Last night I visited the gun club at The Lincolnshire Shooting centre to ask more questions and have a look at what is available in the used rifle line plus price up the general costs of shooting. The 222 Rem cartridge came up as they have a couple of used rifles for reasonable price for this cartridge. So am wondering just how suitable the 222 is for a general use rifle?
I know it would be most suitable for the 100m range practice after all it was always known as an accuracy round. Sierra 52 grn HPBT Match bullets for reloading at priced at less than £20 a box and of course being a small case it uses only small amounts of powder unlike the 270 win case. Depending on powder used 17.5 -26.0 grains so it is ecomonical on powder.
So your thoughts on this please?
