222 Bullets

222 Remington bullets --- Introduced as part of America’s first rimless cartridge in 1950, it was a mainstay in the target shooting scene until its popularity gradually tapered off in the 1970s. (Its case would eventually serve as the basis for the 223 Rem.) Today, the 222 Rem remains a favorite among many varmint hunters, but its relative scarcity in America means you had better handload if you’re going to master the round’s performance.

With its case that accommodates 27 grains, a 222 Rem can achieve muzzle velocities ranging from around 2,600 to 3,400 fps depending on propellant charge and bullet weight. The .224” bullet commonly belongs to one of five weight classes: 34/35 grain, 40 grain, 50/52 grain, 55 grain, and 60 grain. Enthusiast can enjoy loading a variety of the leading manufacturers’ bullets including Ballistic Tip, V-MAX, BlitzKing, TSX, and Varmint Grenade.

The 222 Rem’s tack driving accuracy, light recoil, and fast velocity all make it a fine choice for ground squirrels up to coyote. Whether it’s an ideal round for medium game is still the subject of debate, although its comfortable recoil makes it a natural selection for younger shooters whose frames can’t soak up too much kick. Regardless of its velocity or weight the 222 Rem’s bullet can not be counted upon to conquer even a smaller deer’s shoulder blade, so taking advantage of its superior accuracy to strike a vital organ is key.

    Bullet Type Full Metal Jacket Boat Tail (FMJ-BT)
    Manufacturer Armscor
    Manufacturer SKU 52344

    Armscor got their humble start as a printshop and sporting goods store in Manila all the way back in 1905. In the past few decades they’ve made a big name for themself in America thanks to their Rock Island Armory 1911 pattern pistols, but their ammo has plenty of its own fans as well. Here’s your chance to load the same bullets as Armscor to make your own 223 Rem/5.56x45 ammo!

    This case contains 4,000 55 grain FMJBT bullets. Each .224” diameter bullet is hardened by a gilding metal jacket for certain feeding in a semi-auto, and sports a cannelure to facilitate proper crimping. Armscor’s bullet components possess the uniform weight distribution that tight groupings can’t exist without. These bullets’ boat tails not only improve their ballistic coefficient, but also make them easier to seat in the case. Make your own M193 rounds, or get more inventive if you like. You’ll have plenty of room to experiment with 4,000 bullets for handloading!

    Please note: These are bullets only, not loaded ammunition! Unless you know how to load your own ammunition, you will be unable to do anything with these bullets except regret ordering them.

    Wish I had bought more

    I was looking for reloading components and found these and ordered them right away. I went back the next day to buy more but they were out of stock. A great price and fast shipping. If they are ever back in stock I will get more. Now where's the primers?

    Awesome Supplier

    Impeccable service. I ordered these bullets sight unseen for plinking and I got them in a few days. I cannot comment on the characteristics of them because I am primer less, but hopefully that will change soon but who knows. Considering the state we find ourselves in when it comes to reloading supplies, I wish I would have doubled my order.

    These Amscor bullets in .224 arrived faster than expected and look great. The weight is very consistent.

    We bought these for resale and thus far everyone has been well satisfied.

    We separated these into 100 count bags for resale and had a few extra.

    Good value

    Never having ordered these before, I expected there to be some defective or deformed ones. So far I've found no problems.

    Review by Johnson's Temple of Boom (Posted on 2/3/2021)

    Great deal

    Decent bullets for punching paper and ringing steel. Grain weights are quite consistent to advertised weight. Wonderful shipping, and boxing. I will certainly be buying again as I need. And definitely from Wideners!

    Great looking bullets

    These are high quality bullets. Have not reloaded and fired any but do not expect any problems when I do. Too many Honey Do's with the Holidays.

  2. Speer .224 Diameter Bullets - 70 Grain Semi-Spitzer SP – 5000 Count


    In stock

    Cost Per Bullet 12.0¢ per bullet
    Bullet Weight 70 Grain
    Bullet Caliber 22-250, 220 Swift, 221 Rem Fireball, 222 Rem, 222 Rem Mag, 223 Rem, 5.56x45mm
    Quantity 5000
    Bullet Type Spitzer Soft Point (SSP)
    Manufacturer Speer
    Manufacturer SKU 71053

    We only have one reason not to recommend this case of 5,000 component bullets by Speer: At a whopping 50 pounds, our warehouse guys really don’t want to have to pick it up!

    Speer makes these .224 diameter bullets so you can load your own high performance hunting cartridges. At 70 grains each bullet is nice and heavy, giving it the momentum it needs to resist cross and vertical winds in flight and still penetrate its target deeply. The bullet has a semi-spitzer profile, combining the spitzer’s ballistically efficient form with the round nose’s ability to transfer more energy on impact. And as a soft point, the bullet’s exposed lead core will promote considerable deformation as it tumbles within soft tissue to produce a debilitating wound channel.

    Order your giant case of bullets and you’ll have one quarter of the handloader’s recipe all taken care of for a long, long time! (Did we mention that we offer brass cases as well?)

    Important! This is not loaded ammunition. Please do not order this case of bullets for reloading unless you intend to make your own ammo.
