.222 Loads

Hey .222 guys, what loads have you guys tried and what do you like. Just getting started with the .222, my first load will be Nosler 50 grain BT's with 21 grains of H322. Thanks

21.0 gr. of IMR 4198 with a Nosler 50 gr. Bal. Tip sparked by an R-P 7 1/2 primer. Winchester case, neck sized only with the neck ID reamed. Have clocked it at 3300 + from a Kimber 84 with a 22" bbl. on a hot summer day. Bug hole to 1/2" groups all day long at 100 yds. A load for my rifle only as it exceeds most modern manuals.

Re: .222 Loads

Blc2 and h335 with 50 grainers. I am getting 3179 out of a 20 inch barrel with h335 and groups around .3. I am using a mixed lot of junk federal brass. If anyone has any remington .222 brass that they want to get rid of send me a pm.

222s aren't very fussy at all. I would bet that you could shoot any powder between rl7 and blc2 in your 222 and it would print sub moa.
