i have owned several over the years and really enjoyed shooting them. they are a blast to shoot, recoil is mild and they are super fast and accurate. but given that, i would probably suggest the 22-250 as well, simply if you reload, they will get almost as fast, very close in accuracy and use quite a bit less powder to acheive near to the results of the 220 swift. if you don't reload, ammo will be easier to find for the 22-250 and cheaper. barrel life is better with the 22-250 vs. the 220 swift as well, because not near the powder is burned in getting near the same results. as long as you know this and still want the 220 swift, then find one and enjoy it.
i have a 204 ruger and it's a fun cartridge to shoot as well. fast and very accurate. recoil is gentle. reloads easily as well. powder goes a long ways with this small case as well! try it out.
