220 swift for varmits
Hi, All. I have a custom made FN mauser in 220 swift my father left me . I would like to get into varmit hunting coyotes and what other varmits are around. Is this cal a good one to use , and how hard is it to get factory ammo for it. I have 50 to 60 shells he loaded 20 yrs ago or better. Any advice, He had the rifl built in the 1960's

220 Swift is an awesome varmint cartridge. Ammo for it is still available, but it isn't the cheapest.
