    The only Vihtavouri powders recommended by Lapua for .222 are N110, N120, N130, N133 and N135 if your go onto Lapua website and choose .222 you can print off all the above starting and maximum loads for the various bullet heads.

    Kind regards Jimbo

    N140 is too slow for the 222rem

    Reloder7 is the nuts for me in this round.

    Just because you are paranoid, doesn't mean they aren't out to get you......

    +1 for the reloader 7 in .222 and you will be looking about the 21gr mark from memory but check that before you put any rounds down the barrel

    had great groups with a 222 using reloader 7. i did see on some forum in the states that they had stopped making reloader 7 now though ?

    What weight of bullet are you going to use? I use Viht powder in 222 and 223 as supply is more reliable than that of reloader 7

    In 222 for 40 grain V-max I use 22.1 grains of N130 0.3 of a grain under Vihts recommended max load and for 50 grain V-max or blitzkings I use 21.3 grains of N130 0.2 of a grain under Vihts recommended max load.

    The above loads are safe in my Tikka M55 but always start low and work up.

    Ill probably start of with 50-55gr heads then work from there ,the only reason I asked about the 140 is I've already got some for my 243 loads but as some have pointed out its not mentioned with lapua's data sheet.

    Cheers Billy.
