Im thinking of moving upto the 223 form the 17Hornet Now i do like the hornet but the wind dont like it even with 30grn bullets . Im wanting to shoot out to 600-700 yrds vermin ,Any suggestions on twist, barrel, length,

Bullet ?

it will also be used for deer where applicable.what are the Tikka tac1 like anyone got or used one ?

If its a bit of a case of another rifle for the sake of it then sure, fast twist .223 flinging 69s or heavier? Ackley perhaps.

If less concerned with barrel life, stuff like 22BR, 22CM would probably be fun...

good move. Factory rifle then Tikka with 1/8. Save the cost of exotic custom build calibres and spend it on stock upgrade.
