Re: 222 remington

25-06, yes BLC-2, H335, H380 are all ball powders. The BLC2 was a little to hot. H335 was just right for the 222mag, and H380 worked very well in the swift.

I was asking Kiethcandler about IMR4064 for aother powder choice for the swift.

Let me get my story straight. Kiethcandler told me that 4064 was hard on barrels (not throats). Also he made no mention of 4198 but I would put it in the same catagory. We were talking about the swift. The 222 may not have this problem because of lower velocities.

Sorry about the mixup throats vs barrels.

Re: 222 remington

Thanks for all the great info. I am thinking about trying to find a new remington 799 in 222. Has anyone played with this rifle at all.I also may just put a hart barrel on a 700 action.

Re: 222 remington

I'm new to this forum, but I have and absolutely love my older Rem 700BDL in .222. I would look seriously at the .204 if I were buying today, but I'll have to say that this .222, in a nice light - really good carry gun setup (no heavy varmint barrel), with a harris bipod, is just incredibly accurate in the field. It's my best groundhog gun, no question.

I don't have time for reloading. Mine seems to like Hornady custom ammo best, the 50gr V-MAX Mollys that I can buy through Cabela's with points that just naturally accumulate over time on my Visa. It will do one ragged hole groups at 50 and the holes almost always touch (3-shot groups) at 100 with just on older Leupold 3x9! Kills consistenty for me out to 250 yards. If I gave this thing some real magnification or maybe a varmint/BDC type reticle, well... could be sweeeeeeeet!
