I bought a Remington model 700 bolt action .223 yesterday. I've been wanting a varmit-type rifle and ammo for a .223 is cheap and - for now at least - available everywhere. The rifle has a heavy 26 inch barrel and I'm looking forward to taking it to the farm and wearin' out some groundhogs. I'd been looking on-line and believe-it-or-not, the cheapest price I found was at Cabela's. Plus, I had some gift cards that were burning a hole in my pocket. The .223 round may not be as sexy as some of the other varmit rounds, but I believe it will work fine for me. I have a couple of old .22s, but my eyes and my aim aren't as good as they used to be and I wanted something that would reach out a little farther. What caliber of varmit rifle do y'all have?
