Re: Whats the best caliber of rifle for varmits?
I would look at a 22-250 or 243. 25-06 is another good choice, but would definitely have to be a reloader as ammo is harder to come by.
Still alot of other factors that come into play though, as RC eluded to.
What range are you anticipating and how much shooting do you plan on?
If you plan on alot of shooting, then go with a caliber that is readily available if you don't handload.
