Remember you want something that has a 10 shot removable mag if possible as well.

Weight shouldnt really be a factor with a 22, unless you go for an all out varmint rifle. But don't go too light, or it will be like trying to aim a matchstick. Also, the actual uses of a 22 shtr means tou really dont need a big mag. If you are planning on sending bulk lead, go for a bigger calibre. For single well aimed shots at bunnies etc, well a 10 shot mag shouldn't be an issue.

If using a can in a game harvesting situation a 4 shot mag often does not cut.
Replaceable are the go as damaged feed lips or broken springs are a pain. Having a couple of spare mags is always a really good idea. I have multiples to cover most needs, some configs are 5 shot flush fit and others up
to 15 if needed. Same as having a couple of spare firing pin springs, extractors etc.

I have no rifle shooting skills at range. Just pistol experience, and a little bit of it.
Looking at a first rifle and i want to dive straight into it. The reason why i mentioned 500+ was because i want to buy one (once again only pistol experience and knowledge) and continue to use it. I dont feel as though i should start of with (and just an example) a 22 and run out of range (limited knowledge) and have to buy something bigger. Ofcourse im going to start closer and slowly get up there, but for the time being, it will be prone and killing paper/metal that arnt trying to avoid me.
At the point im getting better i can start incorporating a swing/rotating target.

Just a new challenging hobby as im happy with my pistol scores now. The down side to pistol training, its only done at a range with a paper target. Atleast with a rifle i can take it out on a property and do my own thing

First off I have the Howa in S/S Varmint with heavy Barrel. I bought the rifle with out the stock and put a military style on my self.
Second it is quite accurate. And please don't take offense as none is intended...but  500yd shots are nice but a kill shot for most game past 200mt is not really a good thing. The .308 in the right hands is lethal out to 500-800yds...so sensibly we kill inside of 200mt for the sake of the animal we are hunting. If our shot is not a kill at over 200mt we could loose the wounded animal.

If You want too still shot 500mt then buy a .338 lap or a .300 win mag and the scope to see that distance will be expensive.

For me a .22, .308 and 12g would be enough to bag just about anything. Again the Howa is great and the Savage is also a great gun.

I've always had a soft spot for the 303 SLME and there are a lot around. Anyone got thoughts on that for my large(ish) long(ish) range gun?

Errr, not a bloody smle Rob for god sakes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Get a 22-250 and it will plz you.
50 gns for blitzing and fmj 60 gn for anti what ever you want.
Getting tagged with a 250 or 7mm rem in any bodily part is life altering for most species.
Oh and they are not too hungry on powder.

Yeah we've talked about 22-250 before, I'll research that again.
