    4198 is the classic powder for teh .222 I believe.

    I use H4198 most of the time but have been known to get the same results with H322.

    About anything that burns will give good results in a .222. I like 4198 but will use BLc-2 for heavier bullets. RL7 is excellent, as is 3031 IMR.~Muir

    I am using H4198 with 50gr V-Max with very nice results.

    Anyone use AA2230?
    A mate just got a .222 and I've got some of this sitting around. There are loads listed with everything from 40gr to 60gr bullets so seems a versatile powder.

    I was given an 8# keg of it a few years back but have only used it in .223. Likewise, a keg of DATA 2200 (Accurate Arms produced) I have been so content with other powders in the Deuce that I haven't bothered to try either.~Muir
