.222 Remington ammo (known as the 5.7x43mm in Europe) is a predecessor to the .223 Remington and 5.56 NATO. It was introduced in 1950 and is still used for hunting small to midsize game.
Like its descendants, the .222 Remington typically fires a bullet around 55 grains in weight at a muzzle velocity of about 3,000 feet per second. Many loads in this caliber are optimized for hunting and feature soft point bullets that expand without fragmenting to preserve edible meat. Others use jacketed hollow points that fragment for high killing power against varmints.
Soft point ammo is available from Federal's Power-Shok series as well as Prvi Partizan and Winchester. Polymer-tipped hollow point loads can be had from Fiocchi, Hornady, and Federal.
