Re: .222 Remington - Converted to ??

I really like the .222RM, there are probably a dozen other rounds that will do the same thing or very nearly so, but they just aren't the same to me. It does everything I need from a .22 centerfire, you don't see one every time you turn around either. I was originally attracted to the .222RM because I collect things from 1958 and that is the year it was born. I'm kind of eccentric when it comes to rifle calibers anyway. FWIW I have looked at the .19 Badger too and ended up going with a .19 Calhoon.

I feel the same way, there has always been something apealing about the .222 RM I dont like bing just like everyone else. I use to collect old boxes of Cartridges. Usually found the ones no one ever bought hidden on the back shelf of some old hardware store........the .222 RM was one of them along with such like the .351 Self Loading, .220 swift, .219 Zipper, .32 Rem, 32-40 and the great 7x61 sharp and hart.

I shot a 22 Hornet for some years ..............out in Nevada we shoot ground squirrels on alfalfa fields. It was my favorite especially with the 30gr. Calhoon. So when I lost permission to shoot on this one ranch because they sold out, James Calhoon talked me into it.

He did a great job on my CZ.........and its a real shooter. I put a 6x-18x on it ............

Right now Im looking for a power for my .243 AI shooting the 95gr VLD.............
