Most accurate powder in 222?

Hi guys,
What would you all say is the most accurate powder for use in the 222 Remington?
I haven't loaded for one for quite a while, and my 'go to' powder used to be 748, is this still up there, or are there new powders that work better and give better ballistics in smaller cases.
I know H335 is 748 under the Hodgdon name, so any other recommendations will be greatly appreciated.
Cheers.
MagnumManiac.

Mine likes H-322. I use a 50 gr. Sierra Blitzking and 22.0 grains.

For the last 15 years I have used 4198.
Maybe some one here will inspire me to try some of the newer powders in my rifle this spring.
So far I have been pleased with 4198

I also get great results with IMR4198. Messed around with 3 or 4 others, but always came back to 4198. mtmuley

Re: Most accurate powder in 222?

I've used IMR-4198 with great results with 40g bullets at 3500fps and 55g bullets at 3100fps and both shoot 1/4-1/2 MOA.

IMR-4895 also worked real well for me with 55g bullets, 3200fps and 1/2 MOA.

Overall though, 4198 is my favorite powder. I get good velocity, and great accuracy with it. See no reason to change.

I dont like ball powder either, so 4198 is nice for me.
