    shoot 60gr hornady soft points in a 1:14 barrel keeping the speed down to just below factory speeds
    it is testing the twist rate and on paper shouldn't work

    would love to see how 62gr works out

    In my present Renington 722 thats chambered for the 222 REM I shoot anything from 40-52 grains .

    In some of the 700 BDL Varmint Specials I had I shot mostly 52-55 match bullets as they were mainly for punching holes in paper .

    My maternal grandfather used that 722 222 from 1958 until his death 6 years ago . He shot 45 grainers the entire time . Killed many many many groundhogs . Back in the 50's 60's he killed even more hawks with the rifle . And over the course of years he killed a few deer and turkey with the gun . He shot one of the largest bodied deer I ever saw alive in my life with said rifle . That was about 1970 I think , he always brain shot them and the caliber made little difference .

    Sako Arrow and Gamehead 50 grains are great and Prvi PPU 50's come very close too in my CZ.
