I had a Howa .223 last year and honestly I just got mad and sold it when getting ammo was such an impossibility.

The reason I went with .223 was because of ammo avaliabilty and cost savings.

I had a 22-250 in my hands yesterday and was getting ready to say, this is what I want.

Then the kid said I bought a .308 because you can get premium hunting ammo OR you can get cheaper paper punching ammo.

I thought about it and said give me the .223

I do know one thing, the next hysteria won't affect me near as much because I WILL be buying ammo on a weekly basis for it.

So, did I choose the right caliber? \:D
