Re: best caliber for varmits
I am also very impressed with the .204. Picked up a Rem 700 a while back and using the Hornady V-Max and either 32 or 40 g it shoots half inch or less groups. In our late season Doe/Spike hunt, used it to take three doe for the freezer. With it's accuracy, did a under the ear neck shot on them and they dropped in their tracks. Nice hole without tearing up excessive met.
But, the son in law did the same thing with the Win 70 .223 and a 55g lead nose round.
