    222

    My mate is looking for a 222 synthetic/stainless bolt action rifle, he has been told that the major manufacturers dont do this combo, anyone know what his options might be.

    thanks DAVIE.

    Hi Davie my friend Steve a gamekeeper has Tika T3 synthetic stainless .222 as your friend wants so who ever told him that they are not made obviously do not know what they are talking about.

    yeah as jimbo said there is loads of 222 in stainless synthetic variety. i looked at the t3 stainless synthetic but opted for the hunter model as i like the traditional wood and bluing look

    Some .222 "stuff" is getting a bit harder to find, bit less selection and or you pay a bit more for it i.e lapua cases for example. Unless your mate is absolutely besotted by the .222 i'd be inclined to go .223. You can always under feed it and get back to .222 performance.

    You're right there, David, but they don't move or sell as readily as .223 rifles.

    For that reason a used .222 can be a real bargain, as the trade-in values are lower.
    If I'm going to be accused of it then it's just as well I did it.
