    That looks like a well used 22 mag. That's one caliber I can't believe I've never gotten. I use to use and still have my Savage model 340 bolt action 222 rem. I dusted alot of groundhogs in the early 1980's with that gun. We hunted them during the summer in West Virginia.

    Thanks.

    Yeah, I love my 22mag! Let loose on a couple squirrles but came up short. Still had a great day out though.

    It is well used, I picked it up used about 5 years ago from a local gun shop. He had a sticker on it for $125 in that shape, got him down to $80 and he threw in 100 rounds of ammo. Nice deal!

    I have been looking at getting another vamint gun and 222 crossed my mind. Seems like a nice flat shooting round. Might have to revisit that thought.

    The 222 is good out to about 300 yds with the right load. I use my 22 250 more now that's why the 222 took a back seat.

    Just food for thought, The 222 is a great round and so is the 22-250, i have the 22-250 in a 15" Encore barrel, but just a reminder if your considering a 222 give the 223 a look, alot of times you can find ammo cheaper, if thats even the right word these days.:mad:.

    I love the 22mag, and it seems like the prices have sky rocketed the past few years even on these pipsqeak round, i remember paying the HIGH of $7 bucks a few years ago, now its $15 and $18 some places,
    Thats INSANE to me, hell its like buying a box of my other two favorites 243 & 45-70, the world is GOING TO HELL, QUIK!!!!!
    RANT OVER, great guns guys, i will get some pics up in the next few days of some of my babies, if ya'all want to see'um.
    Thanks, and sorry for the bitchin' :eek:

    Heres a pic of the Albino Big Boar Tusker, along side another Big Boar 45-70 Guide Gun.
    Both are Serious woodswalkin tools, and Great to have when the chips are down.
    Both more than willing & able to inflict serious damage, or to get you out of a jam...
