Unless you have a fast twist 22-250 I wouldn't bother with the big cases. You gain very little useful ballistic advantage shooting the light bullets in the big cases.

If you just want to have some fun with the remaining barrel life, than by all means try the 22-243, 22-6mm, 22-284 or similar; you'll have blast!

Ok so I'm ready for the replys. I had some 284Win. brass and went ahead with form and F.L. dies and necked them down to 22-284. After turning the necks to .014" then annealing I again sized the necks for uniformity, starting loads anyone and other than Quick Load data real range results would be great!

I picked up the dies and chamber reamer at close out prices....I couldn't resist.

Re: 224 Clark

Interesting that I've built four .224 Durham Jet rifles dating back to the 70's and all but the last one got 3500 rounds before accuracy deteriorated where they wouldn't 3/4" or better 5 shot at 100 yds.
always built with Douglas air gage varmint wt barrel in 10' twist. mostly shooting 60 gr Hornady HP
with 40gr of IMR 4831! Current rifle has a Benchmark barrel and has 2500 rds and shoots one hole if I do my part with Berger 64gr match Varmint! I clean every 50Rds shooting Prairie dogs and try not to get the barrel to hot to handle! This case is a 243 with shoulder set back 60thousandths to make neck longer and fireform to 40 degree shoulder! works great here in WY wind without pulling out a 6mm or 25!
