Which manufacturer, length and features would you recommend for gophers at 100-300 yards?
I would go with the 24" barrel for velocity gains over the 20".
An adjustable two stage trigger would also be recommended.
Muzzle brake for spotting shots would also be nice. No need for a spotter then.
One thing good about this board, is that you will get many different opinions, personal likes and dislikes, which gun will do what under which circumstance...my choice is the Bushmaster Varminter 24", this is based on my own personal experience and this is the only one that I have shot...my2¢
Take your pick, flat-top or A2 version
I vote for the Bushmaster V-MATCH 24 no frills upper with a Hogue forend:
Stainless steal barrel
Barrel is triple lapped
2 stage national match trigger
Need I say more?
