For shooting colony varmints a 223 cannot be beat. You will ruin a 22-250 in one trip if it is your only rifle. I shoot a 223 AI for the extra FPS. Never feel under gunned out west, I move if I feel I am stretching it to far.

On revisiting this question, as said above, the "best" cartridge will depend a lot on the distances involved. What works for those of us in "the East" will come up short for the really long range targets "out West". With that being said, I think the 223 Rem is a good compromise, especially if it's a 1-8 that will take the heavier bullet weights, but it too will come up short at the really long distances (over 500 yds?), and more importantly, the wind.
