    I agree on swapping out mounts.

    As far as zeroing goes.... You kind of need to figure about how far out the majority of your shots are going to be and have it zeroed for about there.

    As a general rule of thumb for my hunting If I have it zeroed at dead on at 200 yards, with my 243 which has a similar bullet flight arc as a 22-250. Then I can hold dead on from 100 to 300 yards and generally hit the coyotes.

    If you are shooting factory ammo, most ammo catalogs from the manufacturers will show you how high and low the bullet will be at different distances at usually a short range zero (100 yards) and a long range zero either 200 or 250 depending on the cartridge and how much of a "flat shooter" it is.

    By the way I have 4 of those 700 ADL's and really like them. Mine are in 222, 243, 25-06 and 270. They are all real shooters too.

    I walked in to Wal-Mart a couple month back and they had a 22-250 700 ADL in there case for $200.00. I bought it and put a Simmons 4-12x40 on it with a tripod. Hoping to get out and shoot some coyotes with it this spring.

    I have a new Rem 700 ,, VSSF #2 in 22-250 and topped with a Lup, 6.5 X20 Lup rings and bases .

    Shilling website has a good breakin method IMO ,

    I made a shot today with same gun but generation1 @ 441 yards :sp

    it is a friend of mines gun and I LOVE IT,,

    I will use a tubb firing pine and spring and a aftermarket triggar ,,

    the 223 is O.K. but the RED MIST is impressive with the 22-250,

    also shot several crows from 150 yards to 300 yards this weekend ,,GREAT FUN

    I here Savage has a fine gun but I can't buy one for SOME reason ??????
    just can't get over past fine shooting Rem's
