    .222

    thanks for knowlegable input, much appreciated, I am a recreational stalker and shoot for freezer and friends...i reload for .270 .22-250 ( new gun after xmas) and dabbling with .222....the .222 seems to hit harder than .22-250, thinking it dumps all its energy in the deer rather than punching through? had a few runners with the .22-250 and lost confidence hence the ne 1:9 twist 22-250 to throw some heavier pills... regards Lee

    .222

    the sako are factory...and the paper is like a shotgun....I loaded a few v max using benchmark (50gr) and they were grouping well but im after a more meat friendly bullet head...I shot a roe yesterday with the federal which dropped to the shot at 150 yards. I bought the gun and 40 federal and 60 sako for £100, then spent £400 screw cutting it and fitting it with a new SL5 mod....starting to really like the .222

    Calibre Advice

    just about to buy a 1:9 twist 22-250 and looking forward to pushing the bounderies lol, but my go to foxing gun at the moment is my trusted Abolt in .270 with 110gr Vmax....set at 1" high at 100 yards its point and shoot to best part of 250. On a plus side if on the way home at day light and a freezer filler shows up its just a change to 130gr sst which suprisingly just shoots 1" higher at 100 yards than the lighter Vmax. Can't wait to get the new 22-250 though, just need to sell my old 22-250 to make a slot. regards Lee
