I shoot a Savage but my next rifle will be a tikka I think. That is a list you really cannot lose with though.

Tikka and Sako are BY FAR the better rifles vs Rem700/Savage.

But the 22-250 is a barrel burner....If you want to change the barrel yourself, then go with Savage/Remage.

Agreed.

And yes. .22-250 is a 1200-ish round barrel. I'd look at what twist each has. And if you want it to quickly stop ejecting, get a Savage.

Unless you prairie dog hunt or waste ammo shooting targets it'll take you a lifetime to shoot 1200 rounds through a rifle.

Right. If you never shoot barrel life is not a consideration. Excellent point. hammer

I wish more people would "waste ammo shooting targets." There sure would be a lot less wounded deer that run off and aren't recovered.

You're right, though. Probably the best idea is to only shoot your rifle when you are taking an animal. Only losers practice.

How's learning your rifle/ scope/ ammo on targets a waste of ammo?

I do pririe dog hunt every year, so a barrel get a replaced every three years. They are the same as tires on a truck, they are going to wear out, and barrel makers are building new ones every day.

Personally, I'd consider anything but the Remington.
