    what caliber, brand, and bullet would be best 4 very accurate longer shooting?

    You have to experiment. Every gun likes a certain type of ammo better than others. By the way, how far is "longer"?

        Hunterd22,
        Ya'll must be from out west. Cant really help you much for that distance, NW PA is pretty heavily forested and i dont do much shooting across fields.

              Thats a pretty hard one to answer, I have been reloading for around 10 yrs and most rifles shoot different bullet, powder and charge weights different. You will have to do some experimenting like Smitty said. Buy a reloading manual and read up.

                  You can get reloading manuals from just about any gun shop and from gander mountain. Also try ammo makers, I do know that hornady offers all sorts of information regarding reloading.
                  Have Fun,

                    I think there are a couple of variables that have to be ironed out here. For instance: What (game) are you shooting? How sensitive are you to recoil? and What is your price-range for a rifle and scope set-up? There are many rifles, cartridges, and bullets that are capable of excellent long-range shooting. If you can answer those three questions, then we'll be on our way to narrowing down a good combination for you.

                      Well Idc bout recoil. And I want a lower caliber rifle. Cause I already hav a .30-06. So now I'm looking 4 a varmint gun. Preferably under $700

                        I recommend getting a .22-250. Destroys whistlepigs and crumples song dogs.

                            You cant go wrong with a 22-250 or a 223 the 204 is ok but the bullets are to light for me. Any major bullet manufacture for a reloading manual. Try cabelas or your local gun shop that sells reloading equipment. Look on line on Amazon books for reloading manuals. I have a few different ones, Barnes, Nosler, Speer, and Hornady they all have a wealth of info in them.

                              Will the .223 rem be much different from the .223 WSSM??
