Anyone have any pet loads for the 222 Remington?
And what powder do you prefer for reloading for the 222 Remington?

My favorite load and powder and the most accurate in my rifle is the 40 grain Hornady V-Max and 20 grains of RelOder 7. One hole groups.

I was thinking mostly baby harp seals, being up in the north, ya know. :p

And I was able to find me some Gunpowder and primers when i went to the big city this past week. Not a big selection of anything, but they did have this Reloader 7, as Cottontop suggested. Any other small rifle powder wasn't to be seen.

IMR-3031-22.5Gr under a 40 Gr Hornet Bullet,yes I know one should not use Hornet Bullets in the 222 Remington,so I had to try them they work just fine for me.

100 yds 3 shots .354 clover my best shots ever!

I use IMR-3031 from 222 to 45-70 and all in-between calibers.

I like Reloader 7 for my 223 loads.

I just finished up making my crude but effective powder dipper to start to reload my 222 brass. A few more days I'll be trying it out and sighting in the scope. Whoot! Whoot!
