I was just looking at the round as a 22 that i didnt have and may want to get it certainly seems to have the steam behind it. I think i read somewhere on here that Kirby allen played with it when trying to make a 224 allen mag. I have seen the 223 wssm in an ar platform and the gun shot very good at longers distance i was just thinking good barrel and builder and heavy bullets it could have some real long range potential that cartridges like the 223dont have and could be better than some of the other hot 22's like a weatherby rocket ,swift or 225 winchester or the necked down 284. just food for thought
you need to look at the .224 Vias. It'll push an 80 grain bullet at about 3700fps with ease, and barrels are good for about 1400 rounds

+1 or even a 22-243 middlestead, 22-6mm AI, or 22-284, all fast moving powder burning, barrel eaters.

Not much info out on it but a 22x47 maybe a good choice, looks like you could get 3700fps with a 70gr.

Don't know. Not to much out there to make a call. Kevin Weaver @ weaver rifles has one he just built up for him self. But based on the other choices I would say it is the best for barrel life. About the same as a 22-250AI as far as case capacity goes.
