22-250 Remington History
Interesting History Behind the .22-250
“The .22-250 started life as a wildcat cartridge developed from the .250-3000 Savage case necked down to take a .224 caliber bullet. In the early days of the cartridge there were several different versions that varied only slightly from one to the next, including one developed in 1937 by Grosvenor Wotkyns, J. E. Gebby and J. B. Smith who named their version the 22 Varminter.”
The .22-250 Remington is a high-velocity, short action, 22 cal rifle that is most often used for varmint hunting and sometimes small game hunting as well. It can also be used on small deer occassionally too. The .22-250 cartridge has a wider use than the .220 Swift, although the Swift normally outperforms the 22-250 Remington. Due to its wider availability it is a cheaper round to shoot.
