So call me dumb. The way I understand this is if you own a 223 and change barrels to 222 the 223 magazine will feed the 222

The design is older than I am so...

You suppose the 222 was made prior to the 223? My bolt travel appears to be enough to pick a 223 our of a mag if it would fit. The difference in mag size between the two sure limits what you can do with longer bullets on the 223. This all has me thinking about the 204 Ruger being based on the 222 Mag. Isn't the Mag brass slightly longer than the 223?

Right after I bought my 222 I found a take off 223 barrel and purchased it thinking if 222 became obsolete I could change calibers with that and a new mag. At least that is what the seller lead me to believe. Sometime later I read where this is not the case as the bottom metal is different. Go figure...

That could be true. As you know, it is the same bolt head, so bolt and headspace would not be an issue. And the 222 overall cartridge length is shorter than 223, so completed 222 rounds will fit in the 223 magazine. So if you has a .223 and rebarrelled it to .222, you might get the rounds to feed. I have a Savage Model 10, which uses a single feed ramp rather than a magazine that I converted, and it works fine. But on a CZ 527, the longer .223 magazine will not fit in the 222 action--they are different dimensions.

Well the rest of my stuff arrived today. So now have 40gr. BlitzKing, V-max, and tipped Varmagedons. May also pick up some hollow points to try. Got the hex head screws for the action, and bore guide. so this week can start cleaning, and measuring bullets to ogive. Warmed up a little here so now it snowing expecting 6" tonight with drifting so no breakin for a bit yet I will have to be content on getting breakin rounds loaded and a few groups to try. Oh well spring in Wyoming May end up getting A hold of Calhoon on Monday and ordering a single shot follower and a couple of trigger springs as well.

I predict you are going to really like the way that rifle shoots, if it shoots like mine. Good luck!

Bullet seating

Well 3 of the 5 bullets will touch the lands and fit in magazine. Speer 50gr. SP, and both the 40 and 50gr. Hornady V-Max. The tipped Varmegedon will need to be .04 off the lands as well as the Sierra BlitzKing, maybe the hollow point Varmegedon will make it, but don't have any to try at this point. So will do break in and fire forming of 50 rounds with the Speer then try the 40gr. V-Max first.
Any other 40gr. suggestions out there?

Nosler Varmageddon

After doing some research on the web, Nosler lists the Varmageddon 40gr. tipped OAL at .665, and the HP at .565. So given they did not change the ogive for the same weight and caliber the HP is .1 shorter which would easily allow seating to the lands and fitting the magazine. May have to grab a box to try. Sierra does not list the length of their bullets on their site, but if I had to guess they would fall close to the same difference ie. tipped vs HP?

Nosler custom competition have worked well for me. It is a flat base hollow point. I find that flat based bullets do really well at 100 yards.

Yes I am guessing it is tip length on the Nosler and Sierra, the Hornady has a more blunt ogive, so it works.
Would really like to get 40grs. to work. Not that I don't have 2500 50 gr. bullets for 223.
Now just thinking about powders, have H4198, RL7, BENCHMARK, H335, AA2200, which would seem appropriate. Just need to find the right combination. By the way the lot of H335 I have is a grain slower than my first lot. My groups went to s**t using old load so ran them across a chronograph, sure enough 100 fps. slower. added a grain groups and velocity came back. That's Kinda why I look for extreme powders now less lot to lot variation. I know in 3 lots of Benchmark, I have only had to adjust 2-3 tenths and the SD's from this powder are awesome. Usually 10fps over ten rounds
Thanks Flangster
Rick

Measuring

Did some measuring and the longest the CZ 527 222 magazine will accept is 2.200. Not sure it will feed at that length but that is max magazine will allow. One is better of at least .0200 shorter to ensure feeding. So loaded rounds need to be a maximum of 2.180. Would be better if bullets allowed 2.160 or shorter and still reached lands. By the way did you skim turn your case necks?

Wilson dies and an arbor press leave runout at less than 1mm. I'm good. Brass is generally Lapua though, on a buy once-cry once theory. At the end of ghe day, the extra cost is worth it in longer case life and better case to case consistency.
