Get a 22-250,
remington has a nice one for about 499.00 (heavy barreled, pre-drilled for scope, synthetic stock. A good varmint gun.
Ammo is a good price too.

Welcome aboard. Everybody has there opinion on varmint calibers but I would say at least a .222 or .223 if you are also going after cyotes.

nothings wrong with the 300 weatherby...
just costs $3 a shot... i shot my mule deer at 463 yards with it in 2006.
i just want something small to have fun with and to be cheap...

ok so the 17 is better than a .204? ive been really looking into them and the .17 looks to be cheaper but i was thinking about getting the .204 right now and then once i moved or could afford it id get a .17 so that way there my girl would have something to shoot... and my younger sis... and for me if i wanted a gun to carry around to hunt with...
