I'm looking for some input from those who have had experience with these please.
I'm wanting to complement my .243 (roe deer rifle with 87 grainers) with a 22cf rifle for fox, rooks, crows, etc, but also as a backup roe rifle here in Scotland (backup only).
I almost settled on the .223, but then started thinking whether I should be going 222, 22-250 or 220swift. I'll be shooting out to around 250-300yds with them max I think...
trying to think of benefits of either,,anyone willing to put a few Advantages/Disadvantage points up?
I also don't want to be getting something that's 'too close' to the .243, but do want something that will comfortably handle a 50 or 55g pill and have dead hold to around 250yds without burning too much powder.
sorry for asking this, I know it's been covered a trillion times, I just really struggle with this decision, so need help!
