I'm currently waiting for my variation to come back to allow me to buy my first .22lr.
I currently shoot CF calibres for deer stalking and air rifles for rabbits, but have joined a club where I can shoot .22lr on a weekly basis and thought it might be fun.
The rifle will be for mainly just target shooting with a bit of rabbit's as well, i'd like it to be not too dissimilar to my tikka t3 (ie not thumbhole etc) so it might be good practice for my deer rifles as well.
Should i go for a short (16in) barrel? and what are the benefits of a varmint barrel in a rimfire?
It will most likely end up being a cz as my budget isnt very large,
Thanks for any help,
