I've had a long time love affair with this cartridge after reading about them in magazines and books as a kid. A good friend had one in a M77 varmint and I always longed to have it. He gave in one day and it's been with me ever since. I don't use it as much as I should, and I have a raft of other varmint rifles in various trendy calibres, but every time I get this gun out it never fails to make me smile. Accurate, fast and one of the best long range fox rifles I own. After having the barrel set back, it'll still put 3 shots under 1/2 at 200 yards. I own a very accurate Rem 700 in 6AI and think that I would probably let that go before the Swift. So to all the uneducated and uninformed out there, keep your fast twist 223's and 22/250s, I'll stick with the magnificent 220 Swift.
