Hi Guys, I've been looking at the various .223REM bolt action rifles around that would be good for shooting hares out to 250 metres. I like the .223REM calibre round due to the availability and variety of rifles and ammo. I would choose the stainless synthetics due to high usage and rougher conditions. I am currently looking at the Ruger M77 MKII .223 with the Weatherby Vanguard .223 and Remington 700 SPS as other possiblilties since they are available. Whatever rifle I get I would get the trigger lightened for greater accuracy. What are the advantages or disadvantages of these rifles and what would you recommend? Do you know of any other .223 rifles that would be better suited yet still be in a reasonable price range?
