I will confess that this fight came to me practically gift-wrapped thanks to readers, and friends, Cam and Joel, who submitted the contestants—and even the cute name. "My friend and I decided to give you a match up fit for a varmint king," Cam wrote to me. "Joel and I had the pleasure of knowing an older shooter named Mike, an accomplished marksmen and a handgun hunter. One of the few rifles he kept was a German Anschutz in .222 Remington. He spoke highly of the .222 saying that it was more accurate than he was. We were teenagers when Mike passed away in 2009, but his lessons and passion survive in the shooters that he helped mentor. Joel was lucky enough to buy the Anschutz from Mike's son. I had to satisfy my urge for a .222 varmint rifle with something else."
