PostSubject: bought a .223   Sun Jan 23, 2011 7:54 pm

Went to the RK Gun Show here in town this weekend, and walked out with a new .223 New England with a Bull Barrel. Took it out to my buddy's farm and I am impressed! That's the first .223 I've had. It's not loud, and it's a flat shooter! I'm going to replace the Bushnell scope it came with and get a Leupold on it. Even with the jacketed hollow point 65 grain bullets (which can vary being consistant) it held a 1/2" group at 100 yards. I think if I put some V-MAX through it, I'll have the holes touching! Going with that rifle saved me about $700 compared to the brands I was looking at, and I think I can hold my own on a shooting bench against them.

Wana bet? LOL just kidding. I have a buddy that has one and it is a little shooter. Does yours have the synthetic stock with like the thumb hole pistol grip?

Mine has the wood stock and grip. A little heavier than the synthetic, but with that bull barrel I think the wood stock balances it out a little more.

I just picked up another 22-250. Not sure if ill like it better then the T/C. Its a Remington 700 varmint with a 22'' fluted barrel.

I had one a while back, it was a good gun but got heavy as hell trying to carry it. The way I like to walk in and hunt it felt like it was dislocating my shoulder so I traded it off.

Mine is the light varmint, it weighs less thin my T/C does, its pretty sweet.
