In my opoinion it is the best of the .22 centerfires. I think I've owned 4 or 5 of them, and will certainly own more in the future. Each of them I put together it seems I have someone who just has to have it after a year or so after they see how it performs.
Lot's of experience with it. What purpose did you have in mind when you bought it?

I am very high on the .22-250 as a midrange shooter. The ballistics are superior to the .223 but cost is proportional to performance. With a bolt gun you won't burn through the ammo you might with a gasser so that may wash the difference. Go with what you have and sell / trade if you get bored or unhappy. Guns hold their value better than just about anything on the planet, especially if you are a gunner!
I have had a few over the years, and it is my favorite varmint round. If you are planning on using it on varmints I don't think there is a better 22 cal out there. If you plan on shooting paper or steel swap it off for a .223 alot cheaper to shoot!
i have to of them a new rem 700 vsf II and an old rem 788 and they are about the best varmit rifle you can get an easy coyote killin bullet out to 400 yards with enough punch to keep them down. i have even used mine to hunt deer with just gotta be careful and have good placement cause its not very forgivin on a deer
Glad to hear that everyone is really happy. The barrel is an after market. Not sure who made it. No symbols just a couple of numbers. Some one told me you can check the twist roughly with the cleaning rod by measuring a full turn and how long it takes. Anyone else ever try that? I will post pics after I pick it up on the 26th. California blows!!
I've spent a bunch of time finding what mine likes as far as loads go. If you ever want to start loading for it I'll give you everthing I have learned as far as the load and the trajectory in MOA. Just Monday I did 50 yard increment targets from 200 yards to 400 yards. I don't have my notes with me right now but I remember I only had to dial in 5 MOA at 400 yards with a 55gr. SGK. Who wouldn't be happy with that?
I have a 20 year old 700 BDL that shoots [email protected] with handloads. For the hell of it I decided to try Winchester 45 grn HPs from Wally World for $23 (for 40!). Also 1/2" groups!! No need to reload anymore lol!
Try H380 with 40,50,55 gr Ballistic Tips. You'll like the accuracy and destruction on Varmints. The Sierra Blitz King and Hornady V-Max also shot real good. These weapons shoot very flat and fast with very little recoil. Good Luck
