    I havent shot it a whole lot yet, got about 60 rounds through it but i like it so far. The action is very smooth, mine has the black synthetic stock with a bushnell 3-9x40 scope up top. Ive yet to fire it at distance of more than 100 yards. When i get my lead sled solo in from bass pro im gonna take it out and see how far out i can hit with it.

    Id never fired or been around a 22-250 when shooting before i got mine and was surprised the recoil is very little but it makes one helluva pop when shot. A very sharp crack really.

    If you shoot deer with it try not to shoot bone. The round will explode when it hits.

    I shot 5. 4 dropped on the spot 1 junped over a brush pile and died. All within 100 yrds it does fine. I probably wouldnt trust it over that though

    I will agree its not the best, but to what extent would one say is enough. Most kids around here get their first kill with a .223.

    I dont belive any thang under 243 should be used to kill a deer size game not saying a 223. Or a 22-250 wont I just recommend 22. caliber rifle should be used for deer not trying to disrespect u but that what I belive

    No disrespect I was just making a comment most people on here consider a .243 to small. My take on it is all calibers have there limits.
