Gun shows? Check out the minnesota weapons collectors shows they are the best IMO.

I agree with Sorno, those shows are really good........The Ace hardware store in La Crosse used to have good deals on used guns along with Monsoor's too. Yeah it is an hour drive to La Crosse, but you could be coming home with a new (to you) addition to the gun safe. Good Luck

may I ask why used? Just curious, There are some nice 22-250 that are very reasonable in price.

My dad picked up a plain jane savage/scope combo for $399, that was from Fleet Farm I believe and was a 243. But i am sure you could find something similair in a 250. If you can afford to I would get a better scope, but could wait until you had the cash.

I shoot a pair of them, one is a FLV12 204 with 26in bull barrel, and the other a 243 Mod 116 with 22in stainless barrel, both have 4-12 leapold scopes. My main reason was at the time i got the 204 was they were one of the only left handed rifles around and like you money was a bit tight. The guns were fairly cheap, but the glass was more pricey, but well worth it. Both shoot very good with my handloads, and account for %99 of my coyotes. Might sneak one or two a year with something else.

I have a Savage combo and I am very impressed with the setup being a sub $ 400 gun including scope.

I'm picking up a brand new Stevens in 22-250 tomorrow. I'm buying from a buddies uncle with an FFL license so it's cheaper then you'd find in a store but I think I'm only paying around $275. It's made by Savage and my buddies uncle ownes the same gun and he said it shoots good. I'm buying for the "cheap" truck gun that can get beat around and I don't have to worry about it not looking nice. I'm sure you could find it in a store for not much more then $300.
