Mega I have a 7mm I want a rifle for varmint and target not so much deer, it would be a nice option but not really important. What about an AR platform nobody has mentioned that?

In that case, I'd opt for a 22-250 or a 225 Win. Fun as heck on paper and the little critters.

I built my 7mm-08 just for this and I couldn't be happier. Now what to build next ? LOL I used a Mauser action,theres alot better out there but it works and I still had some $$$$ left for ammo.

bcunnin1,
I've been itchin to use one of my AR's in the coyote fields and deer woods. Thing is I can't find the time. If you want to shoot a few different types of AR's and a couple different long-range type .308's drop me a PM and we'll see if we can meet up. I have plenty of ammo!!!

I love my Bushmaster of yote hunting, but around here I usually end up in a shotgun area. I would go 243wssm in a Browning A-bolt, I had one and they shoot really good. The factory produces 55gr,95gr and 100gr loads. I used it on deer and it works good. If you reloaded I would say 243win. It's been a while, but Browning made a semi-heavy barrel in the A-bolt, almost bought one. The reason I say I had one is a friend borrowed the gun and asked what I wanted for it, I threw out a really high number and he bought it, I did'nt even want to sell it, but if you make a price your obligated to sell if the guy starts counting out $100's.

I have been looking at AR's I like Rock River they also have carried a good rep from people I have talked to. Question now is should I get .223 or get a 308 they make all kinds of AR calibers should I stick traditional or get something else? Can I expect decent groups from a regular AR or would I need to look at the match grade barrels?

I hear if you can figure out how to type on the internet you can figure out how to build an AR just how you like!
