OK I was told this rifle was a 222 but come to find out it is a 222 Mag. Sako action with integral bases and Vixen bull barrel, The stock is a beautifully inlayed custom thumbhole with awesome figuring. MUST BE SEEN(pix do no justice), I give it an 11 out of 10 A steal at $1800 PART Trade considered

The some trades considered would be Winchester Model 94(pre 64) in 32 Special, Marlin JM in 35 Remington, Cheap 223 bolt gun(Axis etc.) Mares Leg in 44Mag or 45LC or 243 in a A Bolt II, Vanguard OR Model 70

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....
