I considered the doing my Mauser in .223 but went with 22-250. Dont really know why other than factory rounds(Win. 45g hollow points work awesome on varment and frag on impact with anything) but it's worked out pretty good. I'v gotten groundhawgs at 300yrds on the run with it.

If you are just looking to punch a few holes in targets on the weekend, may I suggest a simple .22 LR? They are fun to shoot, cheapo to purchase second hand, and the ammo is a dime a dozen (literally). Plus, it's quiet enough to use in the city if that damn 'coon comes back!

Mauser action does work really well for the 22-250. My gunny has done more than he can count. It makes for a very good weapon. The 250 is also a much better caliber all around than 223.

Just bought a Savage 93V17 Mako, by Talo,.17 HMR Cal., w/ Ncstar 4-12 red dot scope, for a total of $480.00. It's a real sweeheart, and after sighting in scope, I'm getting quarter sized groups at 100 yds.[think I can get it tighter].
I Also have been shooting a Marlin 882, w/ Tasco 3-9 scope, 22 mag. and have shot sub Moa groups at 50 yds, [some same hole]. If you can snag one before they are all gone, the Mako, is a real good choice. I'll be shooting the Mako, a awful lot, at the range.
