Got an itch for a new rifle but can't decide what to get. I currently have a 6.5 creed and 30-06 in bolt guns, a 35 Rem and 30-30 in lever guns, 22s and a 17hmr. I'm leaning towards a tikka varmint in 22250 or a tikka CTR in 308. What says the THF?

The 22-250 definitely fills a gap in your quiver.

Rather than focusing on different calibers, I've built my collection around different brands in a smaller range of calibers. This way, I can use the same ammo in different models.

Why not go with the 220 Swift?

Like stated above...you're missing a .22-caliber hotrod. I think you need want a .22-250 or a .220 Swift!

Another vote for 22-250. Convert my target rifle from a 22-250 to 308. While I don't regret it overall because the 308 is vastly superior I the wind at range for a newbie like me. But I still really miss having a 22-250.

I've thought about it but as of now I don't handload so I don't think I'd get the most out of it.

This is what I'm thinking too. The only reason I lean 308 is because there is ammo EVERYWHERE.

The 22-250 definitely fills the gap or a 6mm CM running lighter bullets. P_102

I've never understood why people purchase odd-ball calibers (yes, I'm classifying the .22-250 as one). Ammo is harder to find, more expensive, less options & isn't any more impressive than more mainstream cal.'s.
Having said that, an AR in 6.8 is nice to have! bolt

22-250 is good, but how can a grown man not have a 7.62 x 51?????????
