Cowboy Varmint Rifles vs Regular Hunting Rifles

Hereís one Iíve been curious about for a long time. What are the fundamental differences between a varmint rifle and a regular hunting rifle?

I know calibers are usually smaller on the varmint rifles and the stocks are usually a little bit heavier, but other than that is there much difference? Are varmint rifles built much better than a regular rifle?

I held a savage varmint rifle with the heavy thick wood stock and I loved the feel of it. I really like the heavier stock and heavier weight of the actual rifle. Those varmint rifles just looked and felt tough. At the same time though Iíve never shot one or been around one being shot so what do I know?
