    What is your opinion of a 222 ? I use mine to hunt varmit and also take down hogs. 80 grain does the job well out to about 150yds

    Love the triple duce. It is one of the best varmint cartridges every made. Highly accurate and quieter than many of your big boar 22 cal cartridges like the 220 Swift 22-250. Many called it the mini 308 because it looks like someone shrunk down a 308.

    My brother got the Sako L461 from our dad in 222. It is a shooting SOB right there. It has killed ground squirrels out to 350 yards.
