I thought I'd stir up a little grumbling here.

What is the fastest varmint round out there?

And what is the most accurate?

Or are they one and the same?

:) Just to get the fur flying on a slow and quiet Friday at work...

Well Robert, I am sure some will take exception with me, but I have two 220 swifts. One is a custom job on a mauser action, Douglas semi bull barrrel with an old K-10 Weaver when Weaver was tops. I have had that gun 30 years. I never loaded it too hot. That is the reason it still shoots under an inch at a 100yds. My other Swift is a remington 700 classic. That little spit fire will shoot a 52gr. hollow point a mesured 4300ft/sec. It has also shot groups as small as .13 in./100yds That is too hot a load to shoot on a regular basis.
The gun I shoot ground hogs with now is a 6mm in a ruger #1. It shoot 1/4 inch groups with 65gr V-maxs.

With so many new short and supper short mags along with .17 cal, I don't know what caliber has the speed record. But I DO KNOW THAT 220 IS KING :)

In the real world I think a Swift is still king, I have a 22-250 that does 4200 with 40 gr bullets, a 22-243 will do 5000 I hear, but you couldn't prove it by me. Larry
