    22 magnum

    The old man is after one for bunnies in Central Otago.

    Modest budget of $500 excluding scope.

    Thanks.

    Most of the guys down there have either gone 17HMR or 223. Personally I like the magnum, but with ammo costs being similar, the 223 has better "legs" for the same bucks. I do have a 22WMR I am looking at selling but unfortunately it is nowhere near your budget.

    I have one for sale well under your budget, but a long way from Central Otago.

    I'd grab the Anschutz if I were you- I've got one. It's very accurate! Clean the bore though after every 20-30 shots if you get one. The bore is subject to copper fouling.
