    i find the best round for killing them instantly is the 22-250 it takes them right down with one shot

    If you reload 221 fireball i think rem is now loadeding it in the 700, but for a cheap farmgun i have Nef 223 with a 3x9 scope smoke few coyotes and groundhogs with as for the coons shot many over the old coon hounds with 22 shorts

    I have to agree!:tu I like the .223 cause I like AR's but both the 22-250 and 243 are excellent choices!:tu :tu

    You can't go wrong with a 22-250
