    a lot more in bits!

    rifle - 400-450 (threaded?)
    scope - 75
    mounts - 75
    Comp seater - 75
    dies 20-40+ depending on brand
    brass 35/100
    lead 15-20

    the job lot price would probably make you cry, but certainly make you think twice of selling!

    It's sad but I think the .222 is being bypassed in favour of the .223, so this calibre is harder to shift.

    Looking at Guntrader, there are now only about 80 .222's up for sale, and 2/3rds of these are secondhand. There are 250 .223's, most of which are new.

    Add to the picture the cheaper cost of .223 ammo, and the ease of getting once-fired .223 cases for free or next to nothing. Times are looking tough for the .222, particularly when very few rifle types are available for it.

    It's a sound secondhand bargain, but the selling price will be disappointing. I would keep it, BK.
    If I'm going to be accused of it then it's just as well I did it.

    I bloody love my .222 and have just chopped in my old 243 to get it. Factory ammo is easily available and costs the same as .243, so I`d be in no hurry to part with it.

    Added to that, is the fact that the 595 is the sweetest rifle I`ve shot.

    i totally agree, factory ammo is readily available and reloading components are just as easy to find as 223,
    add to that the fact that its harder to find a load that doesn't shoot well in a triple and also there is a definite resurgence in the popularity in this fantastic calibre, I own a 55 year old Sako which is far more accurate than I am. I will never sell it and can't understand anyone who parts with one or even worse when they rebarrell a perfectly good 222,
    just my totally biased opinion
