So explain to me Buddy - just WTH is a 222 Mag?
Ain't saying I am familiar with them all, but never even heard of this one?

Perhaps a comparative pix of a regular 222??

Wondering...

Ah. I see.
Found another too:



From left: .222 Remington, .223 Remington and .222 Remington Magnum
So a bit zippier than the 223. Interesting. Even as interesting that I have never heard of this one before now. :Maybe:
Wonder what it's like to find fodder for it these days?

Nice rifle alright. Bet it would be DEADLY on yotes & rats of the sea...
I'd need to win the lottery though... small wink

Cheers,
Nog

It's funny how Remington would release the 222 Remington and the 222 Remington Magnum. I can see the 223 being released due to it's military background making it a sure fire success. I remember seeing a 222 Remington Magnum of some sort at a gun show a long time ago but can't recall what it was. Certainly didn't look like yours does Jim.

Its one of those rounds that should have been given a name a little further from the .222 !!!! something like mabe,.22 heavy magnum .or .22 Rem. belted.
like the ..22-250 to the .220 swift.......a little more distance and imagination !!!!!

What about my FAV OR ITE , The .22-250 with N.Ps.......or the .22 TTH (Texas Trophy Hammer). with 70 gr.Nosler partitions...?????? some time back,there was quite a bit of ''action '' going on with ALL the .22 centre fire rounds as to which was ''perfect for deer size game'' or which was just barely o.k. for chucks , marmots ,ground squirrel.
hell,more than one POLAR bear bled out from a .22hornet in the guts up in NUNAVUT LAND back when IQUALIT(?)
was still known as FROBISHER BAY back in the days of the DEW LINE....

To much machining involved on the bolt. The 223 only requires you to screw the barrel in 2 turns

I had a Remington 40X single shot .222 Magnum 50!! years ago when I was in high school. Accurate and the forefather of the .223.

The .204 Ruger uses the same case as the .222 Magnum, but necked down and blown out with the shoulder moved forward. You could convert .204 cases to .222 Mag so you could shoot the old piece if you want, given loading dies are available.

Or make it into a .22-.204 wildcat with a chambering reamer and custom dies. My brother has chambered a few with 8 twist barrels. Makes a fine longer range varmint/target gun. But, all this is less practical than making a .223 out of it.
