Your new 22-250 will work very well. Find the load that will put all the bullets in one, ragged hole and go out and wage war on those yodel dogs!

22-250 is my favorite. No recoil, fast, hits hard. IF you donít reload try Hornady 55 Vmax.

22-250 seems to be the most popular, load with the 65gr SGK and you will do fine.

The 17 Remington is my favorite. Flat shooting, see the impact, no fur damage, mild report, makes a lightweight carry rig. All good.

I always found that round intriguing. Do you lose a lot of animals?

My favorite as well, and have never lost an animal that was hit. First couple coyotes I hit with it still stick out in memory, one 60 yards in the eye, no exit but gray and red matter out the nostrils, ears and eyes. The second one was 297 yards according to the range finder, hit in the gut it flopped down and never even flicked its tail.

The rest since have died in about the same bang flop dead style. Now I will say that mine is a fast fro the round, factory ammo clocks 4250fps out of my barrel and have reloads doing the same. Got lucky and its chamber is very near min SAAMI dimension

very seldom. Most of them drop in their tracks like hit by a photon beam. I had a squirrel run 10 ft without any internal organs. They were all sucked out of the tiny exit hole. I saw it in the scope walked over and couldn't believe it.

Very seldom shoot past 200 yards due to terrain and neighbors and 90 percent of my shots are between 80 and 125 yards so 223 Wylde works great for that and is easy on my shoulder.
