One that you have complete confidence in. I don't get caught up in rifle makes or calibers. If the rifle can deliver a bullet of sufficient energy into the kill zone, it will do the job.

As for me, that rifle is an old heavy barreled Ruger M77V with tang safety, chambered in 22-250 topped with a Leupold 6.5x-20x scope, shooting 55 grain Sierra Blitzking bullets I handload.

Mine has a Colt lower with a Geissele SSA-E trigger and a White Oak Armament Varmint 18" Upper with 1 in 7" twist. It consistently shoots 10 shots in less than 1/2" at 100 yds. On top it has a Bushnell AR/223 tactical 4.5-18x40 mm scope with Warne High QD rings. It is a tack driver. I also put a Custom Turret Label on the elevation turret which is calibrated for 65 grain HPBT Sierra Game Kings.

I have an old Rem. 700 BDL (1972) in 6 mm Rem. with Leupold 4-12 VX-2. This rifle covers everything. I use an 85 gr Sierra BTHP. It shoots a dime size group at 200 yds. I glass bedded the barrel and action. I have taken yotes, deer and hogs all in the same day on the same stand.
