I have placed a deposit (it should be with me in less than a fortnight) on a Sako A1 .222 and am wondering what to buy to feed it with. I aim to reload for it.
I may be perverse but I did not want a .223, and the 22-250 is a bit barky for what I want, so settled on the .222.
It will be used mainly for fox, crows and the occassional rabbit, although I do have a condition to shoot muntjac with it too.
As yet I have no idea of the twist rate of the barrel. I have read quite a bit about the .222, and they seem to favour 50gr to 55gr bullets, or so the writers claim.
So if anyone has experience of reloading for the A1 I would be immensely grateful to know what you use.
Yours hopefully, Simon
