222 Remington Magnum
The 222 Remington Magnum was introduced in 1958 for the Remington Model 722 bolt- action rifle, after being in experimental
military test, but never adopted by the U.S. Military.
The 222 Remington Magnum has 20% more capacity and delivers 100 F.P.S. more velocity then the now current 222 Remington
production cartridge.
The 222 Remington Magnum and Remington 223 or (5.56NATO) have almost the same ballistics, however the 222 Remington
Magnum has about 5 % more case capacity.
Do not fire the Remington 223 in a 222 Remington Magnum rifle, it is not the same cartridge.
