What would be the advantage or disadvantage of having one over the other . They seem to be pretty close in performance.
They are very similar - same case - same amount of powder, and both are about equal in range and other capabilities. The .221 is the cartridge that is loved so much that it refused to die when Remington discontinued the pistol it was developed for.
I have had several, and have one now.
Try the rifle as a .221 (all you need is dies) and I think you will love it.
Spring has sprung, da' creek has riz, I wonder where dem kitties is? Here, kitty kitty kitty.
