Interesting... but I think here in MD you need a $200 tax stamp to go suppressed. Plus whatever the additional weight would be, which I am trying to cut down on as much as possible. The 222 was...

I get what you are saying. To me the 204 is louder than a 22-250... it's a higher pitched crack, versus a lower pitched boom.

I found a kind gentleman willing to sell me a 221FB. Already brought...

OK good, I would always want a repeater so then I need to stay on the hunt for a 221 it sounds like.

Lots of great info. That classic up for sale now looks sweet, but does any one know for sure if a classic is drilled exactly the same as older Rem 700's? I don't think a Model 7's mounting screws...

That 16gr / 20 v-max load sounds about ideal.

So I've had a Rem 700 BDL in 222 that has been an amazing shooter for me.

I'm predator hunting with it now, with a special dual extension rail that only fits Rem 700 body guns. IF I were to want...

Wow, looks like that's a fairly valuable piece you have there. Mine is an old (1917 I believe) Savage Sporter in 25-20. I consider it to be in great condition, but I'm no expert on these things. I...
