The .222 was the rage in the 50s and 60s. It set bench rest records for accuracy and is still a very good cartridge: Its just not for me.
i used to own two .222 rifles. The first one was re-chambered for .223 in 1968. The other is a Sako made for Marlin that i bought cheap in WV about 30 years ago. It was also re-chambered to .223.
No, Cotton, I was addressing other posts.
And I think I was clear on why I prefer the 5.56X45 to the .222.
The .222 is a classic, but the .223 is far more versatile.
