222 REMINGTON

The following data was developed in a Remington 40XBBR rifle with a 20-inch barrel. The only work we did to it was re-bed the action, making sure the whole of the action was bedded in the stock. The barrel was free floated completely.

Winchester brass and Federal 205M primers were used in all the following loads. A Leupold BR24 scope was installed in Jewel rings on Kelbly bases. All groups were 5 shots at 100 yards.
