.22-250 Suggestions

I'm looking at getting a .22-250 for some predator hunting and I was wondering if you all had suggestions on a brand and model. Not looking at expensive models, but so far I was looking at the offerings from Weatherby, Tikka and Savage. I'm looking for a lighter gun, I'm not into the heavey barrels that most varmit guns have. What do you all recommend?

I have Remington and Savage....My M700 and M7 Rems have 1/14 twist and my Savage 10s have 1/12

All shoot excellent....My suggestion would be a Savage 10 package deal if looking for a little better quality gun.

Currently there is a Rem. model 7 SS in a 22-250 listed in the classified. This may fit your needs

All are good choices, Savage is really doing some nice work lately for the cost of the rifle, however, for the choice I would hands down pick the Tikka. I tried one years ago and am very happy with it, are you set on the 22 250? I have one in 243 that I've used for deer and varmints. Good luck!

I would get the Tikka.

I bought a Tikka last year and am very satisfied with it.

I belive tikka offers one in a fast twist.

Anything 1:9 or faster would let you shoot heavy for caliber bullets in addition to more standard light bullets too. Get the faster twist.

Most 22-250’s are ham-strung by a 1:12 or 1:14 twist that requires light bullets.

Get a fast twist and you’ve got more options.
