222 vs 22 mag
 
I am doing some work for a guy and he has offered to barter for the work. a222 or a22 mag which should I choose ? I spent some time messing with the 222 but have not with the 22 mag. which would be my best bang for the buck so to speak. I do not know that much about ammo availability for either but what would you guys/gals pick it would be like 500 t0 600 $ worth of work.

it all depends on the rifles intended usage. both are great calibers.

need more information on your usage of a rifle and the rifles themselves to give a more detailed answer.

BTW, welcome to the forum and stop over in the Introductions Section and say hello.

The real question is what are the firearms? There is more than a caliber issue when making this kind of decision. Normally the .222 CF would be worth more than a .22 Mag. However if the .22 Mag is a CZ Bruno take down with extra clips the game changes.
Trade for the most valuable rifle, you can always trade for something else.:D

I think ya misread it Tom.

It was a .22 mag, not a 222 mag.

Yeah, lets hear more about the guns. I bought a Savage 22 MAG last year, cost more than 600 bucks.....

I would take the .222 as the .222 can be reloaded and the .22mag cannot.

90% of the rifles I've seen in .222 are classics, but there are a few dogs out there. Check the bore especially the muzzle for wear as bad cleaning habits use to be common. Steel rod cleaning from the Muzzle. Is either scoped? The type and condition of scope can tell allot about the rifle. If you need to know how to cheap test the muzzle, ask.

If the crown is worn, I would probably cut it back an inch, and since any collector value is now moot, rechamber to 223
