Almost all factory 22-250 barrels have a 1-12 twist rate,and usually the heaviest factory ammo for them is 55gr bullets,which is also about the heaviest weight of bullet the 1-12 will stabilize.

I prefer a 223 with a 1-8 or 1-9 twist rate,you sacrifice some velocity with a 223,but you have a wider range of bullets/weights that you can accurately shoot out of it.

I had a tc venture and loved it but just sold it to a friend to buy this bad boy!!!

Got this Dimension rifle in 30-06 but it can shoot 8 other calibers with a simple barrel, bolt (if needed) and mag change.. (New calibers to come too!!)

You can get it in 22-250 then buy the other parts to shoot 223 also.. Real cool design and check out the accuracy.. The pic below was the first 11 shots through the gun.. I popped on a scope in 20 min and ran to the range with a few friends.. At 30 yrds I had as little as 1/4" moa! And this was shooting cheap paruvian partisan ammo also..

T/C is a very over looked company that makes awesome shooting American produced firearms with great price tags.. I paid 604.99 for mine..

Also the dimension is light!!! My old venture was a heavy typical bolt action.. This will be east to hike with for deer no prob..

30 yards??? I'm from the Island But have been shooting all my life. You should have had 1 single hole!! TC made some great rifles till they were bought and taken out of NH. That is not a target I would be proud of at 200 yards, never mind 30. Sorry, JMHO.

Looks like it was sighting in with adjustments on the scope reflected on the target.

But to the poster of the pics, that would not be 1/4 MOA at 30 yards. To be roughly one MOA would be one inch at 100 yards. A quarter inch at 25 yards is roughly one MOA. A half inch at 50 yds is roughly one MOA. A quarter inch at 100 yards is roughly one quarter MOA.

I shot the 11 bullets in prob 3 min including reloads.. Just wanted to shoot the gun.. Also I don't have a proper level bench to use.. Just leaned the gun on my bag and bent down to the stock..

Oh and my indoor range that's 10 min from my house is only 30 yards.. Wish I was closer to the ranges out east..

Like I said too it was crap cheap ammo.. If I was taking my time, had custom reloads, and the right shooting bench, I wouldn't be happy with the group I got..

Call the Nassau county complex (Hempstead turnpike) and see if Jack Pearson is still alive. He will get you on track in short order. Last time I saw him was 1984. BTW, L.I. is only 99 miles long. Bellmore is 30 miles in. You could jump on the Expressway or Southern State and shoot within 45 minutes.

strictly for coyote, either would work quite well. Marlin offers both in a heavy varmint barrel version, the XS7VH priced at $396 MSRP. i have the 308 XS7VH. danged accurate and very well made.

if you were wanting to engage mountain lions i would think about going a bit larger in caliber and power.

might think about going with the 308 anyways. lots of people hunt coyotes with a 308.
