Mine was a Sako Vixen and BL-C(2) was the only powder I ever considered for reloading. Life was good.

Had one with wood stock and another with black synthetic stock. Neither one were very picky about what it shot good.
45-55 gr bullets
Not bad on fur either

Picked it up. Clean shiny bore. 1974 manufacture date I believe. I removed the rear sight and put some integral Talley rings on it. I need to decide on glass.

Trigger is light and crisp. It's the original walker trigger. It's not bedded, but the barrel is pretty much floated. One snug spot, but a piece of copy paper slid through with a little wiggling. Anxious to put some glass on it and see what I can do. Thanks for the encouragement!!!!

I put a Burris scope on and did a quick sight in with some factory 50 gr v-max that I have on hand. The lowest hole was at 50 to see if I was on paper after bore sighting it. Next shot at 100 was high and right (not pictured), the next was right above the orange dot. I shot 4 more for a group. Couple strung low. I don't know if that was me or the barrel warming up. I didn't let it cool between shots. And I didn't check to see what order the hits occurred. At any rate, it'll put the smack down on a coyote if I can find one. So far, I'm loving it.

Looks good! And you'll find you don't need to cool the barrel with that few shots..The deuce is my favorite on the gopher killing fields where we may fire hundreds of shots in a day.

I've owned ONE 222, it was a Marlin 340....I didn't keep it long as a friend in Montana wanted it real bad for his daughter....
so I gave it to him..

I shoot a lot of 223, and its not uncommon for me to use 222 load data in a 223....

so for those of you who handload and have owned both rounds....

is a 223, with 222 load data, any less, or as accurate as your 222?

I load 223s with any where from 218 and 22 Hornet speeds, up to hot 223 loads...

all both action stuff, as I am a bolt guy, not an AR type of guy...

Just for fun I’m going to take one of the 223 700 take off barrels, and set it back and rechamber it to 222 and then sell it as a take off... smile

Didn't know Marlin ever put their name on the 340...everybody else sure did, so it come as no surprise..

RickShaw: What a cool rig!
I am glad it is shooting so well for you already.
Please keep us updated on your experiences with it.
I have a bunch of 222's and was thinking of recommending a 'handload recipe" for you accuracy wise - but over the decades I have found it just about impossible to find an "in-accurate" loading for a quality 222 Remington Rifle!
One of the most displeasing occurrence's in my life was when I found out that Big Green had quit making Rifles in the wonderful 222 Remington cartridge way back when!
Was that the beginning of the end for Big Green - maybe, I think?

I own and shoot a lot of both 222 and 223, I can always get better accuracy with a 222

My first 222 was a special run BLR 222 .Not a good choice for such a great cartridge . I Did fight that trigger pull .! The action would freeze up in bad nasty snowy cold .That rifle did carry well I thought I would use it when horseback carrying it in a scabbard. If I still had it I would keep though it was a bit awkward at times .
