Got me a new varmit rifle today

Postby JMac202 » Mon Apr 20, 2009 8:36 pm

Gonna start getting into hunting coyotes bobcats and numerous other varmits. I picked me up a NIB Browning A Bolt II in .223 WSSM today at Sportsmans Warehouse for 450.00 bucks.

Gotta get me a good scope now then its off to some private land that is full of predators and varmits. So many that they have decimated the turkey population in the area. I cant wait to get out and shoot this thing to get it sighted in. Now gotta save up for a quality scope.


Anyone else shoot the .223 in WSSM?

Good deal!! The A-bolt is a nice rifle. I use my Mauser 98 custom in .22-250 for the coyotes around these parts :yes: It does a number on 'em :)

Do you reload? I'd consider it with the factory ammo pricing. Thats a nice gun for that price. I've never been sold on the modest gains vs. the price of the load but to each his own.

Around here the .223 WSSM is cheaper tan the regular .223. A local gun store sells Winchester Supreme 223WSSM 55Gr Ballistic Silvertip for 21.00 dollars a box. Regular .223 is going for around 30 dollars a box for 20.

I'd be stocking up. Thats a great deal but I'd still save my brass. It won't always be that way. I get .223 for $9 bucks if i buy single boxes.
