Slightly OT - .222 Super



Log in to see fewer ads
Any of you Martini guys recognize this cartridge designation? Can you tell me anything about it? I've located a customized Martini Cadet chambered for the cartridge and am trying to learn more about it before deciding whether to buy it. The seller says he was neck sizing using a .222 or .223 die and a .38 Special shellholder. I'd like to know whether brass is available and how to locate some, as well as ballistics, etc. Is this the same as the .222R?

Try looking at this:

Bertram brass is available from Midway in 222 rimmed, you'd need to fireform. According to the article, you could also use 357 MAX, but I'd bet the loss rate would not be acceptable.

222 super

that is what they call a .222 rimmed ,it was a wildcat in the 60's over here in oz i think? almost the same size as a .222 remington ,(uses the same dies like you said) i am building a rifle on the same case.
brass is avalible through grafs i think,and maybe buffalo arms http://www.buffaloarms.com/browse.cf...atid=35&step=2 bertram brass make it here in australia i am waiting for them to make more in a month or so. i would grab it if i were you but then again thats what i want,they dont come up for sale often here and when they do they go quick
