the supplied...
  4. 378 Weatherby varmint rifle??

    According to the Speer reloading manual, they didn't post any loads for the 235 grain bullets (for the 375 winchester, I believe) because they would behave like varmint bullets on big game at 3400fps. Am I the only one interested in the concept of a 235 grain varmint bullet? :eek:

  6. Remington 700 VTR .243

    Rifles and Rifle Cartridges
    Does anyone have knowledge with the Rem. 700 VTR in .243 Win. ? How is the accuracy? Another concern of mine is the 22" barrel with muzzle brake seems that it might fall short in the velosity department.
  7. Remington 700 sps varmint advice

    Rifles and Rifle Cartridges
    Iv been thinking of getting a varmint/paper gun for some time now. I came across a Rem 700 sps varmint at the local Dick's sporting goods for $499. I dont think it has an x mark trigger like the vtr series does but it does have the same stock and has a heavy barrel. My question is do I spend...
