i've been thinking about getting a dedicated target rifle for sometime now.
i have a 30-06 and two .22's
30-06 is obviously too big for what i'm looking for.
and i like how cheap the .22's are to shoot.
I really want a bolt action, would a .22 Mag or .17HMR be acceptable for punching paper at say 200-300 yards?
the extent of my target shooting is just excessive plinking at tin cans and other things i find laying around
i have plans of putting a nice scope on it, and probably a bi-pod.
