I have very limited experience with rifles. I am looking for a quality rifle, probably a 22-250 for prairie dogs, coyotes, etc. I need it accurate for several hundred yards. Would you recommend a different caliber? I am looking for one in the price range of a Rem. 700. Obviously, accuracy, durability/reliability, and quality are important. It will not be modified by a gunsmith (I want a quality out of the box rifle because the only modification will be quality optics). I have considered Howa, Savage, Marlin, etc. Any suggestions would be great.
