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.

There’s the 223/5.56 classic, of course, but also the 22-250, the 222 Rem, and the 223 WSSM. Which round will you put your special touch on?
Better yet, these happen to be exceptionally high quality .224 diameter bullets for reloading. At 55 grains they can easily offer up ballistics like the M193, and with their total metal jackets they offer several unique benefits to performance.
A TMJ’s jacket totally encompasses the bullet – including the base of the core. That improves accuracy by preventing the base of the bullet from warping during ignition. It makes for a cleaner barrel, as no lead will evaporate during ignition to stick to the rifling. It even makes for a healthier shooter, especially if they’re shooting indoors where lead vapors could have lingered around in the air.
Speer utilizes an electrochemical process to yield highly concentric and balanced jackets. They carefully control for bullet weight, and ensure each projectile totals .725” long. Speer is so confident in this bullet that they bill it as ideal for competitive shooting!
Hey! Please make sure you don’t expect loaded ammunition when you order this case of component bullets. You can not fire these bullets right out of the box – they are for loading your own ammo at home!

Great plinking bullets.
Bought these to learn how to reload and plink with my Mini Ranch. Great value for the money, but beside that, .223 Remington is pretty hard to find anywhere. I bought 2000, so when I run out, I'll be back.

An extremely well made bullet
Speer has always had an excellent reputation for quality in bullets, and this is proof. You will not be disappopinted should you want to buy some for your own reloading. I am glad that they packed them in small boxes of 100 so the weight doesn't damage their fine finish.
