The .223 is a fine medium range varmint round. I really have no use for shooting the bullets above 55 grs. on prairie Dogs or coyotes. The 22-250 simply has a larger engine and can push a bullet farther with more terminal energy.
No legend here for me lol.
Actually, what tends to go is the first couple of inches of the throat/chamber. When I couldn't afford a new barrel' I'd take the barrel cut off two inches chamber side, re-chamber it and continue to march on.
